Yea, that took me by surprise. I got out my David Bowie CDs and started listening to them. I think he was very under rated. I saw him on the Diamond Dogs tour in 1974. That was the tour where they recorded David Live www.amazon.com/.../175-1124081-8557932 . I was right next to the stage, actually leaning on it. A friend and I hitch-hiked 150 miles to go to that concert.
The thing I thought was amazing is that he actually looked younger, more healthy, and more happy as he got older. He seemed burned out back in the Ziggy days.
