imo one of the greatest riffs in R&R history
RIP

"I'm afraid of Americans" got me back on track with Bowie. RIP.

Gutted :( Absolutely love his songs, especially Ashes to Ashes and Let's Dance. I think I'm the only one who disliked him in The Prestige though :lol:

RIP

Hadn't expected his passing to hit me quite as hard as it has. Was never consciously a major Bowie fan, but this news has been like a punch to the guts this morning. A unique talent, a real influencer, always avant garde, pioneering, often experimental. Farewell Major Tom. Rest in peace.

Whether it's God or the bomb
It's just the same
It's only fear under another name
And the corporate snakes coming in to feed
On that pathetic fact known as human greed
Skin and bone being raked over those hot coals
This dump never seems to give time for human soul

Another true rock and roll star. Didn't even realise he was sick either. Was never a huge fan but would occasionally be struck by the brilliance of certain tunes.

Fuuuuuuuuuck. He turned 69 just the other day. Incredibly creative and productive right up until the end.

A true great, RIP. Couldn't believe it when I heard this morning. I actually had a tear in my eye when they played Starman, the lyrics in the chorus just seemed so much more powerful and strangely poignant. :(

I wasn't simply a fan of his. I've been obsessed with Bowie for the majority of my conscious life. I probably know the lyrics to every f***ing song he's done and there's shitloads of them. So sad that I've never had the chance to see him perform live.

As sad as it sounds, losing my other musical hero - Scott Weiland - a month ago, hit me so hard I still can't quite get over it. And now Bowie.. RIP Thin white duke, thank you for teaching me what art is.

I've been close to tears all morning :lol: No idea why, I've never been affected by the passing of a 'celebrity' like this before.

It's hard to imagine a world without him, he's just always been there. Even thought about him at Live Aid where along with Queen and U2; he stole the show. Just a huge loss.
RIP gejon/cajun/ Jon Lockwood.

Proud to have made your acquaintance Sir.

His music helped me get through through some times, man. That's for sure. Shouting along to "Five Years", trying to be Mick Ronson on "Black Country Rock" and "The Width of a Circle", listening to Hunky Dory for like every day for who knows how long. s***.

Not what I expected to see when I woke up this morning, feels slightly comforting I went as him this Halloween. Man, this one hurts

Grew up with his music, cried this morning couldn't believe it. Must have fought to stay alive until he got his last album out. Peerless.

Pretty much exactly the same here :lol:. My wife told me when I woke up. She played Under Pressure and Let's Dance and danced round with the kids in our bedroom, while I went downstairs and played Oh You Pretty Things/Eight Line Poem, Ashes to Ashes, and Buddha of Suburbia.

It's weird though. Twenty years ago I'd have been really shaken up, now I'm so much older and so many others have gone this didn't hit me anywhere near a hard as, say, John Peel did. Still. f***.
Obviously, I'm speaking of a hypothetical world in which there is a greater club than Tottenham.
