But then of course, he''s no Morrissey.

Yes, I realise music didn''t start with Bowie, John, but there''s no denying that he IS the most influential artist of all time.The sight and sound of Morrissey on stage almost caused my first ever walk out (or more accurately, drag out) of a Bowie concert - nothing against Morrissey myself, but it was my wife''s first big concert and it was a hard sell even to get her to go to something like that - her suspicions that it would be some musically inept egomaniac caterwauling over an abominable sound being more or less confirmed by Mozza, she looked at me menacingly and said "If Bowie''s not 100% better than that, we''re leaving, you cu*nt".Ever since then, she insisted we time our arrival so that we don''t have to endure support acts, and the sight of Morrissey is still enough to start her ranting.

I think that slightly experimental edge of that record is in the music that I''m currently making." -- Paul Weller

Now, I''m pretty sure Weller knows more about music than you, morty.

Today has been abit of a arty indie day, with Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The Horrors in full swing.

 

To anyone who hasn''t heard it, listen to ''Sheena Is a Parasite'' by The Horros. It''ll blow you away. 2 minutes of pure epic noise.

I should imagine your take on Bowie, and your wifes take on the ''deplorable'' idea of the "supporting act", makes you exactly the type of people that he, in all fairness, would want burnt at the stake. I''m genuinely sorry to say it, but it all stinks of being way too close minded in a subject that has so much to offer, that your wife, you, me, as well as most, if not all the world, know but only a tiny fraction about in the grand scheme of it all.One example out of the other few others thousands that escape my mind, is that of Arcade Fire as the supporting act to U2 in their 2006 Vertigo tour, and utterly dwarfed Bono and his ''disciples'' on stage. A band David Bowie has not only regularly performed with in the past few years, but has himself dubbed as the best band he''s heard since "YONKS!!!", and one of the many great bands you and your wife would miss out on because of a mere distasteful outing one night so many years ago.

''Buddha of Suburbia'', ''1 Outside'', ''Earthling'', ''Heathen'' shi*t? - not a patch on his Seventies work, but certainly not shite - it''s his seventies material that is still influencing artists today.The Eighties was his worst period with the dreadful ''Tonight'' and ''Never Let Me Down'' albums, ''though one could still derive a cracking record from singles and selected tracks from that decade.In his own words the eighties were his ''Phil Collins'' years [:D]

Paul Weller is a f*cking c*nt. I absolutely hate him. I love his music, f*cking hate him. Tosser of the highest order. Someone once called him a ''c*nt'' at a gig and he stopped the whole song and said ''Ooohhh, whoever said that get up onstage and I''ll knock you out''. He''s too far up himself for me, way to f*cking far. He pretends he''s up there with the very best in the music business, when actually he''s had 3 records worth noting. I work for NME, and I can''t believe we gave him the ''Godlike Genius'' award. F*ck off.

I''m only a photographer Herman! I get paid to meet my favourite bands and chat and take a few pictures of them. It''s a great life. I''ve only been here for about 4 months so I''ve had no one really of much note other than Klaxons. I mainly do the Radar section of the mag.

Oh well, that''s it then, end of debate - John''s mums'' boyfriend plays guitar in several second-rate bands making him an authority on all things music.[/quote]You haven''t quite caught the jist of what i was saying Shyster. It''s more that the impression you give to everyone on here when it comes to music is that your very close minded, and more stubborn in defending what you know than you are in expanding and diversifying your taste and knowledge of music. Thus you making such an enormously contentious and rather firmly put statement is bound to be attacked by many, especially considering that the ground on which you preach the greatness of Bowie is a very thin one, not only because of the brief and tenuous argument you put behind it, but your own ''unique'' approach to music as it is.

Anyway, it''s not just the fact he''s plyed his trade as a ''drummer and singer'' for plenty of bands that don''t field in the mainstream, but that his life revolves around music, and it always has. Records take up approximately 75% percent of the entire mass of our household, without even going into how many LP''s he has placed in storage, he goes to local gigs very regularly, performing or not, and he''s mixed with artists high and low, from The Ramones to The Damned, in the industry in his time. He decides no one''s taste but his own though, of course, but people with that kind of well versed understanding of the industry are those more apt to substantiate such a discussion, and i''d gander not one person of that ilk would dare make as bold a statement as you have, and they''d rather sensibly choose not to do so also.
