This article was written by David Bowie in 1974, shortly after his recent visit to the States. However, it is from the very moment that we became aware of him, when he introduced himself as The Thin White Duke.

“I have spent many long hours getting into character for David Bowie. I am inspired by the blue-eyed soul of Jazz and the bright colors of American Pop. But, my personal favorite is his ability to play with the words of the song that he is reading out. It takes on a life of its own. It is what makes the mood in which the reader feels while reading.

In this particular reading for David Bowie, my inspiration came from jazz legend Miles Davis.”

“Many years ago, my mother’s best friend had just passed away and was one of the people who helped my mother make up her mind about David Bowie. It was a wonderful experience and she invited me to come along with her to the funeral.

One night, while we were waiting for the service to begin, my friend and her mother walked into the living room where we were sitting. I had never seen them before.

They were both very elegant, with dark hair, dark eyes, and platinum-blond locks. Both were dressed in very formal black suits and gowns.

I asked them what they thought of David Bowie. My friend, having seen his movie The Man Who Fell To Earth, a documentary based on a book by Henry Zinn, had this to say:

“He is very real and a great deal of humor is in his music. He is an entertainer more than anything else. The most important thing is that he is very sophisticated and takes on and explores the life of the different culture groups he goes into.

He has no love for ethnic specific things, but is a very observant person. It is interesting that he is the kind of person who will listen to the one country music group and then will make a point of listening to the other.

For me, he is a very religious person, like everybody else, but I can see why many people find him not so very religious. At the funeral, as the mood grew darker, we sat on the sofa together, talking quietly and trying to imagine what would happen if we ever met David Bowie.

He had that voice in his voice and we discussed how he could have so much self-confidence that he could take such a deep conversation with us. We are still friends and I continue to receive advice and ideas from him.
