I have numerous heroes and they are more or less influential at different times in my life, but once on my hero list, they pretty much stay there. David Bowie is one. Caitlin Moran wrote this about him in her book How to Be a Woman: “When in doubt, listen to David Bowie. In 1968, Bowie was a gay, ginger, bonk-eyed, snaggle-toothed freak walking around south London in a dress, being shouted at by thugs. Four years later, he was still exactly that—but everyone else wanted to be like him, too. If David Bowie can make being David Bowie cool, you can make being you cool. Plus, unlike David Bowie, you get to listen to David Bowie for inspiration. So you’re already one up on him, really. You're already one ahead of David Bowie."
