A tribute to a Starman
"The truth is of course is that there is no journey. We are arriving and departing all at the same time."
"I don't know where I'm going from here, but I promise it won't be boring."
Following the tragic loss of the 'starman' David Bowie, Steve Orchard takes a look back at the icon's career and life in this touching Cortina Nights tribute. With words from former friends, lovers and landlord's, this special show gets to the heart of everything 'Bowie'. Through a collection of only Bowie tracks, 30 tracks lead through his years devoted to music and innovation. With comments regarding Bowie's formative career, all the way through to his astounding successes in music and his tempting character, we look back through Bowie in all of his glory. A 'starman' is gone, but never forgotten.
“For those of us who have tried to live their dream, no matter the genre of that dream, and regardless of how well or not we succeed in achieving that dream, there will have been moments in our lives when we have met and mixed with characters we would have chosen to have been part of our dreams. Sometimes the moment has been a fleeting bright flash, other times the moment can be most of a life time. Which, in the great scheme of things, it still feels like a moment. Because the privilege of sharing our personal space with these special characters such as David, is always going to be fresh and always just that, a privilege. And I guess that David Bowie filled that kind of place for you Tim, and your friends who knew him. He was indeed special.” Tim Hollier, Cortina Nights David Bowie Tribute.
