Elton John's THE KING MUST DIE is about Shakespeare and  Hamlet.  and I
have vivid memories of David Bowie singing to Yorrick's skull when he
did CRACKED ACTOR on the DIAMOND DOGS tour.

Still wearing platform shoes,

Many Thanks!! to all of you who contributed so enthusiastically to the
list of Shakespearean references in modern music.  I have forwarded your
thoughts to Angela Norris, a high school student in Golden, Colorado who
wrote us a letter and who, I am sure, will be quite overwhelmed by the
response!
