Wow shocking and sad.
Heard the news when I was in the car driving in this morning.

RIP Mr. Jones.

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

This hurts. Bowie's music means a lot to me. Its weirdness but consistent brilliance was especially important to me when I was discovering myself as a teenager, second only to that of U2. He shall be missed. But he also went out on a really high note. I just wish I could have seen him live.

Look up here, I'm in Heaven
I've got scars that can't be seen
I've got drama, can't be stolen
Everybody knows me now

Look up here, man, I'm in danger
I've got nothing left to lose
I'm so high, it makes my brain whirl
Dropped my cell phone down below
Ain't that just like me?

By the time I got to New York
I was living like a king
Then I used up all my money
I was looking for your ass

This way or no way
You know I'll be free
Just like that bluebird
Now, ain't that just like me?

Oh, I'll be free
Just like that bluebird
Oh, I'll be free
Ain't that just like me?

And of course when this kind of news happens, we get "journalists" who know little about the subject writing articles like this one:

David Bowie Dies at Age 69 After Battling Cancer

which includes nuggets of info like:

Quote:
He formed the quartet Tin Machine (his brother Tony played drums), but the band didn’t garner much critical acclaim or commercial gain with two albums.
Quote:
Bowie also produced albums for, among others, Lou Reed, The Stooges and Moot the Hoople, for which he wrote the song “All the Young Dudes.”

This is so fucking devastating. I couldn't believe the NYT alert on my phone.

Heard this on the radio this morning and had to pull over, wishing it were some kind of joke. Just gutting. This is probably the most affected I've ever been by the death of a musician - RIP to one of the very few deserving of the term "legend."

Just finished listening to Blackstar in full.

A word of warning: it's really, really sad when I Can't Give Everything Away fades out. That's the last song he'll ever give us and it's a beauty. Perhaps it's the harmonica callback to A New Career in a New Town, but something about the song feels extremely circular and final without being an outright compilation of past glories.

I know something is very wrong
The pulse returns the prodigal sons
The blackout hearts, the flowered news
With skull designs upon my shoes

Just look at the expanse of artists claiming him as an inspiration...how many others can really lay claim to this kind of influence?

Not just musicians, but actors, politicians, & every occupation in between, there'll NEVER be another artist like him.

God damn.

Scary Monsters has been one of my 2 or 3 favorite albums for about as long as I've been a fan of music and art, and aware enough to think about those things as important to my life and identity.

Here in LA, KROQ was playing nothing but Bowie a few hours ago. Cracked Actor (!), Suffragette City, Jean Genie
