Good heavens

David Bowie's new album is number one.
Mind you, there has been rather a lot of hype

...and of course The Thin White Duke has an army of fans :-D


eRRolSheep Report 17 Mar 2013 20:16

He certainly does.
I remember seeing him in his young days in 1832

Giving your age away Errol :-(

Never a big fan of Bowie , but I do like some of his songs, never bought an album.

It has to be all that over 50s flower power buying them from Amazon. How is it doing on iTunes and Spotify?

Everyone else either (a) has never heard of David Bowie or (b) just downloads it from the usual places. A friend bought a copy for her daughter ( why I don't know ) but daughter's Mac notebook hasn't got a CD/DVD drive lol.

Following Errol's recommendation I had a look for the White Duke and found him in Paris here
not bad at all thank you Errol.

I also remember a very irritating song "Major Tom to Earth Control" ( I thought it was birth control at the time) and an incomprehensible movie "The Man Who Fell Down To Earth".

I was more a Doors and big bikes fan myself, not into extra wide loons with spangles and so on. 501 rules ok.
