On Monday night I participated for the first time with this group that performs tribute nights regularly. This one was for Bowie’s birthday, as well as Elvis Presley’s. Actually, was it also Elvis’ birthday – yes it was! Strange how huge cultural icons have so many remoras of info swirling around them, one is bound to miss some key data.
It was a great night in that, for me, it was reminiscent of clumsy theater with hectic, chaotic talent abounding. As I expected from the enormous roster of songs, there were quite a few train wrecks – but as I also expected, many magic moments sprang forth.
There’s only a bit of video, at least so far. But here’s a clip of me singing China Girl with a very talented group of musicians.
