Well before Scarlett Johansson geared up in pleather to play Black Widow and before Lynda Carter became iconic as Wonder Woman on TV, David Bowie’s wife, model Angie Bowie, AKA “Jipp Jones” was being tried out for both roles for TV. It didn’t happen, but at least we have photographic evidence of Angie in costume.
I’m just as much of a fan of David Bowie as everyone else, and I love the song “Space Oddity” for its haunting elegance, but turn it into a children’s book? I guess kids have to learn about loss at some point, but damn. “Space Oddity” by Andrew Kolb has a gorgeous 1960s style to it, but it seems at odds with the song itself.
This is Stevie Riks. Yeah, both Lennon and Bowie are the same impressionist, and he’s quite simply amazing. I’ve been a fan for years now, and I’ve enjoyed his Bowie, Beatles, Bee Gees, and dozens of other spot-on impressions enough to share. Keep in mind, he plays all the music AND does all the singing. He’s really quite talented.
