Thread: In memory of David Bowie

  1. #1

    In memory of David Bowie

    Let's remember today about David Bowie - a unique artist and musician. A modest tribute to him with an instrumental acoustic version of the song "Space Oddity".

    No matter how corrupt, greedy, and heartless our government, our corporations, our media, and our religious and charitable institutions may become, the music will still be wonderful. - Kurt Vonnegut

    Here's 2002 Montreux, one of just a handful of shows where Bowie played all of the Low album live. Along with most of Heathen.


    Same show with no video, but audio is better

    This is a bit whack, but it's a really good cover version:

    I recently did a Bowie binge, playing every album from the first to last.

    I loved 95% of it but was especially surprised how good the last couple really were. Not just Black Star but also Heathen, Reality and the Next Day; all winners.

    Daniel, that was a great rendition of Space Oddity. Thanks for sharing it!

    I thought we’d already passed the anniversary of Bowie’s death, but now I see it’s not till Sunday -is that correct? I kind of resent that the events of the past couple of days here in the US have distracted me from being able to be aware of things like this, especially when those events were completely avoidable. As if we didn’t already have enough to handle. Fuck that!

    In any case, I can’t believe it’s been five years since Bowie died! RIP.

    This concert is great! And Bowie in his more mature years has reached a unique high class in his musical performances.

    I totally agree with you.

    Thanks for your so kind words! January 8 is David Bowie's birthday - for this reason I made this video.

    I'll never forget my first Bowie concert in 1977. I stand corrected but I think it was the Low tour.
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    You stand corrected: there was no tour for Low; the one in '77-'78 was for "Heroes", with lots of Low and other stuff in the mix. That was the one that had Belew on guitar.

    Not the only tour with Belew. He was also on board for the Sound and Vision tour in 1990 as guitarist and band leader. That was the only time I was lucky enough to see David Bowie.

    Yes I saw him on this tour, Roger Powell was on synths, Adrian Belew on guitar. It was called "Isolar 2"- I have a program.

    I remembered David Bowie's birthday by playing his final albums, The Next Day & Blackstar. Love both of them and playing them back-to-back really shows him at his peak. Had the pleasure of seeing him in concert three times (the first in 1983 for the Serious Moonlight Tour; 1990 for the Sound + Vision Tour; and 2003 for The Reality Tour. All were seen in NYC). Also, just found this news in Rolling Stone...
