Gutted I was when i read this morning that one of my favourite bands, the maccabees are calling it a day. It’s been a terrible year for bands calling it a day and musicians dying. This on a personal level has properly affected me a lot with only david bowies death in january feeling worse.
I discovered the band in 2012 through them playing live on jools holland and instantly feel in love with there music. I brought all there albums which helped me a lot when i went through the worst period of my life in 2013 by giving me hope during the period of fear and uncertainty. It made it apt that i was able to here them live in 2015 at the live lounge session they did in norwich.
What a sad day
David Bowie is now up there with the stars after falling to earth. Like many of you, I am shocked and sadened by the news like a lot of you are. I didn’t belive my mum at first when she said it. I feel compelled to write my thoughts today so here we go….
He was a massive influence on my music and the way i live my life. The first track i listend to of his was starman and i was hooked. He taught me that it’s ok to be different and avoid the main crowd. His comeback in 2013 was brilliant and some of the best music ever. My favourite album by hime is hunky dory which helped me a lot when i went through a very difficult period in 2013.My thoughts are with his family at this sad time.
Before I go, I will embed some of my favourite tracks and pictures of him.
There will never be another David Bowie again. His music will live on forever
