#8 & #9 Mourn the death of a rock star and have the wheels stolen off your car

It was very sad to hear the news of the death of David Bowie yesterday. I remember listening to Hunky Dory over and over as a student and was fortunate to see him live at the Milton Keynes bowl in, I think, 1989 in what was billed as his last greatest hits tour but turned out to be only the first of a series of last greatest hits tours.

Bowie set up a telephone line through which fans could vote for their favourite songs the most popular of which would form the set list so NME started a campaign for readers to vote for the laughing gnome. Needless to say he didn’t play it.

I think I must have been one of the last people to find out about Bowie’s death because, instead of waking up to the news like most people I woke up to find someone had stolen the back wheels off our car and had to spend the next couple of hours buying replacements.
