从此,在伦敦多了18个要去的地方

Updated: Sep 9, 2019





有人叫他鲍爷也有人叫他鲍姨,可能你不爱摇滚并不认识他。今夜的伦敦却为他无眠,上千人聚集在他长大的地方,伦敦的Brixton为他悼念。




还有洛杉矶




纽约



柏林




荷兰



他个随心所欲的人

有人说他是变色龙

也有人说他是外星人




他是视觉系

连自己的两只眼睛的颜色都与众不同

这是他标志性的闪电装

他是双性恋

结过两次婚

育有两个孩子



他是一个十足的妖孽

而对于很多人来讲

他身上不只有音乐

他也是一个英雄



他,大卫·鲍伊

与披头士乐队、皇后乐队、滚石乐队

并列为英国二十世纪最具影响力的摇滚明星

他的儿子

是《源代码》和《魔兽世界》的导演

上周五,鲍爷生日当天

他的最新专辑《Blackstar》发行

粉丝们也用歌声来致敬





大老远从洛杉矶来伦敦的美国粉

就想看鲍爷生活过的地方

还担心brixton这面壁画会不会被擦掉



现在看来

这面2013年由JimmyC画得壁画

也会成为很多人到伦敦必去地之一

最后,附上一封1967年年轻的鲍爷刚开始走向美国走向国际时,给14岁的粉丝Sandra的回信原文:(Sandra当时就觉得鲍爷的音乐可以和披头士媲美,眼光也是棒棒哒) Dear Sandra, When I called in this, my manager's office, a few moments ago I was handed my very first American fan letter - and it was from you. I was so pleased that I had to sit down and type an immediate reply, even though Ken is shouting at me to get on with a script he badly needs. That can wiat (wi-at? That's a new English word which means wait). I've been waiting for some reaction to the album from American listeners. There were reviews in Billboard and Cash Box, but they were by professional critics and they rarely reflect the opinions of the public. The critics were very flattering however. They even liked the single "Love You Till Tuesday". I've got a copy of the American album and they've printed the picture a little yellow. I'm really not that blond. I think the picture on the back is more 'me'. Hope you like those enclosed. In answer to your questions, my real name is David Jones and I don't have to tell you why I changed it. 'Nobody's going to make a monkey out of you' said my manager. My birthday is January 8th and I guess I'm 5'10". There is a Fan Club here in England, but if things go well in the States then we'll have one there I suppose. It's a little early to even think about it. I hope one day to get to America. My manager tells me lots about it as he has been there many times with other acts he manages. I was watching an old film on TV the other night called 'No Down Payment' a great film, but rather depressing if it is a true reflection of The American Way Of Life. However, shortly after that they showed a documentary about Robert Frost the American poet, filmed mainly at his home in Vermont, and that evened the score. I am sure that that is nearer the real America. I made my first movie last week. Just a fifteen minutes short, but it gave me some good experience for a full length deal I have starting in January. Thankyou for being so kind as to write to me and do please write again and let me know some more about yourself. Yours sincerely, (Signed, 'David Bowie')
