David Bowie 1947 - 2016


Gordon's alive!

Guys, I am bummed out.

David Bowie, one of the greatest songwriters/icons of our time has passed away. I have always loved the dude, since I got to know his music in the eighties, and later sought out to get to know his earlier stuff. His later music, from about 1990 and to the end I admit I'm not well enough into. Do love Earthling though, think I am one of maybe not that many that do.

He was criticized for "selling out" with his Let's Dance album, but I have always felt that Bowie just did whatever he wanted. When he wanted to make some money with some hits, he did just that.

What a man. He will always have my respect.

Say hello from me to the Starman in the sky, David.

Wild is the Wind was not an original song of his, but he certainly made it his own.

That is a revelation for me...never knew this.

Who was the original artist of that song..(i will google it, never mind).

Edit from Wikipedia:

Wild Is the Wind" is a song written by Dimitri Tiomkin and Ned Washington. The track was originally recorded by Johnny Mathis for the 1957 film Wild Is the Wind
