i effing love Bowie -- most things he has had a hand in infact - obviously his early glamier stuff is greatness but my favs are the Berlin stuff he did with Eno (the king!!!) like "heroes" and "low"..... awesome stuff. and he was in "Labyrinth". What a guy! He went off the boil a bit in the late 80's and 90's though. as everyone did from that generation i suppose ...

he was also in the man who fell to earth

didnt mind some of the stuff he did in the 80's,i have low but rarely listen to it,think the only time he has really lost it was when he joined a band (tin machine) :blink:

Bowie is the man! I'm surprised his music isn't sampled more often in hip hop. I think his craziest movie role was Pontius Pilate in Martin Scorcese's The Last Temptation of Christ.

Yeah my older sister got me into Bowie when I was like 13. I've liked him ever since but I've come to appreciate his music more and more as I got older. He's really hard to look at sometimes but he's made some serious tunes.

Some of the sounds on Little China Girl are just plain amazing.

Nah, his craziest movie role was, hands down, Twin Peaks Fire Walk with Me. It should have been crazier then it was in the movie

I love Bowie. My favourite era was just after the glam, so from Diamond Dogs to Heroes. His last two albums (Reality and Heathen) are also really good. No coincidence that Tony Visconti was back on board for those aswell...

^^ I believe Stevie Ray Vaughn is on the 'Lets Dance'. Along with Nile Rodgers, who produced the album.

I read a nice interview with Tony Visconti who produced Bowie in a producer issue (old shit) of Tokion magazine. Lovely interview with Andy Johns who produced the classic Zeppelin shit, it's weird how he disses Rick Rubin, even though Rick Rubin thinks Johns is the ultimate.

FAAAAAAAME!!!


Bowie is coolness reincarnated, bigger than life, too hard to live!


Heard his perfectly suited »neon-ambience vs. human decay«-like epics in the german movie Christiane F in the mid-eighties and was completely blown away (Btw., anyone ever saw that? -Freakin unbearable realness in its purest form, a really uncomfortable, almost face-to-face-like venture into the daily lives of teen-junkies livin by the infamous Bahnhof Zoo in 70'ies Berlin - bear in mind that this lil' skinny whiteboy was just about to dawn on all the harsh realities of life). :D
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082176/


Despite all of the above, and that Bowie himself also does a cameo in it, the movie also showcases Bowie's brilliant We Could Be Heroes among others.
Nobody ever embodied human decadence, excentric behavour and endless, undisputed artistic endeavor etc.
In short: Everything great in my books! :lol:

David Bowie forfreakinever!

Btw: Love so many of the man's tunes, but Ashes To ashes has to be one of them most memorable, eventho' he made so many catchy compositions. Ah shit, now This Is Not America as well as I'm Deranged (from the Lynch's Lost Highway) comes to mind, aargh, can't decide all of a sudden!
