Bowie Was Part Of Our Lives, Says Wreckless Eric

Share

“The eulogies, tributes and public outpouring of grief on Facebook and Twitter and everywhere about the passing of David Bowie, is not really about him so much as about the people grieving. Because what’s happening is, he shaped our lives, whether you agree with that or not is beside the point. He reinvented pop music and style. He had such an influence on us. He was part of our lives. So when he died, part of us died too.”

The contemplative words of Wreckless Eric, the man who penned one of rock and pop music’s most enduring songs, Whole Wide WorldEric joins Norman B for the next edition of Life Elsewhere to chat and play tracks from his excellent new album, cryptically titled, America.

Life Elsewhere airs:
Sundays 12 noon ET at The Source WMNF HD3
