Welcome To Aylesbowie

Today was the unveiling of the David Bowie statue/sculpture within Aylesbury town centre. In honour of it taking place, at least for one day, the town altered its name…albeit unofficially, to Aylesbowie.

If I was to take a stab at crowd numbers, I’d say a couple thousand people were there. I did my bit to represent the Simple Minds contingent…complete with gold claddagh shirt.

It is actually quite an involving piece of art, chronicling the whole of David’s career. It was great being at the unveiling. Will be good to return soon to enjoy a closer inspection and take in the full detail.

The Concrete Face

I saw this face in a charity shop in Harpenden. It was £6.50. I thought it looked very like the statue face on the Someone Somewhere In Summertime cover…and…oh, I grappled about buying it, but decided not to. Wish I had now….
