Baltimore musician Ed Schrader pays tribute to David Bowie

So much of what Bowie means to me I've kept at a distance. I never understood why.

At first, I just wrote him off completely, I wouldn't even give him a chance. I clowned on my buddy Bill when I came across his copy of "Changesonebowie" while flipping through his CDs. It was 1999. The only substantial thing I knew about Bowie at that point was that "he wrote that one Nirvana song." Later on in 2002, while enjoying my one and only semester at SUNY Purchase, I made friends with a few guys that would get together and watch old VHS tapes. Our buddy Mike had a big paper bag of them. Most of the tapes contained old episodes of "120 Minutes"...
