My personal David Bowie story began in 1980 when I was 15 years old and bought the single "Ashes To Ashes" in a local music store. I was immediately fascinated by the mysterious and odd sound and atmosphere of the song and from this moment on I was infected with the Bowie virus.
For the "Weekly Basslines" I chose the only two songs of Bowie's great heritage which I ever played live with one of my bands. I always wanted to do more, but unfortunately my band companions weren't as passionate about Bowie as I was. Maybe they will be less reluctant now!

Here's a clip with me and the staff of my music school paying a humble tribute to the great David Bowie. His music will live on forever!
