    After coming to America, the singer found himself living in Los Angeles at 28-years-old. "Drugs had taken my life away from me," Bowie says, "I felt as though I would probably die and it was going to be all over." Bowie credits his assistant, Coco, for getting him out of that life. "Best advice, which I wish I had known at 18? Don't do drugs."

    FALLON AS T BOWIE If this were about Mohammed, there would be car bombs and heads coming off. Fallon would have to go in hiding like Salman Rushdie. As a Catholic, I am not threatened and can see the humor. It may well be profane. Maybe Fallon will have to answer someday.

    BISBEE - Johnny Lee Williams, who is accused in a Texas abduction case, waived the formal extradition procedure Friday with an understanding that local attempted armed robbery charges will be dropped. A copy of the Texas warrant was present in Cochise County Superior Court Presiding Judge Tom Collins' Division 1 courtroom Friday at the 2:30 p.m. hearing. The warrant "is typically sufficient for purposes of waiving extradition," said Teri Goral, Williams county-appointed legal counsel. Williams' waiver of extradition stops the formal extradition procedure by the governor's offices in Texas and Arizona. Cochise County Spokeswoman Carol Capas said Williams would probably...

    Remember the real Alamo Posted: April 8, 2004 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2004 "Remember the Alamo," was an American battle cry for generations. Now Disney is trying to get Americans to forget the real history of heroic fight. Disney's remake of "The Alamo" will be released tomorrow in theaters nationwide. Judging from a review of the script, the film will be a disgraceful deconstruction of Davy Crockett, Sam Houston, Jim Bowie and other American heroes who "died with their boots on." "The movie reads more like a Disney fairy tale and promotes a politically correct revisionist agenda aimed at...

    LONDON (AP) - Veteran rock star David Bowie said on Friday he would never live in Britain again because its news media are so obsessed with celebrities.

"The pure inconvenience of having a camera lens stuck in either my face or my wife and child's face every morning, I think would certainly be a deterrent to me wanting to come back to live here on a permanent basis," he told...
