The most extraordinary blazing period of Bowie’s genius was 1972 to 1977. He was off his head on cocaine from 1972 to 1977. He had orange hair from 1972 to 1977. After 1977 he decided to clean up, and never did anything interesting again. Do I say this to slight David Bowie? No. What he created, the way he burned himself into the UNIVERSE from 72 to 77 is something so extraordinary, and I honestly think without parallel. In those 5 years he made himself the greatest ever. Sitting at the bar of the Berlin Plaza, with tears rolling down my cheeks, thinking about David Bowie in Berlin. Strange isn’t it. Strange what emotions really move us. Unpredictable. Going to his studio tomorrow, and feeling already overwhelmed with emotion. I’ll probably get a taxi.
