I love Bowie
Lillian Roxon boldly declares ‘I love [David] Bowie’.
Seamlessly interweaving criticism, fandom, wit, gossip and personal narrative, journalist Roxon is a fine storyteller. This anecdote about Angie Bowie biting her on the right bosom paints a vivid picture of the contemporary rock scene for Australian listeners, placing Roxon at its epicentre.
Roxon also compares David Bowie and Mick Jagger of The Rolling Stones in this excerpt from a 2SM radio interview in Sydney, recorded about six months before she died.
