one of my favorite artists ever. it's crazy how divere his discography is....truly an artist who knew how to transcend genres. Ziggy Stardust is my favorite album but Young Americans is a close second. He's a damn good actor to boot
. Definitely appreciated.
Dude made a CHILDREN'S book out of space oddity. There's some legal red tape business going on right now but you can read it here
David Bowie is def appreciated over here...Dude has reinvented himself so many times & influenced so many bands/artists. Think the Let's Dance release is underappreciated (produced non other than by Niles Rodgers). Love the Stevie Ray Vaughn guitar playing on that album...Bowie always had great guitar players in his various incarnations.
BTW, you wondered about Bowie not getting a lot of love earlier...Not sure that alot of NTers listen to anything outside of Little Wayne, Drake, Young Jeezy...Aside from some of the 90's hip hop threads I see from time to time, some of these young hoppers think old school is Jay Z or Oasis...
Legit bummed about this. Dude was so great. Loved all his music. Guy really loved all his music and hated everything about the business part of it. Guy always did what he wanted. We were blessed to have been given The Next Day and Blackstar.
