David Bowie // "I remember talking with John at the time…John Lennon…about people we admired, and he said to me, 'Y’know, when I’ve discovered someone new, I tend to become that person. I want to soak myself in their stuff to such an extent that I have to be them.' So when he first found Dylan, he said, he would dress like Dylan and only play his kind of music, till he kind of understood how it worked. And that’s exactly how I feel about it as well… I did that, too. I lived the life, whatever it was… It was a process of becoming, of transforming into the thing you admire and want to be. To find out 'what makes it tick.' Then, hopefully, you’ve absorbed that knowledge and you move on to something else."
