A measure of his popularity of the times is that between 100-150 thousand people rolled up at his funeral

Jack Davey compared a quiz  show called Give It A Go on 2GB
In 1955 one of his contestants was the future PM of Australia , John Howard


his signature welcoming, out of respect is now mimicked by an Adelaide radio announcer....................................................so who knows it & who the announcer is ??

Bowie was one of the foremost musical innovators of his generation.

He reinvented his mojo many times constantly challenging his audience to new concepts.

RIP Starman.

Labyrinth was one of my favourite movies as a child - that said I remember finding Bowie quite frightening as the Goblin King!

Bowie was an amazing artist. Very sad to hear of his demise.

How about the album and the haunting lyrics/video of the first single released only a few days ago? He even made art out of his own death.

Bowie was different
He also had a different album
An album of covers

BOWIE PINUPS
I have bracketed the covered artists
Listening to the album as I post

Side 1
Rosalyn [Pretty Things]
Here Comes the night[Them]
I Wish You Would[Billy Boyd Arnold]
See Emily Play[Pink Floyd]
Everythings All Right[The Mojos]
I Cant Explain[The Who]

Side 2
Friday On My Mind [Easybeats]
Sorrow[The Mccoys]
Dont Bring Me Down[ELO but after Bowie ?]
Shape Of Things[Yardbirds]
Anyway Anyhow Anywhere [The Who]
Where Have All The Good Times Gone [Kinks]

FRIDAY ON MY MIND
That David Bowie would cover an Easybeats song vocalised by Stevie Wright , is a great compliment
That both were born in 1947 , and passed away within 2 weeks of each other is ironic

The song Suffragette City [1972] is my favorite Bowie song

RIP Professor Snape (Alan Rickman).
Died on 14/1/16 at 69. Not a good age to be this week!

He was a very versatile actor and director.
From Hans Gruber in "Die Hard", to Emma Thompson's husband in "Love Actually" to the defining role as Professor Snape in the Harry Potter series.

Emma Thompson who acted with him and was directed by him wrote:

What I remember most in this moment of painful leave-taking is his humour, intelligence, wisdom and kindness. His capacity to fell you with a look or lift you with a word. The intransigence which made him the great artist he was – his ineffable and cynical wit, the clarity with which he saw most things, including me, and the fact that he never spared me the view. I learned a lot from him. He was the finest of actors and directors. I couldn’t wait to see what he was going to do with his face next. I consider myself hugely privileged to have worked with him so many times and to have been directed by him.

He was the ultimate ally. In life, art and politics. I trusted him absolutely. He was, above all things, a rare and unique human being and we shall not see his like again.


RIP Snape

Pretty sad about that one. Been a tough week for the entertainment industry.

The shining light as the Sheriff of Nottingham in what was in retrospect a fairly ordinary movie (Robin Hood Prince of Thieves).

Of course his work as Professor Snape was fantastic.
