    I've been a fan of Bowie for 35 years...this is a small tribute to him & all that he contributed. Thank you David for making the world a more magical place...you were a friend to creative people, & to all those who felt "different" in particular.
    "Oh no love, you're not alone!"
    1. I found this amazing hand printed fabric on eBay...created by Spoonflower Fabric. I ordered some & had this bespoke shirt made by my tailor.
    2. Another pic of me wearing the shirt with iridescent silver shoes to add a touch of stardust.
    3. Vintage Bowie badges from the 1980s.
    4. Vintage concert tickets from the two times I saw Bowie in concert - November 10, 1987 (Glass Spider Tour) & February 21, 2004 (Reality Tour). Both concerts were at the now demolished Sydney Entertainment Centre.

      I'm still thinking that should be a Foster's instead of a phone. :+)

      Most amusing artfoot! :-)
      But I am far more enamoured of a fine red wine than beer...

      I attended the Seriously Moonlight show in Tacoma, WA in 1983. The Tubes were the opening act for Bowie, as I recall. The first show in the newly opened Tacoma Dome. I lived in Seattle at the time.

      Brian Duffy's five different photographic shoots with David Bowie, documenting Bowie's career and pioneering reinvention, as well as Duffy's special relationship with the artist over almost a decade .Includes some of the most famous Bowie images together without takes and rare shots "Talking about a creative session is like talking about a boxing match. It happened because there was a little bit of magic in the room that night. I'll say it myself, it's a fucking great cover." Brian Duffy Brian Duffy defined the image of the 1960s, and was as famous as the stars he photographed. Together with David Bailey and Terence Donovan, he is recognized as one of the innovators of "documentary" fashion photography, a style which revolutionized fashion imagery and furthermore the fashion industry. Duffy's most famous photograph dates from the 1970s and is the iconic and revolutionary cover of David Bowie's album Aladdin Sane, a shot that became the defining look of Bowie's long career, and has been referred to as the Mona Lisa of pop. The photographer and the rock star collaborated on four other projects: Ziggy Stardust, The Man Who Fell to Earth, Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) and Lodger. They worked together during the pivotal years of Bowie's career; when the king of glam was assuming and discarding extraordinary personas, Duffy was capturing them all. Written by David Bowie's biographer, Kevin Cann, Duffy Bowie: Five Sessions features anecdotes and stories from those attending the shoots including Tony Defries (Bowie's manager at the time of Ziggy Stardust); Celia Philo (designer) & Philip Castle (airbrush artist) from the famous Aladdin Sane shoot; Francis Newman (Duffy's studio manager); May Routh (costume designer) from The Man Who Fell to Earth; Geoff MacCormack (musician and Bowie's childhood friend); Derek Boshier (art director of Lodger); Natasha Kornilof costume designer for Scary Monsters; Edward Bell (artist); Steve Strange (musician) and Duffy's son, Chris, who also worked on the Scary Monsters session. Included are many unseen images and behind the scenes photographs. "It wasn't until we saw the contact sheets the next day I remember thinking, God this is spectacular. You just knew you had cracked it, boy, did you know it." Celia Philo" '-))

      Thanks for sharing your memories, kwqd! I became a Bowie fan in 1983, aged 10...he did bring that tour to Australia (& filmed the videos for China Girl & Let's Dance here too) but I was a bit too young to go. My partner saw him on his first tour here in 1978.

      Thanks so much, Justanovice! I made sure that my tailor saved the excess fabric & have enough left over to make a scatter cushion cover & a few other things.
      Yes, I miss him very much, he was (& remains) such an inspiration. A true artist in every sense of the word!

      Roycroftbooksfromme1, thanks for your thoughts...I have seen the recent book on Duffy's creative collaborations with Bowie, & will have to get myself a copy sometime.
