Ok, I'm a fan of both David Bowie and Jim Carroll, more so of Jim Carroll... Anyway, I was just looking t a picture or two and I think these two men look very much alike. But great musicians, both a bit strange, but never the less men the demand great respect. http://www.concertlivewire.com/jpegs/concerts/bowiebla.jpg http://www.musicobsession.com/Pictures/j/i/jimcarroll15117.jpg And theres the whole thing of aging... Considering Jim Carrolls previous Habits it's no wonder father time has taken a bat to his feature. For those of you who don't know about Jiim Carroll: For a good part of his younger life he was a huge heroine addict, and unlike Bowie he wasn't rich or famous, so he couldn't buy it on a whim, he was a poor young boy her hadta do something pretty bad things to get his drugs. However, and this is the inspring bit, he overcame his addiction to heroin to become a peot, singer, and speaker(mostly to kids about drugs). He went a poor drug addicted boy in New York to an outstanding man who goes on to become very successful at displaying his artistic talent. Anyway!
