“I am married to David Jones. David Bowie and David Jones are two totally different people. I did not want to get involved with a rock star. No way. It is not a sane thing to do but David changed my mind. He wooed me. … I remember once the laces on my trainers came undone and David was down on his knees in the middle of the street tying them for me. I thought to myself, ‘This one’s a keeper.’ He’s not an enigma at home!”
So, alright. Are we all in agreement around here that David Bowie is among the world’s greatest people ever? Because if we’re not, I suppose we’re going to have some trouble seeing eye to eye throughout the rest of this article.
And how lucky is the gorgeous Iman? Jeez. Married to the legend, the man, David Bowie for over two decades now? I wonder if she ever makes him sing the corny songs from Labyrinth. I mean, I know if I were David Bowie’s wife, that’s what I’d do.
David Bowie, also known as the most talented, most fabulous musician ever, hasn’t released an album since Reality in 2003. He hasn’t toured since 2004, when he had a heart attack. That’s a fair reason to put touring on hold for a while, but it’s been six years. This is the longest hiatus that Bowie’s taken since he began his career in the late ’60′s, and he’s recently said that it’s not going to end any time soon. In a profile of Bowie’s wife, Iman, Bowie was asked about that hiatus, to which he responded with “I’m not thinking of touring. I’m comfortable.”
Maybe I’m asking too much. Maybe I was born in the wrong time. Maybe I’m just an obsessive fangirl. But if I take the energy, time, and money to buy all your albums, tell everyone I’ve ever met about your greatness, and write the script for The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars: The Musical, then I think I deserve a concert. Not even a flashy show with dance numbers and high energy, just a little acoustic set would be fine. I don’t think that’s too much to ask.
