I saw Bowie 4 times over the last 5 years, and he and his band were terrific! The Reality tour was great and here is a terrific DVD of it that was filmed in Ireland for those who missed it. Put it under the tree for yourself!
I have to say I miss him very much. He always seemed to come out with a new album in between waiting for a U2 tour, so it was great! Hopefully, we'll see him again real soon.

When he sings, he uses different accents according to the character he's portraying.

Has anyone seen s film called Christiane F which is based on a true story of a 13 year old German girl who becomes addicted to heroin and is forced into prostitution in order to fund her habit? It's in English subtitles and it is as upsetting as it sounds. It's soundtrack is full of Bowie's songs including a version of Hero's where he sings in English, German then French.

He's definetely an artist whose material that I need to discover a wider basses other then what you find on his greatest hits. What do you make of the stuff he records nowadays?

Today was Bowie's birthday.

Do you have one really funky sequined space suit, Bowie?
Or do you have several ch-ch-ch-ch- changes?

I listened to Low today, so that's a nice coincidence.

Happy birthday, Bowie. Smoke some astroturf on me.

I watched the Reality DVD... and it kinda sucked, it'd make me consider going to see him. Life on Mars was almost acapella, Heroes turned kinda reggae, Loving the Alien didn't even sound the same.

I saw him on the Reality Tour and I don't really remember Heroes sounding reggae. I remember him impersonating a dolphin during it, though.

Probably not the word, it was a while ago, I just remember it not sounding anything like the original.

He does have a habit of doing everything almost completely different every time he tours....it can be hit and miss.

The Reality Tour DVD cut of "Heroes" is one of the most mindblowingly awesome things I've ever seen on a concert film. I don't know how you could say it was reggae though.

Just wanted to bump this too say how I thought it was awesome that after months of driving lessons, stressing, frustration, lifts, argument, missing out, public transport and shitloads of money, I finally got my license and the first song that played was Look Back in Anger, right on the chorus:

I've been waiting so long
I've been waiting so long
Look back in aaaaangger

Summed it up pretty well
