My David Bowie Story

When I was in college, my roommate Stu Page had an autographed poster of David Bowie on the wall of our living room. I showed it to everyone who came over, and proudly told them the story of how Stu got Bowie to sign that poster backstage at a concert. Years later, Stu admitted the truth to me. He never went backstage, never met Bowie, and signed the poster himself. All of my other friends already knew.They thought it was hilarious that I didn't recognize Stu's handwriting. If he were still alive today, I know what Bowie would have said to him. "Stu, best wishes, David Bowie."
