Totally gobsmacked by this mornings news. I thought Bowie would be around forever, forever changing styles and pushing new boundaries. Only last night I ordered Blackstar.
Back at school when we were 14 years old and getting into serious music we all had our favourites, but whether it was Tamla, Rock, Prog, Soul, Blues, American bands, Singers, or Guitarists, but the one artist who seemed to transcend it all and appeal to all, was Bowie.
I wouldn't be surprised if pretty much everyone in my year at school, boys and girls and anyone inbetween, had copies of 'The man who sold the world' or 'Hunky Dory' and they most definitely had 'Ziggy'. I remember avidly buying Bowie's work from The Man Who Sold The World' onwards only lapsing at Tin Machine.
My big Bowie regret was giving up the opportunity to see the last 'Ziggy' show at Hammersmith. I got to see him live a few times though including Live Aid and the Serious Moonlight tour and that was pretty special.
I will always remember seeing him for the first time as Ziggy on TotP and my dad's reaction.
Hard to pick a favourite, but for me 'Queen Bitch' from The Old Grey Whistle Test show sticks in mind for me.
But he had a Tull connection and this is it - Steeleye Span with Bowie on 'To know him is to love him' from 'Now we are six' produced by Ian Anderson
RIP Bowie, you gave us a lot, including a few cool haircuts!
Quizz Kid: Well, we tried to spread the love and the word, build bridges, but when you get booted and blocked by twats for no reason it's a bit like the trash taking itself out for collection, good riddance to bad rubbish.
