When I saw her picture, it was amazing as I thought she looked so much like me. I had to write and tell her I thought we were twins separated at birth ! ( I flattered myself ! ) It did turn out that we were the same age, even though the likeness I believe comes from some common ethereal interest more so than our physical similarities. Over the last year we have discovered a common thread and a kindred spirit that reaches across the pond and have formed a fun and enjoyable friendship.
Later, Barbara worked for David Bowie, another fabulously talented and legendary star.
Rolling Stone magazine ranked David Bowie 39th on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time .
The years Barbara spent with these talented people during the height of fashion and the English Invasion must of been so memoriable. I would of loved to have witnessed the goings on at King's Road in London in the late 1960's and early 70's !
