    It's far from rape, and dilutes the word, when girls choose to sleep with someone.
    However, apart from the man doing what was normal in those days (if he ever did anything normal), you have to admit he was bloody talented.

    I'm sticking to listening to his stuff, enjoying what I hear, and being a little pissed off he can't make more.
    RIP David Bowie, and fuck anyone who doesn't like my opinion.

    But at least we could ignore it, and it'd distract the negative vibe merchants

    Just watched from BBC4 on Saturday,
    David Bowie at Glastonbury 2000.
    Sat with hairs raised on neck through some numbers and a heavy heart through others.
    So pleased I managed to see him live, though only once it now seems a lifetime ago but I am so glad I was around and able to do so.
    It is being released on sale on November the tenth I believe.

    That post is months old.

    Surely you can goad someone else into an argument with a more recent event?

    I think people have made their point very clearly now and there is no need or purpose in repeating it again and again and again.

    So was he capable of ugly acts? Absolutely. Does this thread need to be full of the same thing repeated again and again? No.

    The A-Z of David Bowie is a pretty good podcast by Mark Riley and Rob Hughes.

    Although you can safely say it's "for fans only". They go into depth about most things- like a ten minute biography of someone who once shared a lift with Bowie type thing

    My partner went on a David Bowie walk in Beckenham a few weeks ago (part of London Open House weekend) and said the same about that!

    I did my own a couple of years ago. There's not much there really. Haddon Hall is now a road and flats. Arts Lab is Zizzi, albeit with Bowie pictures everywhere.
    The bandstand in the Croydon Road Recreation Ground is still there, pretty identical to Memories of a Free Festival.

    Still, Beckenham has some lovely charity shops.

    Heads up for Bowie fans, there's 2 specially commissioned documentaries to be aired on Greatest Hits Radio this week, the first is on Friday at 9pm & the other on Sunday at 4pm.

    Greatest Hits Radio launched this morning across most of the UK on DAB, FM in Liverpool/North West/North Wales & the West Midlands, AM across much of the north & Scotland (although they have retained the local names, and separate daytime presenters, in Scotland).

    The UK version, i.e. the one not connected to the various local radio areas listed below, currently only carries ads at the top of the hour, so it's not a bad listen. The UK version is on Tunein or their website:
