During the David Bowie birthday celebration at Chop Suey on Jan. 8, Ryan Weadon performed “Sunday” and “Heroes” as the Thin White Duke. Two days later, Bowie left the world. “For two weeks leading up to the show I was in his head, watching videos, singing his songs, getting ready for this night. And it happened and it was this big release,” Weadon said a week later. “Sunday night I heard the news and it hurt, but it was really Monday morning when I started reading about it. I was bawling at my computer all day.”
