Funny, for some rather odd reason I woke up today and wanted to watch "The Hunger." Which I haven't seen in like 15 years.

apparently his band members have some sort of skeletal afflictions as they are all wearing orthopedic shoes.

The sideburns on that bass player (Trevor Bolder?) are...
Crap there aren't any words for them.

I think I found my "new look", now I just need to spend a decade cultivating it.

Great performer and writer. Wish he still performed on a regular basis.

David F'ing Bowie. And Ronson. That's pretty damn awesome.

Somewhere in this world there exists a photo of me and Mick Ronson. I never got a copy of it and now I am bummed.

Bowie's vocals were great, but for me it's all about Mick Ronson. Love that guy...he never got the accolades he deserved.

/RIP Ronno

Ohhhhh yeah....

She writes his name on her arms at school.

She is dying to see The Man Who Fell To Earth. Not exactly an 8y/o sort of movie.

She is a weird kid! :)

I love it - she makes fun of the kids in her class for liking Justin Beiber...and says how awesome David Bowie is.

She also loves 3 Dog Night...Joy to the World is one of her favorite songs. I used to sing it to her when she was a baby and I was trying to get her to sleep.

Influenced much by her stepdad and I? :)~

And he was damn good the one and only time I managed to see him live (with NIN of all things).

/and I'm still not sure how or why I ended up at that show
//going to shows sober really messes you up

Just saw "The Prestige" (we were bored), and the sudden realization that the old chap playing Nikolai Tesla was, in fact, David Bowie was almost withering.
 
2012-01-07 11:16:01 PM
Not bad for someone who used to keep his piss in the fridge in case evil spirits stole it.
 
2012-01-07 11:58:13 PM
I miss you Bowie! Please give us something else. Please, please, please! The world of music just isn't the same without you.

Regardless - best wishes, David. You're the best!

I'm a very casual fan, but my wife is a creepy super-fan. I've seen him maybe 6 times in the last decade or so. Interestingly, his shows have been pretty minimalist. At this point, he doesn't need to prove anything, and isn't interested in trying. Of course, I've only seen him in fairly small venues. He does have a certain confidence that comes across, and his voice is still very strong and smooth...at least it was last time I saw him.
 
2012-01-08 12:58:49 AM
Saw him in '83 at the Toronto Ex. Best concert ever! Carol Pope and Rough Trade opened for him. A very trippy night.
 
2012-01-08 07:13:07 AM
I love love love Bowie. I saw him live about 10 years ago and he was fantastic.

That...makes me feel old.

Do you have one really funky sequined space suit, Bowie
Or do you have several ch-changes?

I'm still pretending it's 1973 (I was only 2 but David was HOT). He was AWESOME early 70's. Anything in or around the whole Mick dancing in the street era I want to forget.
