"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Funk to Funky


David Bowie was the first singer I was ever mad for. This was during his Serious Moonlight Tour. Man, I’ll never forget my grandfather agreeing to take my younger brother and me to see Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence and then wanting to leave in the middle (we stayed).

Bowie died yesterday. A sad moment but also a wonderful one–let’s celebrate, shall we?

Came in with a bang. When out with a bang. Two brand new albums and a compilation in the last 3 years of his life. We lost a treasure.

He's got to rank near the top of the greatest all-around unique talents of our time—-composing, singing, showmanship, pure art, marketing and even acting.

On a baseball note, at 96 the passing of Monte Irvin. Sitting in the bleachers the Polo Grounds as a kid I remember him well. Never played the the bigs until he was thirty but that was of another time. Class gentleman and wonderful player. RIP.
