Mike Garson's Tribute to David Bowie

One of David Bowie's most consistent, most significant and important collaborators has been world renowned pianist and composer Mike Garson. He first started working with Bowie back in 1972 and continued all the way through to his last live performance in 2006. Earlier today he uploaded his new song entitled Tribute to David:

This song was originally written and recorded in 2011 by Mr. Garson for his Bowie Variations album but he has never performed it since then.

From Mike Garson's Facebook page:

"While the whole album was variations on David’s music, this one meant the most to me because I wrote it for him. It’s how I felt about David in musical terms. Though there’s no doubt I have more music for David coming, this is what I have to offer this morning. Please feel free to share this with others and respond with your memories, thoughts and feelings."

  1. This is a really great tribute. Thank you for posting it.

  2. Something happened on the day he died
    Spirit rose a metre and stepped aside
    Somebody else took his place, and bravely cried
    (I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar)

  3. BB King, Lemmy Kilmister, Scott Weiland, Chris Squire, Bryn Merrick (The Damned), Gary Richrath (REO Speedwagon), Dave Black (Spiders from Mars), Bruce Rowland, Allan Fryer and so many other well known musicians all sadly recently passed away. RIP

  4. Here are some cool photos of David Bowie in Japan:
