Lest We Forget You Mr Bowie
10 January 2023
Has it really been seven years? Seven years today since we lost David Bowie; icon, legend and the most important musical influence in my life.
I've written a few words on my Bowie page but let me just say, I will never forget you Mr Bowie.
What a way to start off Bowie week 2023. Chatting to Caz Tricks on Stony Radio about my love of Bowie.

Coming up to a big age I find myself reflecting a lot on the past. I feel very lucky to have grown up in the post punk generation. We learnt early about diversity and accepting each other for our differences. There were punks, new romantics and even the odd rocker all getting along together. This was in the days before ‘Goth’ existed. I classed myself as ‘Alternative’ and still prefer that term today. I don’t like to be catagorised into a box and really threw people when I told them enjoyed a bit of Abba.
The post punk generation was creative. We made our own fashions and music. Never had
bands been so stylish! But it wasn’t just about looks. The new electronic sounds coming out
of this era was like nothing that had been heard before. David Bowie himself went backstage
at an early Human League gig and told them they were the future of music. A high accolade.
But most of all we all believed we could achieve our dreams. It was an exciting and vibrant
times, full of colour with big hair, big make up and big ambitions. My dreams have changed
a bit over the years. Back then, I dreamed of being an actress (I do have Lamda qualifications)
and loved being on the stage. But dreams change as you grow and now instead of being on
the stage I review a lot of theatre instead. This is not the frustrations of an actress that never
quite made it…this is actually where I want to be. I love going to theatre and gigs and turning a big number isn’t going to change a thing.
So despite a few more days of clinging onto my 40’s for dear life I have forgotten that turning 50 means…
1) I qualify for saga and that awful life assurance for the over 50s!
2) Travel insurance goes up
3) Age UK can support me
Well f**k that shit.... if you know me you know that nothing will change. I will still be gigging and reviewing. I'm still me!
How many 50 year olds crimp their hair and wear dresses like me? We are the post punk generation and the rules are about to change!!
Looking back is for old folk. And I'm not old! The best is yet to come!
A Significant Birthday
