David with a young newcomer from China who admires him. He has more singers who admire him in China than anywhere it seems. I really think its inevitable that David will be replaced if not by Khalil than another newcomer who can croon r&b songs. He is older & dun think he wanna continue writing addictive music for teens anymore. If Free is any indication, then hopefully his new album will be more matured, masculine & unrestrained by musical trends. Listening to Free, I can hear the loneliness, pain, yearning & fear of an artist. Probably he wrote it while working on his movie script or album. There is nothing more lonely than an artist working on his creation cos there is nobody he can ask if he is doing it rite. Especially the last few notes on his guitar as if he didn't know how or when to end the song. It speaks of the pain of indecision in one's life. To be or not to be? But the thing abt David is his self-preservation cos I think, like most artists, he can be prone to depression. Black Tangerine could be his ode to depression. Yet he has the strength of character to carry on. I respect him for that. Perhaps I am bit down reading abt the sudden death of Health Ledger. What a sad way to go - alone, surrounded by sleeping pills. RIP Health.
