The most important artist in my life. Opened ALL the doors for me. Gutted.

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...

Crap. I've never been a huge fan and only like some songs, but he was a true artist in the beste sense of the word.

It's not been a good last few weeks for Music.

I meant to buy Blackstar before the weekend and then this goes and happens and I just look like all the other ambulance chasers!

Tin Machine and Outside are 2 of my favourite records of all time, definitely top 5%

The videos he released for Blackstar and Lazarus are fucking great, so vivid.

The best tribute though has to have been the news thump thing, it's fucking genius.

I've got "Where Are We Now?" on at the moment, I'm a bit teary.

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...

I saw Tin Machine twice, in small clubs. A wall of Kleig lights and Motorhead-like volume.

And then I saw him in a 350-capacity room on Staten Island (of all places) when Heathen came out. A stunning gig.

First Lemmy, now Bowie. Who's next? Who's left?

Never was a huge fan (like Avo, I only liked a few songs here and there), but it's sad to see such a huge legend gone. RIP Bowie.

Also, if we could stop the trend of legends dying of cancer a few days after their birthday, that would be great. Thanks in advance.

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?

Btw, I am the user Body Dome Light under a different name.

The biggest crock of shit "artist" of them all. It doesn't get much worse than pretentious stageplay actors believing they understand the aesthetics of sound unfurling through space and time.

Costume change!
Bye Dave.
