David Bowie Tribute Thread

Recommended Posts

I needed to set this thread up as I'm absolutely shocked and saddened by hearing about the death of David Bowie.

 

He was an inspiration for me and I loved his style, music, intellect, attitude and just all round enigma.

 

I'd always thought that I'd love to meet him and have a chat, out of anyone else on earth, now I've been sadly denied the chance.

 

So, I know he meant alot to many, many other, please leave tributes and memories here.

 

RIP Ziggy   :sorry:

It is a shock this morning, I had no idea he was ill.

A huge talent and character methinks.

Aww, very sad to lose him. What a legacy of music though.

I came downstairs just now, switched the radio on as I always do.....and then heard them talking about Bowie in the past tense. Surely not!!?? He's just released his new album and he sounds amazing on it!!?? 

I'm floored, and found myself unexpectedly welling up.....which I hasten to add I never do! I have Ashes to Ashes to thank for pretty much single handedly steering my music choices through my life, from Gary Numan to NIN and beyond. He's been a big influence without me realising it I guess.

A starman indeed.

It was dark and I was driving in the heavy rain when it was announced on the radio, I felt quite emotional, 

He sang to me throughout my teenage years in the 1970's/80's and kept me sane or perhaps insane.... 

RIP David Bowie

Came down this morning to check on the weather, saw MSN headlines and was absolutely gob smacked, speechless, did anyone know he was ill??  Played life on Mars on radio as a tribute was in tears,  reminded me of when Freddy Mercury dies and they played Bohemian Rhapsody.  I thought he was going to be around forever.  Such a fantastic natured person and musician.  Seen me through the 80's with his music. Such a monumental showman.

Up with your "STARSHIP" and the "STARS" now ---- you were one big star ....  VERY SAD DAY

RIP David Bowie:nonono:

tbh i was never much of a fan, however i do recognise that he was one of our most creative and influential musical artists ever, and few if any can match his portfolio. 

sad news...

heres some early rare tracks by him (shamelessly lifted from my rare 60's classics thread on digital spy music forum)

I was in the crowd as David played this most memorable set at Glastonbury 2000. He had laryngitis, but carried on in true professional style, and you'd never have known. Still my favourite show of all time. Very sad to learn of his passing. :(

Amazing enough to have his "Space Oddity" played from space. I always loved the light darkness of his music. Seemingly a very private man although very famous, so no wonder really nothing was known about his illness. RIP David...

Deeply saddened. It's difficult to explain to anyone under 55ish, just ho enormous he was, not just as an artist. There are just not the people of hi stature and importance anymore. I think the best explanation I ever heard came from Danny Baker a few years ago, telling the story of queueing outside a record shop at midnight  for the release of Diamond Dogs. It finished with the line "Cos in those days kids, Bowie MATTERED!!"

Thanks for everything and I think I feel a few tears shed to Hunky Dory coming on.

Always sad when a memorable person passes on. But do we have to have wall to wall coverage on the news?  He was after all only a pop star.   There was extensive coverage on BBC news about David Bowie and very little about serious issues such as poor babies, children and adults being starved to death in Syria.

In my teens (and just before my teens) he was a huge star of the music scene - i was never really in to him as i was really into Heavy rock and metal.

I guess only being 12/13 at his height of fame i prob didnt really understand his music and his artistic creations.

But i do like his singles like Changes, Heroes, Starman and others - yeah, classics.

Shame about that dreadful duo with Jagger though "Dancing in the streets".

Loved that film he did based on the war in the Far East, Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence.

But, importantly, he was an 'influencer' and other famous music artists followed him, not the other way around.

RIP - you were truly a great music artist.
