David Bowie: 1947 - 2016

David Robert Jones (8 January 1947 – 10 January 2016), known professionally as David Bowie... Plenty has been written and said about David Bowie today, I cannot add much more. Musically his work has been exceptional. As Beehive Candy is just about music, a few personal words on David Bowie the singer, composer and musician. Many years ago a friend managed to get me a ticket to see David Bowie at the Fairfield Halls in Croydon (UK).

This particular bootleg is known as - David Bowie - Strange Fascination 74. This is one of the few high quality recordings of the Diamond Dogs Tour of 1974. This one was recorded at The Universal Amphitheatre in Los Angeles on the 5th of September 1974. Not much in the way of information for this gig, I am guessing it was an FM broadcast, very listenable throughout.
