Rick Wakeman Regretting ditching David Bowie For Another Group

Rick Wakeman feels regret that he ditch the late David Bowie for the group Yes. The sixty-six-year-old English keyboardist/songwriter now faces some regrets following the recent death of Bowie for not joining Spiders from Mars. There were a number of early tracks which include ‘Life On Mars’, ‘Changes’ and ‘Oh! You Pretty Things’ in which he was a session player on, however in 1971 he turned down the chance to be part of his backing band, heading over to the English rock band Yes because he felt he would be able to express his own musical style better with the prog group. But now as he takes a look back at the decision he made,

he always wonders how his career would have turned out if he had continued working with Bowie.

Asked if he had any regrets about not joining the Spiders from Mars, he said: “I probably did in some respects, I was asked to join Yes and Spiders from Mars with Mick Ronson and David on the same day and I talked to David and the problem was that if I joined Spiders from Mars, yes I would be playing all of David’s music which I loved dearly and working with David, who was the best person I ever worked with, but if you’re part of a band you get a chance to actually contribute a lot more of your own style and what you want to do.

“And I spoke with David about it and he said, ‘Absolutely that’s the right decision’… but I often wonder what might have been.”

Also, he spoke about Bowie, who died from Cancer on Sunday, saying

he was a “musical genius” who not only “changed” his life, but the landscape of music, fashion and art.

Speaking to Piers Morgan on ITV’s ‘Good Morning Britain, he said of Bowie:

“Yes I would [call him a genius], but it is a word that’s bandied around a lot and it is misused a lot.

“David was unbelievable, he had great musicality. You can quite honestly say he changed fashion, he changed art, he changed musical styles and he certainly changed my life.”

as I’m sure you can imagine I’m gutted hearing of David’s passing. He was the biggest influence & encouragement I could ever have wished for

Yolanda Foster Ex-Husband Scan Advice Saved Her Life

Yolanda Foster talks how her ex-husband had saved her life. She is one of the stars of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and she has opened up about how her former spouse David was there for her for the past year, saying she gave him many thanks for helping her go to a scan, revealing one of her breast implants had moved. Raised by a single mom, she wrote in her words,

“After being properly diagnosed three years ago, I followed strict doctor’s orders 24/7 but made very slow progress as we slowly uncovered the mystery of my failing health.

“Last June, David woke up one morning and said, ‘We are not doing any more treatments until you get a full body scan.’ That scan probably saved my life, as doctors found free-floating silicone under my left arm pit, under my right clavicle bone, and under my rib cage.”

At present, she is on a holiday with her children, Gigi, Bella and Anwar Hadid.

In her column for BravoTV.com, she added:

“I’m in the snow with my children. We had a beautiful, quiet, no gifting, no stress Christmas; we cooked, ate too much, and played lots of games. Our family tradition of handwritten letters to each other is the one thing I keep close to my heart as there is no greater gift than feeling appreciated by your loved ones.

“Even though it’s freezing cold, it feels good to be close to nature and the infectious energy that comes with having everyone together under one roof–keeping up is worth the fight. I want to be as present as I can be right here, right now, as I know these are precious moments as I watch my kids grow. The holidays come and go so quickly – this break from my disciplined routine is a treat.”

More on the popular star, she had Lyme disease,l she lost her ability to read, write, or even watch TV.
