Just came in here to post that. Even greater than leaving us with Blackstar, obviously.


It's better when you read "It's not a very good song, is it?" aloud in his voice.

I wonder why they wanted to make their humiliation public. Maybe they were so excited that he dignified their request with an actual response it didn't matter.

Yeah kind of strange they'd admit he thought their song sucked. Maybe Champion doesn't like Martin's songwriting either and this is the beginning of the end.

Love Coldplay, but this has made me very very happy.

Dude, have you SEEN Chris Martin? The bloke is a walking personification of humiliation.

More reflective of the snobbish company you keep, I'd say

I can hear him saying it, and it makes me SO happy.

David Bowie Scores First Top 40 Hot 100 Single Since 1987 | Billboard

This is incredibly surprising and pleasing news. I can't think of any song like Lazarus being in the Billboard Top 40 in my lifetime.

Haven't posted in here in a while but having read through all the pages since his death, I thought I'd like to post my 15 most recently played since just over a week ago. I was surprised at how much the news hit me, and I spent the week going over a lot of his albums again, and visiting Heddon St, Brixton and Beckenham etc. Such sad times, but what a wonderful back catalogue to have for us to enjoy and hopefully future generations too!

Good to see some love for Watch That Man and Lady Stardust, two of his most underrated tracks

The guitars on Watch that Man are awesome. They rip so hard. Ken Scott hates the production on that track - he doesn't like how far the vocals are buried - but I like it. The guitars on Aladdin Sane in general are amazing.

Speaking of guitars, I really love how Bowie played everything on Diamond Dogs save for one track (1984). Considering it's an album with Rebel Rebel on it that's pretty impressive.

Having said that, the guitar work on the whole Man Who Sold The World album is just killer. Heavy, heavy stuff on there. In accordance with my blasphemous preference of Lodger over Low, I think I like the like the TMWSTW more than Ziggy Stardust.

I don't necessarily agree with that latter opinion, but I cosign any and all Man Who Sold the World praise. That album is a blast.
