Golden Years

My friend Tony and I went to see David Bowie in Cleveland at the Public Theatre in 1976 on his tour to promote Station to Station.  We sat in the fifth row – center.  Or stood on our chairs that is.  Right there – face to face with the thin white duke.  What a great night.  At one point he sang “I’m Waiting for the Man” and when he got to the words “Hey white boy, what you doin’ uptown” I know he pointed right at me.  (Of course, Tony might say it was to him.)  Never did see him live in concert again, but I can’t imagine ever topping that first experience as a 15 year old fan.  And then fan for life.  RIP Ziggy.
