@geezerette - a song for Mr Warhol in the next section tho :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/10/20 4:16pm Linda Lee:

I'm not sure anyone new to Bowie now can realize how incredibly *weird* he seemed in 72. it really was like he'd just come from another world.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/10/20 4:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Faves for me - Ziggy, Hunky Dory, and The Man Who Sold the World :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/10/20 4:17pm Linda Lee:

I mean, just.. unlike anything we'd ever seen. & it helped to be young & feeling the same way (new to the planet) to 'get it'. :-)

Absolutely - I talk about that later :-)

this has to be why Ziggy is close to our hearts mores than.. later incarnations.

That's what occurred to me when Moonage Daydream was playing: gawd, what must this have been like when it dropped in the early '70s? Must have been many a blown mind.

that's right honey! :-)
  Fri. 1/10/20 4:21pm Elizabeth:

Four years ago , two days before Bowie passed away, I went to see Tony Visconti and Woody Woodmansey perform The Man Who Sold the World on Bowies Birthday at the Highline Ballroom in NYC. Halfway through the show, Tony takes out his cell phone and calls Bowie. He holds the phone up to the audience and we all sing Happy Birthday to him, not knowing that he was so sick and only having a few days to live. Tony then told us Bowie asked if we liked his new album. We all screamed yes. That was probably Bowie's last " appearance " with the public. I am so glad I was there in addition to seeking Bowie perform in 2000, 2002, and 2003. I would have loved to see him in the 70s, but I was just too young.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/10/20 4:22pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Elizabeth - that genuinely just made me tearful <3
Avatar Fri. 1/10/20 4:22pm Mr Fab:

Amazing, Elizabeth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/10/20 4:23pm Linda Lee:

I'll never tire of saying I saw him in 74 in New York. alone. no one I knew was interested!

  Fri. 1/10/20 4:24pm RiW:

learning of Bowie's passing live on a WFMU playlist is something I'll never forget, even though I no longer remember whose show it was.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/10/20 4:24pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

We went to London the weekend after he died. Laid flowers in the Soho doorway where he shot the Ziggy cover (flowers EVERYWHERE) and then went to Brixton to the mural and joined the vigil. So many people, and so much love.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/10/20 4:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/10/20 4:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

And then a few months later went to Berlin and laid flowers at his old flat and hung out in his local where we all sang his songs. <3

that sounds really lovely, GG.
  Fri. 1/10/20 4:26pm Rob:

My family moved to Northern California in the 70s. My brother came home with a music magazine (Cream) that had run a Bowie look-alike contest. My brother noted that the 3rd place winner was from the city we just moved to. It turned out she lived 3 doors down. We became fast friends. I loved that she owned 24 pairs of platform shoes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/10/20 4:26pm Linda Lee:

fabulous.

I like the sound of her! :-)
  Fri. 1/10/20 4:26pm Elizabeth:

Georgy , I hope tearful in a good way! Two days later, after it was announced that he passed away, I cried my eyes out. @ Linda I would have loved to have seen him in 1974!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 1/10/20 4:26pm melinda:

I can see how he must have seemed downright alien in 1972.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/10/20 4:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

There has genuinely never been ANYONE like him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/10/20 4:27pm Linda Lee:

Avatar Fri. 1/10/20 4:28pm Mr Fab:

One of those Elvis-like figures with off-the-scales charisma. no wonder he took on an alien persona, too perfect for mere mortals.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/10/20 4:29pm Linda Lee:

it was also brilliant marketing!
  Fri. 1/10/20 4:29pm Elizabeth:

Georgy, that is amazing that you went to Berlin to his flat! Also to gather in London with all the fans!
Two years before he passed away, I was in London and I went to the street where the cover of Ziggy was shot also.I am so happy I got to visit there.
  Fri. 1/10/20 4:30pm RiW:

now I'm in a tire (or tyre) shop. The smell of rubber is overpowering, nauseating even. I don't know how rubber fetishists do it.

In 2021 Berlin are hopefully going to rename Hauptstrasse (where he lived) to David Bowie Strasse. :-)

the song "Heroes" is one of the Great Works of Art of the 20th century. should be on a pedestal in a museum, and stop covering it! Gawd, so many awful "Heroes" covers. Don't touch it. Don't even LOOK at it!

I think Bowie is one of those artists who can't really be covered.

I happened to be doing an overnight fill-in the night Bowie died ( think he had died late the previous afternoon but the news didn't hit the wire til after midnight. I had to scrap whatever show I had planned and did an all-Bowie show instead. Fortunately, Therese (who I was following) had already pulled all his CDs out of the library and brought them into the studio. Like you, George Girl, I focused pretty much exclusively on the early stuff (although I did dig up a performance/interview from the Dick Cavett show circa late '74 on YouTube). It was a sad show, but there was also a feeling of community as everyone commented about their feelings about him, the influence he'd had on their lives, etc.

"Heroes" along with "Rebel Rebel" are his most covered songs. "Rebel Rebel" I can see any number of raunchy rock bands having a go at it. But it takes some kind of hubris to hear "Heroes" and say, oh, yeah, i can do that.

  Fri. 1/10/20 5:15pm huomenta:

OK, I must share an embarrassing childhood memory. Back in 1983 I had just started school as a seven-year-old and in the newest issue of Suosikki (the late Finnish equivalent of Smash Hits for instance) they gave an address (probably fan club/record company) one could use to write to David Bowie. I wrote a letter full of illegible gibberish I thought was english and was prepared to send it. But: my parents refused to provide the necessary stamps. I threw a fit and marked the day in question as "Gloomy Day" in the almanac on our kitchen wall. Only after that they had to give in and the letter went on its merry way.

Honestly, I think my first awareness of "Aladdin Sane" was through Josh Pearson of Emergency Broadcast Network, and his unique interpretation/video collage based around it in "Homicidal Schizophrenic".

I lived in a horrible flat in Berlin for a short while without realising it was just a stones throw from that certain flat; never visited him though, wrong century and all.

Ah yes, "Aladdin Sane" - known as the inevitably dissapointing follow-up o Ziggy . Some classics on it tho like "Panic in Detroit.
