A MOTHER is outraged that her son – her own flesh and blood – did nothing to inform her about the 2016 death of David Bowie despite his being fully aware.
Carolyn Ryan, aged 67, expects son Joseph to keep her up to date with this kind of thing but apparently he has had better things to talk about for the last eight years.
She said: “What’s this in the paper? David Bowie? Dead? And this is how I’m finding out?
“You used to have his records. When were you thinking of getting round to telling me about this? I get an hour of your trellis coming down in the wind but not a word about the chameleon of rock, it said he was, having passed on?
“Who knows how I could have embarrassed myself? Especially as you know I mix him up with Alvin Stardust. What if I’d said something when I was at the hairdressers? 36 hours in labour and this is the thanks I get.”
Joseph Ryan, aged 42, said: “This is part of my role description as son now? Since f**king when?”
“And it’s not like I was a massive fan. I mean I bought Blackstar on vinyl like everyone else but I can’t say I ever listen to it.”
