The Phish Tribute To The High Priest of Glam-Rock, David Bowie
There's no doubt that David Bowie was always on a different plane of existence than the rest of us. For instance, at age 17, he founded
The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Long-Haired Men.
Yes, that was a thing. He discussed their mission in a 1964 TV appearance, in which he was still going by Davey Jones. (He went on to change his name to
avoid confusion with the frontman of The Monkees.)
But despite his creation of bizarre stage personas - like
Ziggy Stardust, The Thing White Duke and Jareth the Goblin King - Bowie never embraced cannabis culture.
But the culture certainly embraced Bowie. In 1986, marijuana jam band
Phish released this track in honor of the glam-rock pioneer. Have a listen to as we remember Bowie:
