Source Material

“I suppose the majority of what I was writing about initially came from news coverage and media events. I’m like everyone else, I know what’s going on in the world basically through television and the newspaper — one for the pictures, the other for the truth.”

—David Bowie (1947-2016), iconic English glam-rocker, 1987
