Yes. Lady Gaga and Nile Rodgers will be featured in a Bowie tribute on the Grammys.

Nile, of course. I mean he plays songs he produced in his own Chic shows, right?

Yeah, I saw Chic open for Duran Duran last summer, and half his set was non-Chic stuff he'd produced. Let's Dance was a highlight of their set for sure.

This is going to be awesome. Really looking forward to it.

It's too bad that i see tons of bashing of choice of Lady Gaga online.

 
i secretly wished that Iggy Pop were to to this kind of thing in some shape of form.

I can't fucking stand people like that. So many people are prejudiced against any music made after the late 80s or early 90s. I spent two days arguing about it on Facebook the other day. Lady Gaga will perform a stunning tribute but these people won't acknowledge it because she's a modern pop star.

unrelated to Bowie, but if Lady gaga can pull this off, then I guess she can sing Bowie songs

I love St Vincent as much as the next person but why? Lady Gaga has amazing pipes and has clearly loved and been influenced by Bowie for a long time. I can't wait to see what she does.

Yeah, Gaga has the theatricality and gravitas to give proper justice to Bowie's music. Plus, she can really sing. I'm sure she'll do well by him.

internet mockery is infinite. I guess people don't know how to tolerate other people's opinions.

This other music forum I post at, full of baby boomer audiophiles, is pretty savage when it comes to new artists.

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

It occurred to me that other than a few YouTube videos, I had never heard Bowie in a full concert. So I corrected this today and listened to the Reality Tour live album. And oh wow, he is fantastic live throughout the whole thing (I assume it's compiled from several shows). He sounds so incredibly fresh. I wish I had seen him during that tour. That will remain one of the biggest unfulfilled bucket list acts (I'm happy I saw Paul a few years ago).

Anyways, Rebel Rebel sounded epic live. Be My Wife was everything I hoped it would be. Ashes to Ashes and The Man Who Sold The World were equally great. Of the warhorses, Heroes and Changes were probably my favorite. It's a fun concert, so I recommend it for those who, like me, didn't hear his love show.

Agreed. His final tour came just around the time that I finally started going to shows, so I never got the chance to see him either.

Ashes to Ashes really seemed like it was a highlight from that era, for sure.
