Non-stop Bowie in a pub sounds like an excellent plan. Please post on here if you know of a pub doing that.

@Soul boy: If you can't understand why people would be upset over the loss of a stranger whose art has permeated their entire lives, you have no soul.

@ harold. It's nothing to do with that you idiot. I see all this fawning, wailing and ott tributes to the guy as if he was the second messiah. He was an ok musician but has done little of note for 30 years.

sorry. i know this will upset a few people. but he was rubbish, very innovative, but as far as holding a note goes, he had a lot to learn. R.I.P though, an icon for many im sure.

Everyone has an opinion..... but in truth few need listen. The 70s were a great time........if you were there. Same for any other decade. Dont imagine in 30 years time the same will be said of today's artists, as doubt any of them will have a 30 year plus lifespan in the music industry.

Why the hell are people who DID'T appreciate Bowie posting on Bowie tribute thread?? Seriously - do you people not get how the world works?? Is sensitivity so beyond you?
On 11 Jan 2016 at 7:44pm s cowel wrote:
since when did it suddenly become a "tribute thread". the heading reads...David Bowie. NOT "David Bowie tribute". and believe it or not we as a human species are supposed to be "individual" . meaning we all have different opinions, and have the right to express and share them. even if they do not agree with yours. how do you think the world works..... is it only views the same as yours that count. do you sit at home in a padded room just in case you might hear something that differs from your view. or do we ALL have to agree that David Bowie was the messiah. i suppose that if thats the case, we must all like Justin bieber. or all go round in a bubble just in case we see or hear something we dont agree with. maybe a new thread should be started stating "David Bowie Tribute ONLY" as stated Tipex " do you people not get how the world works".

OK, SCOWL, So you fail to see the merit of someone, who most objective
people regard as a major influence in the development of rock music,
worldwide, for almost 50 years.
You may wish to intrude, with your threadbare arguments about individuality, but you really have missed the point,
in a most stratospheric way, with your insensitive remarks.

I hadn`t listened to Bowie for years . I think when he did Absolute Beginners I so hated him I couldnít be bothered any more . I think he lost it at scary Monsters at the absolute latest but that was a good run.
His song writing is unique , think of the way the bass line ascends in Life on Mars , having spent some time working that out I canít think of any other pop song that uses the effect . He likes to go from 1 to 3 major as in Space oddity or Rock and Roll suicide, distinctive . Elton John and Lionel Bart meets Mervyn Peake and Michael Moorcock , so very English . There are snatches of Dylan , Velvet Underground Broadway and Metal , for me the forays into dance were failures .
His subject was always show and wonder and emptiness , only rarely does he aim to touch the soul but , on occasion he could as in Lady Stardust .
I hope you will think this is fitting song to play him out .
