Be prepared for David Bowie tribute albums, performances and concerts to come from all over in the next several months. Popular acts are already starting to pay tribute to the late legend creatively in the wake of his passing, and that includes one of D-FW's biggest legacy bands.
Earlier this afternoon Fort Worth's beloved Toadies put forth a missive on social media regarding their feelings about music's giant loss. "I'm pissed off. And this sucks," says lead singer Vaden Todd Lewis in the post. But these guys aren't just commiserating. They're sharing a live version of Bowie's classic, "Heroes," that they recorded at the Luckenbach Dance Hall back in October. Only when hearing of Bowie's passing did the band decide to dust off the recording, get it mixed and release it to fans.
It's a straightforward, reverent version of the '77 tune, and it begins with Lewis asking the crowd, "You guys like David Bowie?" I think we all know the answer.
And hey, if you happen to download the cover tune, Lewis and company are asking you to consider donating to the American Cancer Society at the same time.
