RIP David Bowie

link.

aaah, no fucking way!

I missed out on him in my younger days, but got into him in my mid 20's. bought most of his albums. normally i avoid late-career output from old musicians, but I think I will order Blackstar.

Bummer. I was a fan as he got older, not so much in my younger days. RIP.

Chris Hadfield playing Space Oddity while in orbit is one of my favorite recordings of anything.

all my cd's, albums, etc are still in storage from our move, as is my old laptop with my entire itunes library. bummed because I really really wanted to listen to Space Oddity this morning, but can't.

I did hear Let's Dance at least on the local classic rock station.

The rule of 3 thing.

Scott Weiland, Lemmy Kilmister, and now David Bowie.

Damn, music took a hard hit.

amazon sold out of ALL his albums apparently, and that was after consistently raising the prices.

wow.

death is a good career move, as they say.
