The news that legendary artist and music innovator David Bowie passed away on Jan 10th 2016 was a shock to the world and his passing has left a creative void in the universe that has been felt by all who adored his talent, uncompromising creative vision and prolific creative output. As a way to cope with the loss Brian has recorded an acoustic tribute version of Bowie's song "Five Years" and posted it to youtube.
Soon after the organizer of "LIFE ON MARS: An East Bay tribute to the Art and Music of David Bowie" contacted BT to perform the tribute song live on Sat, Feb 13th at The Marsh Cabaret Bar as part of the Bowie tribute show in Berkeley. BT will be joined by Matt Gretter on drums for this one off performance.
