That was a great view. I wonder what movie inspired him to decline and say he wasn't made for these days.

Questlove is out for the NY Bowie tribute shows. Not quite sure what to make of this as it seems petty all around.

The line-up mentioned seems least qualified to due this justice.

Pretty shameful. I hope the English scene comes up with a proper tribute for their legend. Without pettiness nor Perry fucking Farrell.

I agree. A friend of mine is/was the keyboardist for the Eagles. He said that they did a private party/show at the Forum for Glenn Frey. Stevie and JB were there among others, but he said it was really helpful and cathartic. Though I am not advocating a private show, nor saying that it's the only way to be authentic in tribute.....having these players almost certainly guarantees a less than sincere offering emotionally and artistically.

I stand corrected. Terry Farrell will be there....... :jasper:

On a more serious note, Bettye LaVette will reduce everyone to tears.

I don't get it, why don't huge stars line up around the block wanting to pay tribute to Bowie? People like Bob Dylan, Keith Richards etc

Yeah, like Gary Oldman. J/k....I don't understand it.....though II never got the Iggy thing, wtf is he? I wonder if Gail Ann Dorsey and Earl Slick will be there too.

There are so many players absent. It's just creepy weird.

this show was announced before he died. it was to be a tribute and it changed to a memorial.

the lineup doesn't do much for me. michael stipe is the only that i would be curious to see.

Hmm. Didn't know that, but still. It's been months since his death. I would think that whatever motivated the tribute would have swelled in memorial.

Coming up on the one year anniversary of Bowie's death. This is a rare clip from Bowie's stage performance in The Elephant Man from about late 1980:

Just came across this in youtube land. I don't recall ever seeing this before..


The duet was recorded for American television on October 19, 1973 at the Marquee Club in London. The producer Burt Sugarman had approached Bowie about appearing on his late-night NBC program The Midnight Special. According to the Ziggy Stardust Companion, Bowie agreed to appear on the show after being granted complete artistic control for a one-hour special. He put together a cabaret-style show featuring himself and a couple of acts from the 1960s, performing on a futuristic set. Bowie called it “The 1980 Floor Show,” as a pun on the title of his song “1984,” which was played during the opening title sequence. Filming took place over two days. The audiences were composed of Bowie fan club members and other special guests. Due to the cramped quarters in the nightclub, the camera crew wasn’t able to cover more than two angles at any moment, so Bowie and the others had to play the same songs over and over.

On the day “I Got You Babe” was filmed, the musicians and crew worked for ten straight hours.

Faithfull was invited to appear on the show as one of the back-up acts, along with The Troggs and the “flamenco rock” group Carmen. At the very end of the evening, Bowie and Faithfull appeared onstage together–he in a red PVC outfit with black ostrich plumes (he called it his “Angel of Death” costume) and she in a nun’s habit that was, by more than one account, open in the back. “This isn’t anything serious,” Bowie reportedly told the audience. “It’s just a bit of fun. We’ve hardly even rehearsed it.”

I read that "Final Act", the new doc on the making of Lazarus on stage and the album...his decision to stop treatments for C is a powerful watch and must see for DB fans.

That album is fucking nuts, one of the best ever for me. The drumming is so from a different place.
