I hadn't watched the video for Lazarus until now.

It's disturbingly topical from a visual standpoint, not by accident I imagine. Frightening and yet beautiful. And the final shot of him backing into the wardrobe is just such a Bowie farewell.

What a magician.

The name of the day he died on:


"Sunday"

Nothing remains
We could run
when the rain slows
Look for the cars or signs of life
Where the heat goes
Look for the drifters
We should crawl under the bracken
Look for the shafts of light on the road
Where the heat goes

Everything has changed
For in truth, it's the beginning of nothing
And nothing has changed
Everything has changed
For in truth, it's the beginning of an end
And nothing has changed
And everything has changed

In your fear
Of what we have become
Take to the fire
Now we must burn
All that we are
Rise together
Through these clouds
As on wings

In your fear, seek only peace
In you fear, seek only love
In your fear, seek only peace
In you fear, seek only love
In your fear, in your fear
As on wings
This is the trip
And this is the business we take
This is our number
All my trials, Lord
Will be remembered
Everything has changed

R.I.P. DAVID BOWIE, the greatest rock star of all time.

Just listening to Lazarus, over & over the lyrics are so heartbreakingly poignant, I just can't believe this news, as I sit here posting this thread, a 51 year old man, with a beautiful wife & 3 wonderful kids I have tears streaming down my face at the passing of a man I never met, yet feel I've lost a huge part of my life, such has been the impact of this man & his body of work over the years on my life, God bless you David, sincere thanks for everything you gave to the world!

David Bowie: The next thread and the next thread...

I feel that, Jim. Had to go for a walk and have a good cry. Hopefully I'll be able to appreciate the gift he left to us in the stark light of really soon enough. Apparently it makes for an even stranger, more engaging listen than it already was.

What a horrible 18 months this must have been for Bowie, but what exit on the public stage. Always the showman.

That's a good list of bands, I got most of that vynal too, but I got it in the 70s and 80s, that glam rock was something great live add T Rex to the list there are a few others too.

What a beautifully diverse and massive catalogue he has gifted us all, almost literally right up until the day he died.

I downloaded Blackstar just yesterday

Exactly.

One of the few left today who was indisputably a 'legend' in the industry. RIP Mr. Bowie.

I'm not either, but I literally just got up and saw the news alert on my phone, and couldn't believe it. Very sad.

Just woke up to this news, too.

Very sad. I had no idea he was ill.

If you're sad today, just remember the world is over 4 billion years old and you somehow managed to exist at the same time as David Bowie.

Something happened on the day he died
Spirit rose a metre and stepped aside
Somebody else took his place, and bravely cried
I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar


I'm gutted.
