I just had a look at my first Bowie record (Scary monsters - second record I ever bought). As a teenager I used to label my records at the time of purchase: 3Jan1981.
35 years, what a trip it's been following him...
Sorely missed already.
After Lemmy, what terrible few weeks...

Thanks for mentioning Tin Machine,Kerr...we are in that handful of people who love that record...and yes Outside is very overlooked...this is just surreal that he is gone...
Mrs Fish was bigging up Outside in her interview with Radio Ulster this morning (!).
I didn't even think I was that much of a fan either, but I was genuinely sad when I heard the news, as he is just such a legendary artist in the true sense of the the word. Even his death used as part of his work.
David Bowie dying is like a painful reminder of your own mortality. He seemed like a larger than life sort of individual. I don’t like to use the word icon, but that’s exactly what he was. If there was one record of his that you hated you could just go onto the next one. He was more than just “rock and pop.”
Personally, Low and Scary Monsters do it for me. I took a spin of his latest and really liked it, too. Themes of death and mortality permeate the record and it is trippy, surreal, and grotesque. Death is the great unknown and he faced it bravely. The end… or?
