David Bowie Tribute Organizer Wants the Roots to Return
Mood. I've never been so insecure or petty as to deny a fellow musician use of ANY of my equipment (or my band's equipment—-or resources or contacts or knowledge or ANYTHING) it angers me when that same courtesy is not reciprocated. (Believe you me I was about to get #TomPetty or #PettyWap or #PetRockAndCLSmooth or #BlackPetty or however you wanna roll wit it)—keeping a level head and not being self destructive is a weak point I'm working on. But I'm also keeping it true: The Roots/Bilal/Kimbra (w/ Wendy Melvoin, DD Jackson & Ray Angry) pulled out of these Bowie gigs. We have patience. But we do NOT have patience for the #Bitchassness. Enjoy your precious equipment.
Meanwhile, A-listers such as Cyndi Lauper and Debbie Harry will be part of the tribute shows on Thursday and Friday, which will take place at New York City’s Carnegie Hall and Radio City Music Hall, respectively. The event was announced before Bowie died on January 10, and demand to attend the shows grew so high after his passing, Dorf had to add a second night.
