A genius


From his self-titled 1st LP to Blackstar Bowie was God! I first saw him on Lift Off With Ayshea doing Starman and I wasn't impressed. Who did he think he was ripping off Marc Bolan? I saw him a short while later on Top of the Pops and I was a convert. I bought the reissues and devoured them reading the lyrics whilst listening to the records and now if an old Bowie record comes on I can dredge the lyrics up and sing along. I got Blackstar on the 9th of January and had only heard it once before I heard the awful news on the 11th. I have to say that Blackstar is a work of genius and a fitting epitaph. His incredible body of work will live on. RIP Starman!
