Grigg on Bowie

Elizabeth Grigg recently saw David Bowie in concert. Reading her post gave me excuse to think about my Bowie event in 1998. I drove 300 miles to see Bowie in a small club in Philly. Not a theater, but a big open bar with two levels and a capacity of, I think 2000. I stood up on the 2nd level and was right up against the balcony railing with Bowie not 200 feet from me. I think I spent the first 1/2 hour just saying "oh my god, oh my god!" (not that I think he is a god – well, almost) but I just could not believe that I was in the same room with him, that close after over 20 years of having him as my a#1 favorite rock star.

What was interesting was waiting in line to go in there were more people in their 30’s 40’s and 50’s then the usual concert goer and quite a number of them were bringing their kids with them to see and experience this legend.
