    1. Yep, my older brother brought home the Ziggy Stardust album back around 1972 and we practically wore the vinyl out listening to it.

      I think Bowie's musical, cultural and artistic influence, like Dylan's, reached far beyond his commercial sales numbers.

  1. I'm preparing for a Trump presidency:

    TRUMP: Football has become soft. Football has become soft. Now, I'll be criticized for that. They'll say, 'Oh, isn't that terrible.' But football has become soft like our country has become soft. [Applause] It's true. It's true.

    The Rise of the Ignorants was marked by Bowie with Tin Machine.

    “Can’t Read Shit”

    “Under The God”

  2. Bowie is survived by his wife of 23 years, fashion model Iman, their 15-year-old daughter Alexandria Zahra Jones, and his son, Moon director Duncan Jones, from his previous marriage.

    Sincerest condolences.

    PS: Bowie’s real name was Jones but there already was a famous, though far less talented and influential, Davie Jones of the Monkees. Pretty clear which one’s legacy will be the most enduring.

  3. Neil Diamond did a song around 1970 called "Done Too Soon." It was a listing of great people who may have died before their time, when there were still great things to accomplish. He got in a bit of trouble with the far right because he included Ho Chi Minh in his list. But "done too soon" definitely applies to both Mr. Bowie and Mr. Mercury. 

    1. Whereas Neil Diamond couldn't have been done producing sappy songs too soon for me if he'd quit in the 60s. Even as a young teen I had a low tolerance for sappy.

  4. …and financed by Grandpa Bush?  Has anyone asked the question whether Grandpa Trump was a third leg in this ménage à trois?  

    Father of Koch Brothers Helped Build Nazi Oil Refinery, Book Says

    …the book is largely focused on the Koch family, stretching back to its involvement in the far-right John Birch Society and the political and business activities of their father, Fred C. Koch, who found some of his earliest business success overseas in the years leading up to World War II. One venture was a partnership with the American Nazi sympathizer William Rhodes Davis, who, according to Ms. Mayer, hired Mr. Koch to help build the third-largest oil refinery in the Third Reich, a critical industrial cog in Hitler’s war machine.
