Earlier this year, on a granite paving slab in Mossgrove garden, I pasted an old newspaper page with an image of David Bowie alongside a black star. This temporary art has now faded. Yesterday I pasted another old newspaper page on top of David Bowie. This page reported the queues in Edinburgh in 1983 as young folk tried to get tickets for Bowie’s latest concert. I recall some of my school friends from Firrhill High School bunking off to queue for these tickets!

In May 1987 I travelled overnight from Aberdeen to Sunderland for a concert by David Bowie in Roker Park [stadium of light].
