1980 | DAVID BOWIE | PIERROT WITH THE SILVER SHOE

1980 | David Bowie
Ashes To Ashes 12" (Disco Remix) - RCA Victor

David was a man of his word. He actually wrote songs in the interim, real songs! When I heard him sing the lyrics to ‘Ashes To Ashes’ I got goose bumps. It was the character of Major Tom from ‘Space Oddity’ brought up to the present.
