Saw that. Got teary. I guess the show will now be a memorial service. Gotta assume one reason he kept his illness secret was for his swan song album to be received on it’s own merits, without sentiment. What an artist, I’ve spent the day listening to him. Heard a reviewer not long ago argue he was the most influential living artist in modern music. Certainly the 80’s could not have happened without him, Joy Division and Kraftwerk.

It’s ALWAYS a good time to be David Bowie.

I think they mean that if there’s a rock and roll heaven they sure must have a hell of a band leader.


#10

Did not know that! Was that before or after they referenced him in Trans-Europe Express?

WP says between Kraftwerks’s Radio-Activity and Bowie’s Station to Station tour. This article about Kraftwerk’s influence is interesting.
