A Tribute to David Bowie - DJ Janis Short Tells of Her Memories of Her Friend David

David Bowie in 1970 - Picture courtesy of Janis Short

It was meant to be a  celebration at the HangOut Club tonight to mark David Bowie's birthday, but sadly, instead it turned out to be a tribute to one of the greatest rock legends of all time. We learned  today that David Bowie had died after his tragic battle with cancer.  It was particularly poignant for HangOut owner Janis Short who, in real life, had known David Bowie.  Janis told  me "David was my very first celebrity interview .. I lied to get it...he was so kind to me ...and we remained friends for the rest of his life... I will miss him and his genius."  Janis had taken the above photograph of the handsome young Bowie, she said she had taken the picture on the day she met him in New York City in 1970.  For Janis's full story see her FB page

Janis played a great set of Bowie music, everyone really enjoyed the evening, tinged with such sadness as it was.  Janis has a wealth of memories about her time in the real life Music Industry and  some fascinating stories to tell.  Thank you Janis for sharing this tonight about David Bowie, he will be greatly missed by all of his many fans and my condolences to his family and friends.
