My gosh, is he still recording? I have his first album and then he seemed to have dropped off the face of the Earth.

He did disappear for a long time...I vaguely remember reading that it was the typical artist nosedive. But he must have pulled out of it - he has a live album from 2014 on Spotify.

David Bowie on TV in Germany from 1978 featuring a pre-King Crimson Adrian Belew on lead guitar. Never been a super Bowie fan but I think his late 70s work with Brian Eno and Robert Fripp is his most interesting period. They pulled something out of him that seems missing to me from his earlier and later (and more commercially successful) work. Fans of Todd Rindgren's Utopia may recognize synth player Roger Powell.

You don't know from bad metal until you hear Pat Boon trying to sing Metallica.

Thanks for that David Bowie link, Ezra.

I agree with you about the Bowie period in the late 70s, in particular the so-called Berlin Trilogy works. For the last few days the Lodger LP has been floating around here, as I'm gathering up and sifting through the long play albums. I'd say DB's Station to Station to Scary Monsters was an all-time high for originality.

The stage attire is varied and colorful as well! There is no attempt to really look new wave. I didn't realize DB had a violinist during this period of live performance.
