I might be twisted out of my mind but I'm pretty sure one of those pictures deep posted is Tom Waits and not David Bowie.

One of them certainly look less like David Bowie than the others.

While we were doing the Bowie survivor (thank God we finished that!) I listened to all of his albums. Some of them for the first and, thusfar, only time. I know I wrote a lot of first impression posts back then, I'll have to go dig them up for Earthling and Outside.

I've never been able to get into the Berlin albums.

I love love LOVE the song Heroes (easily my all-time favorite Bowie song), but, at the risk of inciting the wrath of BoMac, I just don't get it.

Yeah, the box in the first pic had "Waits" written on it though.

you are out of your mind, but yes that is Tom Waits as I wrote I put a bunch of stuff from the 70s and 80s in my attic,

the first picture of the box has Bowie, Waits, and Stones written on it. These are great pictures from that era, in small venues in the L A market I attended. Most of the pictures were taken by legit photographers. I did take the Waits pictures. I got 6-7 boxes of this stuff, since this sad event prompted me to get some down I should probably get the rest and put them on eBay or Craigslist or just donate them to intermediate assholes,

along with Bowie, there are Stones, Springsteen with Clarence, LZ, and more I can not recall right now. My best memories go back to those shows and venues, as they are starting to fade away these days.




edit to add: David gets full credit for being one of our best contributors to this site

Believe it or not Bowie took pictures with his longtime photographer on Friday, 2 days before his death.

This one has been released, not sure his many others there are:






You have to love this, laughing in the face of death.

That's just plain nuts right there. If there is a model for dying with peace and dignity, this man is it.

One I've seen posted a lot today is him giving a salute...he seems to be on the roof of a tall building and it looks cold out. Is that a really recent one?

I literally changed my avatar to that picture while you were typing that.
