How David Bowie Taught Me to Do the Gimme Gimme Dance
Huffington Post - about 1 year
David Bowie's passing rocketed me back to never forgotten pre-pubescent memories. I was a sensitive adolescent who locked myself in my room drawing private planets and the Rock & Roll bands that in habited them. Discovering Bowie and Glam Rock was the life raft I needed to survive in a grey and barren suburban landscape. He was someone who poetically articulated how I felt. His songs were secret encryptions for freaks the world over to communicate by. If you saw someone on the street in a Bowie t-shirt or a red rooster coif, you knew they were family.

When a band was to play, word of mouth traveled like lightning. Bus schedules, hitchhiking and parents' cars were hot-wired by determined glitter babies racing to stadium parking lots and misfit dance clubs.
