This is where I try to ruin a Guns n' Roses song. It's been one of my favorite songs since 1986. I like the way it morphs into Bowie's Heroes in my mind. Heroes has been part of my life for a long time, too, and I was lucky enough to play it in German to a puzzled crowd at the Blackfriars' Playhouse many years ago.
And I think the Dolphins in Heroes are a reference to French royalty. But that's for a longer conversation.
