Goodnight but not Goodbye David Bowie
Our hearts are heavy this morning after hearing the news of David Bowie’s passing yesterday.
“David and his many personas were an inspiration to my life, my musical sensibilities and my career,” remarked Wayne Forte, ETA President and long time agent for David Bowie, in his earlier career. “After endlessly listening to ‘Ziggy Stardust’ and experiencing ‘Diamond Dogs’ live; work, life and career were never the same. Agenting for him for almost 20 years would have probably been enough; the fact that I was later able to work closely with him as co- producer of the ‘Serious Moonlight’ and ‘Glass Spider’ tours and as a business consultant was a longtime dream realized. Major Tom is finally on his way home. There will never be another.”
The genius that was Bowie is unmatched in so many ways. He helped shape the music industry and showed us all how to live true to ourselves. His music, movies, and characters will no doubt continue to thrive for years and generations to come.
