We Don’t Really Know Anything About David Bowie, Says Elton John

by Jeremy Kinser January 14, 2016

EJDBWhat I loved about him towards the end was his incredible privacy during what must have been 10 years of incredibly bad luck with illnesses, bad luck, heart attacks, whatever. He kept it private and in the age we live in, with Twitter where everyone knows everything about everything, he kept it to himself. He made two albums without anyone knowing he was making them. He had, you know, obviously treatment for his illnesses without anyone knowing or anyone saying anything. And that is the mystique of the man.

Because we know David Bowie the figure, the singer, the outrageous performer. But actually we don’t know anything about him. And that’s the way it should be in music, and it should be in any art form whatsoever.

They don’t make them like that anymore. We’ve lost a huge, huge talent that influenced so many people.”
