Dear Mr Mental.
You ask if I have any more ......
Absolutely. you may have heard of a song called 'Siggy Stardust and the spiders from Mars'
Have you read the words....complete bollocks. I wrote it on drugs and I never understood what I was on about so I sold it to a geezer called Dave (one of the Daves) who then changed it to 'Ziggy Stardust' and got away with it. I saw him on TV the other day on a program called Extras, and I was a bit pissed off because he wrote that song about me: you know the one about the the little fat man. These guys will do anything to get on TV. Do you know his real name is David Jones. At least he stayed loyal to the society of Daves.. He never really knew if he was a bo-ee or a bough-ee though. Talk about trying to keep up with Jones. Mind you he did have a bit of charisma and made a good song out of another of my lyrics called 'All the Young Duds' and then gave it to Mott the Hoople.
HIs first hit song was plagiarised from one of mine which was largely autobiographical and called 'spaced out oddity' ...i'm floating in a most peculiar way....... here am I floating round my keyboard... windows has turned blue and I really need the loo.
PS the barmaid (Kay) refered to in my last message has nothing to do with the Redwing.... Dave wanted me to point out that the reference was just artistic licence....he couldn't remember her name.
And of course 'windows' hadn't been invented in 1967. I shall one day reveal the true story.
