That's when the hubby and I saw David Bowie perform. Of course, hubby wasn't hubby then. He was my beau, though! The Ex was on at the time. So rides and stuff. Concert at night.
In the course of our day at the Exhibition, I went to use one of the washrooms at the old Exhibition Stadium. ( Gone now) Up the stairs to some level, not sure which one? Beau at my side. ;)
What do we see? The band tuning instruments and practicing. And it sure looked & sounded like David Bowie singing with band. No costume. Just jeans and a t shirt. Very scaled back compared to the show we were set to see. We watched for a few moments then hightailed it before security came 'round. Though security was not then, what it is now.
Recalliing today, watching through the chain link fence from above thinking it sure was a great sneak peak before the show. And, speaking of the show..... The fans were out in full Bowie costume. I cannot tell you how many Ziggy Stardusts or "Lads (and lasses) in Sane" were there that day? Great fun. When your 20 & 21 years old!
Oh yeah, and to make this story even more interesting- We hitch hiked a ride down the 406 (highway) to go and buy our tickets- A mad man driving above the speed limit picked us up and delivered us safely, amazingly, to Sam the Record Man. Whew!
The concert itself was very good. I recall enjoying it but being dam, dam tired!
Obviously, I like so many others have a number of fave Bowie songs- But there is one song that sticks out for me as, not one of the most popular, but as an interesting and challenging song. It also happens to be on the Bowie album I like best:
Station to Station- From the album of the same name
And yes, I have this, ALBUM on vinyl!
Buffy left the link to Bowie's latest:
Buffy, feeling gutted.
Titled- Lazarus (the resurrected one)
