    I've checked and it wasn't, it was the nineties. Apart from Oasis, they were *****.

    Again, I don't make the rules, science does so if you don't agree with that then you're an anti-vaxxer and anti-climate change.
    Only flat earthers believe it was the nineties, although it's a proven fact that Liam Gallagher is a dick!

    If she started singing she'd burst his eardrums. She's a screamer 😀

    From the first post we’ve gone from the OP calling him ‘the absolute king of music’ to him being then described as ‘Cringeworthy’ , pish poor’ , ‘self indulgent crap’

    Yes, I’m sure

    Actually, you're right

    Even a stopped clock tells the right time twice a day

    I don’t actually dispute that a few of Bowie songs could be described as self indulgent or crap, (the laughing gnome sucks the root as far as I’m concerned) but same goes for every artist Lennon, Marley, Dylan all wrote stinkers. It’s part of the creative process so almost passes without comment for me.

    A middle aged man performing songs written for Adele in front of a massive sign that reads "Rock n' Roll". Who's he trying to kid?

    Sorry but he doesn't come close to Prince for that accolade.

    The moment when he bursts into chorus in “Life On Mars” is the greatest moment in music history.
    The greatest moment in pop history is the transition from the title song into Little Red Corvette on Prince's 1999 album.

    The greatest Bowie moment is when the "it's not the side effects of the cocaine" section on the Station to Station song kicks in.

    Well known facts.

    Bowie deserves genius status for this track alone. He did also produce some right old tosh though.
    Every gimmick hungry yob,
    Digging gold from rock and roll
    Grabs the mic to tell us,
    He'll die before he's sold.

    No, I've double checked and Queen are defo pish. Came from the same people who told me that Morrissey was a bit of a knob.

    But your comment about Morrissey is true.

    I’m really into my music and was so fortunate to start going to gigs as a young teenager during early days of punk/new wave. Prior to that I was into Slade and Bowie.

    I mind buying a cassette (Young Americans) from a strange wee 2nd hand shop opposite my school (Leithy). The tape reeked of fags and perfume which added to the vibe and I played it endlessly. For some reason his song ‘Changes’ on Hunky Dory really got its hooks into me . I still like it but when I was 14 it was the best song ever. I also mind the day soon after, when Bowie tickets arrived for the Glasgow Apollo gig in 1978. Excited beyond belief and when the gig happened and Bowie waked on stage it was unbelievable.The musical equivalent of seeing another David lifting the Scottish Cup

    There was always something extra special about Bowie though. Can’t explain but to this day his music and the overall aura is the best for me Can’t stand the glass spider period though but he had to deviate into commercial pop in order to raise a few quid at that time. The fact he can even do this is pretty impressive.

    Before lockdown I was in Brixton a lot. Used to walk past Bowie’s house on the way to work and always gave me a boost. I think his music and attitude will forever continue to inspire new bands and that’s the best accolade really.

    Music is very subjective. I liked Bowie, a lot of music is about expressing yourself and Bowie certainly did that. But each to their own. I liked most of his stuff and don't really care if other people didn't. Even my favourite artists I didnt like every track they ever produced.
