Queensryche's Michael Wilton about David Bowie: "His music got me through torment and problems in youth"


Queensryche guitarist Michael Wilton talked with Journal Star about David Bowie's death. You can read some excerpts below.


He said: "Oh, man, [Bowie] was a huge, huge influence on me. I had a wide palate of music that I grew up listening to, and he was part of my sonic landscape. And to tell you the truth, [the news of his death] still hasn't hit me yet and I don't know when it's going to hit me. His music got me through torment and problems in youth and days gone by. It's such a sad loss. A guy that most everyone lived up to. He was the man."
