chameleon, comedian, Corinthian and caricature


Waking up on the 10th January 2016 and hearing that David had died, time suddenly stood still, and I was spiraled into a strange, dream like space. My youth flashed before me, I need to hear his music and replay albums and tracks [notably Hunky Dory, Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane] that inspired me and to trawl through pictures, interviews, music clips of David so that I could keep hearing his voice over and over again. He was a one off, a musical genius, a legend, he was chameleon, comedian, corinthian and caricature - he may have left us in spirit but his legacy is forever. My thoughts quickly moved to his family as I clicked through a mass of photographs of David and Iman, their weddding, shots at various events etc. I thought to myself, "If I am struggling to deal with this death, a man I never met, never knew, how on earth are David's family coping."? I have the hugest admiration for the way that David and Iman conducted their private life, protecting their daughter and maintaining their privacy, keeping her away from the spotlight. But Iman knew what was going to happen, she nursed him through cancer and now he is gone. Iman, my thoughts are to you, to Lexie, to Duncan. I hope with all my heart that you can find solace somewhere, somehow in all that David has left for you. My deepest sympathy Lisa x
