I asked my sixteen-year-old son if he'd heard that David Bowie had died - and to my astonishment, he had!
"Do you know his music?" I then asked.
"No," he said. "Do you?"
"A bit," I said. "I liked Fame."
"Oh, he wrote that?" En-Uk sounded surprised.
At first, I was taken aback, but I quickly realized what song he meant. "Not that Fame. An earlier one. The one I mean came out as a single in 1975, and I first heard it as a freshman at Baylor."
I should add, for my readers' edification, that it was recorded by Bowie, but written with Carlos Alomar and John Lennon.
