why i liked david bowie

iconoclast

monsterously creative

brilliantly managed his career for decades

generously shared his life

unearthly voice

saw him perform at berkeley high school

fronted by the polyphonic spree



(we still have our robes)

said nice things about his wife

transcendent talent

experimental

never afraid to push his personal limits

inspired symphonies

inspired grunge




inspired broadway

a phoenix who came to life on stage
