we were not sure if we should write something about Bowie as nearly all do and everyone seems to have shared appartments with him in Berlin etc…. We not! In the 70ies I stayed in Hamburg and Berlin was still an encircled island. Nevertheless this was “my rock period” and David one of my stars. I do not share the hype about “the clear LP” , also never followed these crazy marketing campaigns but love his music. This weekend I searched for the hidden treasures in my record collection. I found some very well recorded & produced LPs as are his latest too. It is a pleasure listening to David’s music on a big system (which I could not do when I was young). So when contributing it may be best enjoying the sound while others may write nonsense like Bowie recently went into Jazz (only because he engaged good Jazz players and added some Jazz flavor) or he surprisingly uses saxophones (he did so long time before). Does it mean when you are becoming older you start realizing what it is all about Jazz?!!!
We will not forget him as he closed his mouth (China girl) … one of the greatest rock musicians ever.
