Yes, everything is gone, sold out.

I already purchased everything long ago and the physical copy of Blackstar will be delivered Wednesday.

What Bowie song should Prince cover as a tribute?

Quicksand? razz





Prince on the piano doing "Life on Mars?" would be amazing




Prince singing a cover version of "Heroes" would be fantastic! Hope the Grammys do a wonderful tribute of his music.

That's amazing how when someone this huge passes away people scramble to get CDs and commemorative newspapers to have as keepsakes. I guess everything "digital" only goes so far.

WTF! After an 17 hour+ flight to Dubai I step off the plane exhausted and thrilled with Bowies new CD that I listened to on repeat for most of the flight just to have the first thing I see at the airport is a news channel reporting Bowie has passed. WOW! Shocked like so many, didn't even know he was fighting cancer and am in total shock

The music world has lost a legend. RIP DAVID BOWIE

Thanks for giving us one final and amazing piece of art Blackstar. After heavy rotation of the new CD it's now going be very hard to listen to it again fighting back the tears rose rose rose
The greatest live performer of our times was is and always will be Prince.

Remember there is only one destination and that place is U
All of it. Everything. Is U.

Indeed and on a related note, one of my brothers called me the day of Michael Jackson's passing telling me he was ordering several copies of each of his albums just so that he could sell them and make money in the future. doh!

That brother was under the influence, methinks.

I heard the news this morning just a I was heading out the door to go to work, and I didn't have any opportunity to chime in on his passing untill now, but this is a shock to me. omfg cry I wasn't even aware he was that seriously ill, but his "Lazarus" video looks incredibly foreboding in light of this tragic news.

He started out humbly but became Ziggy Stardust, the freaked out, androgynous, almost alien being who brought in the glam rock movement. But he did just about everything, from "Space Oddity," "Rebel Rebel," "Changes," "Young Americans" (which featured a young backup singer named Luther Vandross), "Heroes," "Fame" (considered one of the earliest funk/disco songs), "Fashion," "Ashes To Ashes" (which as the Thin White Duke was his way of putting Ziggy Strardust to rest), "Let's Dance," "China Girl," "Blue Jean," even his low points with Never Let Me Down and the Tin Machine albums, but bouncing back in a critically acclaimed way with "I'm Afraid of Americans." Just as you got used to one persona, he would suddenly change it to something else.

He was legendary in his own right, radically changing the face of pop and rock and roll, but he was literally a major influence in generations of artists, particularly Prince, Madonna, and even Michael Jackson, but his incfluence was found in artists like Iggy Pop and the Stooges, Elton John, new wave bands like Culture Club and Duran Duran, 90's acts like Nirvana and Nine Inch Nails, and even Lady GaGa.









RIP Mr. Bowie. You will be dearly missed, but I'm sure you found Major Tom by now.

When a hero dies, everyone wants a quote. I woke up this morning with a tender head from tears and that big red cup of Japanese whiskey, gulped last night just after the news came. People were already asking me what I thought. It feels kind of garish to talk about oneself at a time like this, when the thing that has happened is so distinctly world-sized. But everything I’ve read or seen since the news has been deeply intrinsic in tone, almost selfish, like therapy. That’s who he was to all of us. He was a piece of bright pleated silk we could stretch out or fold up small inside ourselves when we needed to.
Mr. Bowie, I guess right now we have to hang this thing up for a minute.

The night I met him I played at an expensive Vogue benefit with a lot of fresh flowers, honouring Tilda. I was not quite seventeen, America was very new to me, and I was distinctly uneasy and distrustful toward everything happening in my life that was putting me in these flat-voiced, narrow-eyed, champagneish rooms. I played my three songs, thrashing and twitching in platform boots. Afterward, Anna clasped my hand and said “David wants to meet you,” and led me through people and round tables with candles and glasses and louder and louder talk, and he was there.

I've never met a hero of mine and liked it. It just sucks, the pressure is too huge, you can't enjoy it. David was different. I'll never forget the caressing of our hands as we spoke, or the light in his eyes. That night something changed in me - i felt a calmness grow, a sureness. I think in those brief moments, he heralded me into my next new life, an old rock and roll alien angel in a perfect grey suit. I realized everything I’d ever done, or would do from then on, would be done like maybe he was watching. I realized I was proud of my spiky strangeness because he had been proud of his. And I know I'm never going to stop learning dances, brand new dances.

It's not going to change, how we feel about him. For the rest of our lives, we'll always be crashing in that same car.

Thankyou, David Bowie.

Like a gazillion other people, I feel stunned by the news that David Bowie has departed this earth.
At the loss of someone who has impacted and influenced your life, you can hardly begin to measure the shape of what’s left behind.
Our personal and collective inner landscape has shifted and we’re trying to come to terms with it.
No one exists forever and it seems our elegant gentleman was well aware that his last mortal chapter was about to reach it's conclusion.
"Blackstar" was his parting gift.
Provocative and nightmarishly “otherworldly”… we are jolted towards the twilight realms of epileptic seizures and voodoo scarecrows.
The bejewelled remains of Major Tom lie dormant in a dust coated space suit…
It leaves me breathless.
You must see it to believe it…
He knew…
He could see through it all.
Yeah, we'll, we'll try to imagine what silence looks like.

In the "Remembering David Bowie piece there's an error:

"Bowie had a heart scare while on tour to support his 2013 album Reality..."

That should be corrected to 2003.

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

The world is missing him and every physical copy of his albums are sold out on Amazon, including the recently released 12 CD box set of his first 5 albums that was going for the low 100's.

I don't believe any artists legacy could be more revered than Mr. Bowie's and here's an example of his character:

Unlike many of you, I haven't listened to Blackstar yet, even though I have it. I started on Friday night, but then had to stop to take care of some other matters. And I never got back to it this weekend... and now, I kind of dread it. I wish I'd gotten in at least one innocent listen before he died. I did play Changes for some reason Sunday--just an impulse, made my wife and daughter wait till it was done before we left the house. But I didn't have a Bowie weekend. I'd planned to get to the album tonight.

So today, my wife's looking at Facebook and says to me, "Did you hear anything about David Bowie?" I say, "Well, there's the new release" (she doesn't always pay attention when I'm talking about music, so I didn't know if she even knew anything about the album), and I walk over to the computer screen when she doesn't immediately say, "Oh, okay." And I see the beginning of a post her brother-in-law linked to starting out with something along the lines of "David Bowie knew he was dying for 18 months" and there was just this emptiness. It really is difficult to believe.

I saw someone on social media call David Bowie "Sir David Bowie" and that seemed really out of place for some reason. Later, I saw this article here about how Bowie refused being knighted. This guy was really in a league of his own for saying no to the Queen.
