Playing Cards with David Bowie

STORY BY: Ann Marie Bourassa
YEAR: 1974

Ann's a wardrobe mistress and was working the David Bowie show, Diamond Dogs, the first time he came to Ottawa. His personal costumes didn't arrive so Ann went shopping then jazzed up the clothes. Ann was in the wings, watching the show, when the audience rushed the stage. The security guard beside her got David and the band then locked them all into a room with a pack of cards. While playing cards with David Bowie, Ann was impressed with this extremely intelligent man. Thanks for sharing, Ann.
