For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

I saw someone on social media call David Bowie "Sir David Bowie" and that seemed really out of place for some reason. Later, I saw this article here about how Bowie refused being knighted. This guy was really in a league of his own for saying no to the Queen.

To really stop and think on how he orchestrated Blackstar, knowing that it was going to pretty much be his last statement to the world(and to a lot of his personal friends) ? disbelief cry clapping rose



I mean has any artist ever left such a moving statement(knowing that they were going to die), as Lazarus(and Blackstar) ?




As people are now saying, it all makes sense now that he's gone. But to think that he had enough emotional strength to do what he did? disbelief At this moment i cannot wrap my head around that(or most of this tragedy).




Last night i brought Blackstar, and put it on my bedtime playlist, but i had to turn it off. I only got through one song(Tis A Pity), before it became too overwhelming. Today i did a quick glance at it, and David Bowie left something amazing. Blackstar only has 7 songs on it, but those 7 songs are amazingly moving. Both in terms of music and in lyrics.... damn. sad

Rest in Peace Bettie Boo. See u soon.

His latest video - "Lazarus" , it was if he wanted the world to see this video as his final statement- mad, dark, poignant - the ultimate artist to the last. I dare anyone to see it and not be moved.

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

This is truly tragic news. A monumental loss. He was always beyond generous to me. Within our industry he was definitely the most important artist this country has ever produced.

I can't speak for others, but personally I'm not defending Prince's silence. My perspective is I don't give a fuck about anyone's silence, celebrity or not. I'd rather focus on thinking about what Bowie's music means to me, and admiring the kind words of those who have chosen to say something. I'm not interested in people's silence.

People talking about Prince's reaction to David Bowie's death on this site reminds me of the famous (if possibly mythical Scottish headline,

"North-east man lost at sea. 1,500 perish in Titanic disaster."

"Prince fails to tweet on headline news. David Bowie dies".

I mean, come on, Prince doesn't need to be in this discussion.

Remembering David Bowie

In the "Remembering David Bowie piece there's an error:

"Bowie had a heart scare while on tour to support his 2013 album Reality..."

That should be corrected to 2003.


I know, I let the editor know but it has yet to be corrected.

Bowie meet supermodel Iman in 1990. They married two years later.

Iman: “I was not ready for a relationship. Definitely, I didn't want to get into a relationship with somebody like him.

“But as I always said: I fell in love with David Jones. I did not fall in love with David Bowie. Bowie is just a persona. He's a singer, an entertainer. David Jones is a man I met.”

One thing I really respect about David Bowie is that he had genuine appreciation and respect for black artists. Unlike other artists who shall not be mentioned, he wasn't being a "copycat" of the sound. It's hard to really distinguish this but I think most of you can understand the point I'm making. Some acts just copy others and then pretend it was theirs all along. David Bowie was never like that. I just love his appearance on Soul Train. Can someone tell me if his 1975 appearance was his only one or did he appear again in the 80s? Anyway, his legacy will live for generations!

Gene Simmons on David Bowie: "He Was Much Braver than We Are"
January 12



KISS singer/bassist Gene Simmons is just one of the many artists from across the musical spectrum that have been singing the praises of David Bowie since the sad news broke of the groundbreaking artist's death from cancer on Sunday.

Simmons says that although Bowie and KISS may not have had a lot in common musically, the British rocker taught his band a lot about artistic integrity and courage. "He's a visionary," Gene tells ABC Radio.

"And I'm saying that in the present tense, because the changes -- and I don't mean just the song -- the impact that he had on artists was that we didn't have to just do the same old same old. He was much braver than we are." Simmons notes that he was impressed with Bowie's constantly changing musical style and fashions, noting that the singer "didn't have any barriers."

"You can't quite put your finger on who and what he is," Gene maintains. "The Thin White Duke, Ziggy Stardust...I mean, The Man Who Sold the World, there he is on the cover, before Ziggy Stardust, before anything, dressed as a woman. What he did was he dared us...You know the phrase 'marching to the beat of your own drums.' He was a singular artist."

Simmons points out that Bowie's creativity also extended to his inventive stage shows, something he did have in common with Gene's band. "He understood that when fans and strangers come to see you live, it's not enough just to strum a guitar and play your next song," Simmons explains. "That people listen with their eyes. And he gave everybody all that, and more."

Simmons says a specific time in KISS' career when Bowie served as a role model was in the early '80s, when the band was deciding to begin performing without makeup.

"We were scared to death of taking the makeup off, thinking, 'Oh my God, the fans are going to abandon us,'" Gene recalls. "And somehow Bowie made it OK. It was, like, 'Yeah, you make the rules, you can break your own rules.' He certainly was a rule breaker." Simmons also maintains that Bowie is one of those rare artists that deserve to be called an icon. "Yeah, Elvis. Yeah, The Beatles. Yeah, David Bowie," says Gene, then quips, "The Partridge Family? Not so much."

Simmons says he remained impressed with the way Bowie approached his music right up to the end of his life. "Maybe it says something about his life, about his dignity and grace, that the last album he recorded, [Blackstar,] he did it while he was suffering from cancer quietly without using media to advance any kind of agenda," Gene notes.

He adds that he was blown away that the first line of Bowie's new song "Lazarus" is "Look up here, I'm in heaven."
