I have dear friends that were ripped apart yesterday when David Bowie died.
I have to admit I was only a fan in passing. But this video was on my Facebook feed last night, shared by Adrian Belew, the lead guitarist on the song.
Before seeing this live version of Heroes, I never knew the instrument running throughout was a guitar and not a synthesizer. I don't know why it means so much more knowing it's a guy playing guitar instead of someone with one finger on a keyboard, but it does.
I first heard this song while looking for hero-themed songs for our Transformation conference.
I was mesmerized the first time. And I'm even more mesmerized by this live version of "Heroes."
Do yourself a favor and watch the video.
This song could loop forever and ever, and it would be just fine as I think about what any of us could be . . . just for one day.
