I’ll keep this short, I know you have places to be, Bowie.

I heard about 12 hours ago that Bowie passed, and it still doesn’t feel real. The term “end of an era” doesn’t seem to cut it here. David Bowie was a foundation for music. Even though that foundation is no longer expanding, it will always be there for anyone to find support in whatever they’re doing. We have to say goodnight, that’s definite. What we don’t have to say is goodbye: this won’t be the last Bowie conversation I have, this won’t be the last time I dance to a Bowie song, this won’t be the last time I sing Bowie and karaoke (or in my home or at work or in my car), this won’t be the last time I play a Bowie riff on my guitar. It won’t be the last time for you either. We can be Heroes, again and again.
