David Bowie RIP

Just on BBC news. One of the greats.,

Shocked to see that. Never a big fan of his music, but in terms of art and his influence on many of the bands I loved I will always have huge respect for the man. He was clearly a man of strong principle as well, having turned down honours from the queen (on more than one occasion). RIP - Bowie in space.

Shite. Terrible news.


How long before Sid gets in with an Ashes to Ashes gag?

i’d prefer Starman myself.

Wonder how long it will take before its discovered he was a nonce all along

RIP by the way

RIP Bowie

Didn’t he also have fascist leanings/sympathies? Genuine question.

FFS, shite news. RIP to a true legend.

Whats a nonce?

He got into facist memorabilia and stuff in the 70’s alright. He was doing a lot of drugs around then though.

Yeah. BBC5 live doing a nice tribute to him on the breakfast show this morning. Nicky Campbell is a big fan.

One of the most famous people in history of music. I was never a huge fan of his music apart from a few cracking tunes.

Is there life on Mars?

Ah thats shite news to wake up to. One of the absolute greats. His output was vast, and as a result there was always going to be some ones that missed, but he has some of the absolute all time iconic songs in his back catalogue. I posted a story recently about him on the things I learned today thread about how he gave Mott The Hoople All the Young Dudes after just sitting in the middle of their sitting room and wrote it in an hour. A genius. Amazing he lasted this long to be honest given the drugs he was doing at various stage in his career.

RIP Bowie.


Was listening to him last night. I was doing up a spotify playlist for background bar/dinner music for my wedding and kept sneaking in extra Bowie songs on the sly.
An absolute genius. There are some fantastic documentaries out there - I must dig them up
