Fuck me.

indeed. hadn't listened to him all that much in recent times (outside of the station to station to scary monsters stretch) but cannot deny how indelible a mark he made on my own listening preferences and indeed foundational understandings of music/sound. can honestly say that without him I likely wouldn't have been exposed to so much of what I now hold dear which in the popular/wider/'mainstream' consciousness inarguably qualifies bowie as an immeasurable legend.

i got home after a night shift, just found out, can't believe it. i didn't know he had a cancer. couple of weeks I saw his new video, thinking, new album, he keeps going..legend..

R.I.P. Cancer was suprise to me too. Will put Man Who Sold the World on today.

I mean listening to something purportedly contemporaneous to the fucking rolling stones at age 9 and hearing this kind of stuff is so remarkable, that he was able to achieve this level of success while being an entirely uncompromising figure and bringing incredibly wild approaches to the general populace as he did, mother of christ. one of the first times I heard music which resonated with how I felt, as if someone was making sound from the same perspective as myself.

Black Star (full album)

He was the first take the Bowie brand public on the stock exchange.

Fuck, fuck, fuck- I just read about this literally two minutes ago. I've been out covering a story all morning and didn't get a chance to check in on any news until just now.

I have no time to even read an article, but I'm here to say this is some BULLSHIT!

RIP David Bowie. You beautiful, wonderful, mad son of a bitch. We love you.

Antagon 01.11.2016 10:59 AM

Some bullshit indeed. Fare thee well...

:(

I listened to Soul Love and Be My Wife on the train this morning upon reading the news and nearly teared up.

A legend who made a huge impact on my life and also influenced a lot of my current favorite artists.

Blackstar is an excellent album, he left us with a bang. RIP.

Damn....totally didn't expect this. I didn't even know he even had cancer.

It was a secret.

Nor did I.

It makes that 2012 Flaming Lips track "Is David Bowie Dying?" sound even more unnerving in retrospect. Maybe it's been going on a while and some people knew?

neither did Brian Eno......

 



The cassette was my first ever Bowie purchase. From the opening beats of, "Five Years," this 7th grader was hooked!

The ticket was from the only time I saw Bowie in concert......Nine Inch Nails and David Bowie on Friday the 13th, the perfect trifecta!

Hmm. I saw NIN and Bowie back in the day too. Can't recall if it was on a Friday. Also the only time I saw the Duke live, which almost makes me feel now that I never got the experience of seeing Bowie totally on his own.

Sigh.

Mortte Jousimo 01.12.2016 12:24 AM

I was going to listen Man Who sold, but instead I put Scary Monsters. Its my favourite after Ziggy Stardust-album, always hit me much more than for example Low, Heroes or Lodger. And the reason is not just Ashes to Ashes which I think is one of the best Bowie songs, the whole album is just so amazing!

I am glad I saw him alive. It was after his Earthling-album. One of the best moments was when he performed Quicksand, also one of my favourite songs.

My top5 Bowie albums in order:
1. the Man Who sold the World
2. Hunky Dory
3. Rise & Fall of Ziggy Stardust
4. Scary Monsters
5. Space Oddity (used be just David Bowie at first).
