to kinda help me calm down a bit, i've been listening to Bowie's early stuff. it's so good. i'm about 3 albums in, about to wrap up Young Americans with the intro to Fame.
if you haven't put those on in a while, throw them on. i always got lazy and just played his greatest hits. big mistake.
pour your coffee and turn it up on your system. let it run, on the the next one.
good stuff.
it's helping me forget my idiot.

i think it's so cool that Elon launched David into space in the roadster.

very fitting end.
that's very cool.
on top of cooling my head, i've been so bored with guitar that i haven't even picked it up in a few days, even though it's leaning up right next to my coffee maker. i hate playing electric guitar by myself, but it's so much easier to travel with than an acoustic, and i can play through headphones without making noise through the bulkheads. those early records are making me want to get home and grab my 4104 out of the rafters.

I always thought Max Zorin looked a bit like Bowie...

I was browsing some old RnR legends pics from the 60's n 70's last week and stumbled across this one. I hadn't seen Angie before and was thinking she was a strange looking girl. Took a few minutes for the penny to drop that it was David pushing the pram.

Let's Dance has some great guitar numbers on it.

The thing I always loved about Bowie's music is the chords and progressions he wrote. Even in that video above with the silly fat man song...that second chord is as surprising as it is classic Bowie. It's so him.

Here's one that actually puts a lump in my throat and a tear in my eye every time I hear it. From the 2013 release "The Next Day" ....the amazing reflections of his life in Berlin, Bowie knew he was sick and his days were numbered.

Yeah, Bowie really had something. I even like the Diamond Dogs album. Check out this earlier cut with Mick Ronson killing it live.
