The original post

Posted by Necrogeddon on 21.06.2008 at 01:44
I personally love David Bowie, I listened to him alot before I started on metal. Although he may not be recognised as a really influential artist by some, his music has always really appealed to me.

Does anybody else like him?

comparing Bowie to Madonna is ridiculous
Bowie has experimented a lot throughout his career, you may not know that. He considers himself a pop artist though and he's been anything but that.


gosh you still don't get, Maradona and David each created next album different sound,


so Maradona sings? ROFLMAO

Madonna, Maradona, same thing, who gives a...


well in Jackie Chan movie he told 'she looks like a Maradona'' idiot Maradona is footy player, you mean Madona''

Bovie and such pop artists are similar, non album has similar sound, if Bowie wont gave old Ziggy shit he wont be so fanose

he was famous before Ziggy, he made a lot of great music after Ziggy as well.

comparing Bowie to Madonna is insulting, at least to me; why not compare Bowie to Pink Floyd, they made different albums as well.

So you listen to Madonna (you know some things about her) - LOL - keep up the good work

David Bowie always experimented, The Stones did not, they stopped doing that when Mick Taylor (who replaced Brian Jones) left. That was '72 if I remember right. Bowie never stopped trying new things. Just listen to his last album but then again, I'm sure you won't like it since proggish, experimental music is not your type.

Bowie was not a pop artist. He was an artist.

Anyone who even remotely knows anything about Bowie knows, his music went through so many shiftings, it's impossible to fit him in a box. Not only, he was also an actor (and a great one as well!), painter, sculpturist.

When it comes to comparing Bowie to Madonna, there is one BIG, GREAT, ENORMOUS difference: Bowie was a trendsetter, a man ahead of his time. He set his mind on what he wants to do, what he wants to represent & how to do it and set a linfe of trends throught the decades, many, so many came to follow. Madonna however, has simply been following the scene and made herself fit to whatever was popular in order to stay relevant and gain new following.

There are so many artists who have done major changes in their sound, appearance and artistry, but a few really did it with style and made a difference. Bowie was undoubtedly one of them. It would make more sense to compare him with Cher, than Madonna. Also, Bowie was incredibly talented and his talent never wore off - not even once. Madonna, well if you know her life story and her work, she made it because she is incredibly persistent and hard working. Her talent was and is a lesser proportion of her success.

That being said, I cannot tell you how Bowie's death hit me. No celebrtiy death has such impact on me, because Bowie's music became a bigger and bigger part of my life, as I grew older. Low is still & will remain one of my all time favourite albums. RIP Major Tom, Starman, Thin White Duke, David Jones, David Bowie.

There's nothing wrong with pop, and I wouldn't dismiss the excellent sense Madonna had that kept her relevant and fresh. (Ray of Light is rightly regarded as an excellent pop album and a successful reinvention.) The difference is consistency, of course: Madonna's career is full of hits and misses, whereas Bowie has great albums over four decades. And she's more a performer than a musician, of course. But I don't see why you'd make the comparison or diss either of them.

I don't know if Bowie was so much ahead of his time as carefully attuned to what was already making its way to the surface of popular music, and picking it up. It's hindsight, of course, but he seems to have had an uncanny sense for what would be hip, and make it his own. Take Low, for instance - it's not as if Brian Eno, John Cale, Kraftwerk etc. hadn't already done something in the general style, but the album doesn't sound derivative.

What do you mean? Pink Floyd changed styles very often.

A Saucerful of Secrets, Ummagumma and Atom Heart Mother
The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here
Animals
The Wall
The Final Cut
A Momentary Lapse of Reason
The Division Bell and The Endless River

A big simplification of some, not all, of their albums and there are so many different styles. Was A Momentary Lapse of Reason sticking to their roots? Or The Final Cut which was basically a Roger Waters solo project. The Division Bell is so far from Ummagumma or Dark Side etc -- for many reasons obviously.

Basically I don't know what you mean by sticking to their roots?

How much have you actually listened to his later albums, BE? You said he did maybe 5 good albums, by which I assume you mean The Man Who Sold the World, Hunky Dory, Ziggy, Aladdin Sane and Diamond Dogs. (Or Station to Station rather than The Man?)

So what exactly is your opinion of, say, Heroes, Low, Scary Monsters, 1. Outsider and now Blackstar (which are all considered excellent by a pretty large group of people, so they're hardly the obscure, unapproachable art stuff you referenced)? To be honest, I was shocked by just how good Blackstar is. It's a little uneven, but the best tunes are haunting. Like Scott Walker, it seems he aged well.
