What he said . . . RIP David Bowie

“My attraction to her was immediate and all-encompassing. I couldn’t sleep for the excitement of our first date,” he told HELLO!. “That she would be my wife, in my head, was a done deal. I’d never gone after anything in my life with such passion in all my life. I just knew she was the one.”

– David Bowie. Quote from OKAY magazine.

Like a number of Bowie’s fans, I’m in shock over his death.

Bowie’s music was a major part of my life. And his declaration of love for Iman in the OKAY mag quote above, could have been written for a romance novel. In the same interview, Bowie stated that he was already naming their children when he met IMAN. It’s something anyone would want to hear from the person she (or he) loves. RIP David Bowie. Your genius and talent will be missed.
