Re: David Bowie Dies

Very sad.
I saw his Glass Spider tour at Wembley Stadium in 1986.
And who can forget his performance in the 1983 film Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence?

Re: David Bowie Dies

I saw him live once - playing keyboard in Iggy Pop's band: https://vintagerock.wordpress.com/2012/01/11/iggy-pop-and-david-bowie-the-idiot-newcastle-city-hall-...

Re: David Bowie Dies

@RobPN - Very Apt.
This man is a legend to me, I have all of his early albums, but to be honest wasn't to keen on his newer work after 'Red Shoes' (Let's Dance) but a loss all the same.
