Your face, your race, the way that you talk— I kiss you, you’re beautiful, I want you to walk.
Song Five Years by David Bowie
Still feeling pain about DB’s death.
I think that David Bowie chose “not-his-usual” musicians to perform on Blackstar because if he used his usual musicians, they would have instinctively known what was going on with his health because of their years of history of performing with him. It might have been too heavy for them to deal with and contain.
