    to sweep the streets with old fashioned twiggy brooms and cute little motorised carts We were supremely lucky according to our friends to enjoy a rare run of blue skies and warm spring weather for our sightseeing The first time I d seen Beijing was on a trip with my parents in the 1970s where everything was Mao suits and bicycles and not a grubby thought to be had Now everyone has pollution gauge apps on their smartphones and shops at every familiar western outlet from Gucci to H M We were as fascinated by watching ordinary Chinese at play as they were by my lovely companion Paul Anderson The young people like their fashion and electronic kit The elderly marvelled at the inner sanctum of imperial life that had always been denied them despite being built on the backs of their ancestors They were all eager to learn about their own history and grab a little piece of it on their smartphones as was I watch the scrum around the throne pavilion in the video We are indeed all more alike than different The fact that the Chinese have any access at all to this beautifully preserved city now known as the Palace Museum is fortunate considering the looting and destruction perpetrated by both the Kuomintang and the Japanese during the first half of the previous century When I saw it in the 1970s the painted woodwork was faded with many of the tiles broken and fallen and there were few tourists It s undergone a transformation as stunning as the Chinese economy We arrived earlyish at around 10 30am and the place was already thronging The long queues through the airport style security outside Tiananmen Gate were packed into narrow avenues protecting us from terrorist attacks such as the one a couple of years ago that killed several tourists when a jeep ploughed into the crowd and exploded in a fireball but they got us through quickly enough By 4 30pm when the kicking out music was played over the loudspeakers we d barely seen a quarter of it You can sense the ghosts of residents past and trace the route taken by emperors borne in palanquins by eunuchs over magnificent stone carvings Imagine the imperial writhings on the silk beds in the private quarters hear the pillow talk the intrigue What must the palace politics have been like What must it have been like to be a minion A concubine Trapped never seeing the world outside these dusty red walls for an entire lifetime It must have felt eternal as if it would continue for another five hundred years at least But nothing lasts forever especially if rulers grow complacent and forget the interests of the wider population That s a lesson we re learning in the West a lesson that knows no national boundaries The first movie I stuck on the telly when I returned home The Last Emperor natch shot in the Forbidden City itself

  • FAREWELL David Bowie from a Bowie fan: RIP
    the tabloids confirming to us that he represented something a world apart from their rigidly oppressive minds At Hammersmith we buzzed with anticipation Someone read out a piece in the NME about David announcing he was retiring shock horror the first time I ever heard the name of the journalist Charles Shaar Murray Quick there might not be enough of him to go round But thankfully there was We all dressed up There were all sorts of variations on David s iconic haircut and Angie Bowie s platinum white do Angie was Bowie royalty being married to him and very much part of his creative team much loved by the fans I still vividly recall her in a red and white striped top and white pants walking from limo to the glass doors while we squealed with excitement and craned to get a peek The Mainman crew Warhol s Cherry Vanilla and Leee Black Childers et al were all there Lulu turned up Wow I mean she was a mainstream entertainer and even she was entranced by the outsider transitioning to insider and cultural icon Of the fans I made close friends with Dena on whom I developed a crush and her mate John Shipcott who would babysit Zowie Duncan Jones and thrill us with tales of hanging up David s wonderful costumes and glory of glories show us photos of the house interior on pain of death if we told anyone And Debbie who had the best Angie haircut thanks to an indulgent mum I remember a guy called Henry who was a dead ringer in his carroty spiked hair and Ziggy flash It was all sparkle and glitter lurex and spangles For the final three gigs at the Hammersmith Odeon I sprayed my green peplumed leather jacket silver the one I wore to school instead of the requisite green serge blazer and wore it with white trousers My mother allowed me to wreck our beautiful Chinese parasol that smelt strongly of mothballs by gluing on big silver letters that spelt David is my Nirvana cause I d just learnt what Nirvana meant and felt this was an appropriate time to use it When I opened it in the front row I was rewarded with a kiss blown directly at me I still recall the sensation of my heart thumping through my chest tears wellng and my spirit soaring out of the top of my head David had NOTICED me Buying front row tickets was a bit of a waste for as soon as the lights went down and Wendy Carlos s Ode to Joy from Stanley Kubrick s movie of Clockwork Orange struck up with its bom bom bom bom everyone rushed the stage anyway This was quite dangerous because the orchestra pit between us and beloved David was guarded by an iron rail that came up to mid thigh way below your centre of gravity Your legs were seriously in danger of being broken in the crush
