“I don’t really understand what politics are … I’m concerned with injustice … I’m not attuned to politics, I’m just attuned to people.’ He”
Peter Doggett, There's a Riot Going On

“At the height of his fame, he would reassure his audience: “You’re not alone—give me your hands” [61], and then stretch out his own emaciated arms toward them, coyly allowing the tips of his fingers to graze theirs for an instant, before he withdrew, keeping their tantalizing dream of contact alive while remaining ultimately aloof and alone.”
Peter Doggett, The Man Who Sold the World: David Bowie and the 1970s

“out…That’s why they want the Beatles to go on, so they can get all silly again. But”
Peter Doggett, You Never Give Me Your Money: The Beatles After the Breakup
