David Bowie

I don't remember exactly what year it was...maybe 1970, Poco was touring England playing concerts and making the occasional TV appearance.
One day we shot a British music TV show called Old Grey Whistle Test. David Bowie was also on the show. We'd never heard of Bowie. I don't think many other people had either.
I remember watching him in the studio, fronting his band in a black, almost see through, skin-tight leotard and with colorful eyeliner and complimentary eyeshadow.
It was pretty shocking. Not a popular look in the world of country-rock music at the time.
I didn't really get it then, but years later I did.
Bowie will be missed.
