    I've had Blackstar on a loop since the news. So haunting an appropriate.

    The world is lesser because Bowie's not around anymore.

    I like the thought of this. I guess we are fortunate he was able to still release some new songs for us before passing. I would say other musicians should take note, but of course Bowie was one of a kind.

    You're welcome Abe and indeed...Bowie was (ever since I was about ten or so, and very much thanks to the space/sci-fi themes of his Ziggy Stardust era output) and will always be one of my utmost 70's, 80's, and classic rock favorites. At one time in my early teens, Changesbowie was one of my most spun CDs...until I got the even better Bowie: The Singles Collection 2 CD set (which included "Starman", left off the CD edition of Changesbowie, dagnabit). Speaking of "Sound and Vision", no tribute to Bowie is complete without the following...not only one of THE BEST covers of Bowie, but really anything I've ever heard.

    I thought losing Lemmy hurt, but losing Bowie just feels awful, that he worked that hard to put his final album out right before he passed is just heart wrenching

    I think I'm older than you, Maven - I'm 42 - and at the same age Bowie became one of my all time favorites - every category included - and the sci-fi themes are present in so much songs that I think it opened me to the better part of comics too (the one I actually purchase... I just bought The Kirby's Challenger of Unknown Omnibus yestersay and Saturday EC Weird Fantasy (1952 series) #13 which led to an agreement with Bradbury... I guess you will recognize things you love in those two...)... Too much things to say and to write about that. But it's needless now...

    I will just share this wonderful song, unrelated for that subject but so beautiful - and sad - today... perhaps still tonight for you :

    That's some ... I'm not even sure there's a word for that. Good on him.

    As I said on Facebook, thanks for coming to see us, Starman.
    Yes indeed - the stars look very different today. I feel very sad - even though I "only" know him through his music but he touched so many of us.

    This loss is going to linger for years. I don't think there's been so great a loss since Lennon.

    Lennon was taken from the world before he was ready. I'd like to think Bowie was ready by the time he went

    Some might argue Michael Jackson's death was a greater loss, even though he was a drug addled freak show at the end. Still, the death of Bowie was staggering.

    Agreed. Lennon was only 40 and had just resumed his career when he was murdered. Who knows the music he would've given the world if it hadn't been for Mark Chapman.

    What impressed me with Bowie was that he managed to get his act together yet never become boring. He kicked the drugs and only became cooler in the process. He married a super model but picked the classy and smart kind. He could laugh at himself ("I looked like I was make of wax in that 1973 photo with Springsteen!") yet never looked ridiculous, even when he dressed up as a clown.

    If Bowie gets sent to hell by mistake, hell's gonna freeze over, because energy doesn't come much cooler than David Robert Jones.

    Bowie's not going to hell and he's not going to heaven either. Heaven and hell will be too busy fighting over where he should go.

    Just got an alert on my phone that Alan Rickman died from cancer at 69. To the current movie watching generation, he was Severus Snape from the Harry Potter franchise, but to filmgoers of a certain age like myself, he was terrorist mastermind Hans Gruber from Die Hard and the cartoonishly evil Sheriff of Nottingham from Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.

    Die Hard is the film that brought me to his attention, but of all his roles (and he was always great in them), my favorite would be Alexander Dane in Galaxy Quest.
