Looking for a Bowie quote from the memorial thread January 15, 2016 11:59 AM   Subscribe

Someone had posted a link to an interview with Bowie in the massive Bowie thread, and had selected a pullquote in which he reflected on aging. (The specific quote was about how aging helps you strip away parts of you and shows you who you really are.) I've searched the thread for "aging" and "ageing" and haven't turned up anything. Does anyone remember this quote, and can you give me the link? Thanks!

Not sure if it was mentioned in the thread, but here's a related quote: “I’m very at ease, and I like it. I never thought I would be such a family-oriented guy; I didn’t think that was part of my makeup. But somebody said that as you get older you become the person you always should have been, and I feel that’s happening to me. I’m rather surprised at who I am, because I’m actually like my dad.”

That's the quote, exactly. Thank you.
