I honestly don't believe Bowie is gone, and its not just wishful thinking. Something about the revelation of his diagnosis after his "death" just didn't ring true to me at all. And all the illuminati symbolism and whatnot didn't help.
Musically audacious. Sexually voracious. Coldly ambitious… How the 19-year-old singer David Bowie (then still known as Davy Jones) already knew he was going to be a superstar
It is a cold January afternoon in a hotel car park in Bromley, and we are about to be sacked as David Bowie’s band. Or perhaps we’re quitting – it’s not absolutely clear. Our drums, guitars and amplifiers have been partly unloaded from our bus when Bowie turns up in the passenger seat of a Jaguar driven by our manager, Ralph Horton. We – myself, guitarist Denis ‘T-Cup’ Taylor and bassist Graham Rivens – have agreed that we won’t play that night’s show, a hometown performance for David at an old haunt of his, The Bromel Club, unless Horton pays us.
"“Lodger” is a stupendous symphony. It adds a new dimension to symphonic thought by expansively expounding on the essence of the lyrics written by Bowie and Brian Eno that the music of the 1979 album only hints at."
