You have to fly after the spiders to Mars. Today we celebrate the 75th anniversary of David Bovie


There are people who, after leaving, say that a certain era is over. Of course, the survivors must continue to live up to what happened, but from time to time they have to admit that without it, everything is no longer as it used to be. Today, 75 years is no longer an infrequent longevity, and on January 10, 2022, David Bowie could celebrate his seventy-fifth birthday with a grand concert in which he would appear on the stage only occasionally as such, but would choose his various participants as well. favorites of the latest generations. And what a surprise it would be if Bowie didn’t choose with Grammy or stadium tours rich but completely different!

Now we can either fail to guess (because he can no longer ask himself) what he would call, what not, or assume that everything has happened as it should – Bovie is gone six years ago when he no longer had , what to choose, like our own Hardijs Lediņš, leaving today ‘s sketches of reality in his rough art, died so as not to experience a ban on constantly smoking indoors at the DJ’ s desk.

Pile-Bowie-White

Of course, good music is still being developed, because the gene for innate talent is inherited and learning is more readily available, but nowadays the experience of experienced people is no longer as important as before, everyone can find any music, listen to it and draw conclusions themselves with a few clicks. Also, the ability to recognize songs and musicians is not required if your phone has an application Shazamwhich will do much better than any human brain. Long – term BBC Radio 1 DJ John Pill, already over the age of 60, still knew how to listen and offer pearls to his listeners – in 2001 he invited him to play The White Stripes, highlighted the then unknown Jack White, who has now become the godfather of modern rock music and chose a warmer for his concert in Riga Inokentiju Mārplu, nevis The Sound Poets or Tools.

In the distant 1967 series of John Paul’s concert Peel Sessions the guest was also little-known David Bowie. Walking through the decades and researching the list of Pila’s guests, we see everything that has happened in music. Bowy, being an outstanding and versatile musician himself, of course, does not offer such a long list of enjoyers of his own bread as a DJ, but still musicians can be divided into those he accepted and those he did not. Igee Pop, Lou Reed, The Beatles a The Rolling Stones participants, Steve Vonders, Queen, The Clash, The Cure, Trents Reznors no Nine Inch Nails, Placebo, Arcade Fire… Any of the above can, of course, feel honored for Bovie’s attention, so does Dave Grail (Foo Fighters) and Chris Martin (Coldplay) offered Bovy a co – operation, which did not happen, but after the death of the idol, the two of them had the opportunity to give up his remarks, at least in the form of fuck off reply letters, but the classic found time to find the offers not interesting enough.

A man out of time

On the one hand, David Bowie was a man outside the time he worshiped during his lifetime and continues to worship, and on the other hand, he was an ordinary person who did not always manage everything as smoothly as butter. Doesn’t work in a control headset concert – it’s nothing, he sings Zigijus Stārdastu likewise, by feeling. At a press conference in Vienna, where David Bowie presented his new album Hours (1999), everyone present had the impression that he had just met an old friend in the face instead of a star.

Not all of David Bowie’s image and style changes, quests, creative successes and failures can be listed. The period when the albums came out Tonight (1984) a Never Let Me Down (1987), he called his Phil Collins years. Knowing Bovie’s healthy sense of humor doesn’t require an explanation as to why – it’s just that the two aren’t seen singing together. 70s after his epic album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (1972) Bovie was a bigger superstar than Jesus in the rock opera Ian Gilan Jesus Christ Superstar, but had invested more than he earned in his tours with grandiose scenery and costumes, and this financial pit is cited as one of the main reasons why Bowie turned to a long – standing cocaine diet. Depression because there is no money? Bean peel!

It is also believed that Bowie is the most successful businessman in popular music of all time, who always finds current winds that can be used to make his life more interesting than the most exciting book or movie, unless it is about him. Here’s a 1972 Bovie newspaper Melody Maker admits to being a homosexual, in an 1983 interview Rolling Stone however, this is denied, but in the biographical film Stardust (2020) already shows dramatic scenes of him suffering from the mockery of airport customs officers for wearing women’s clothes. And even the last album, recorded with New York jazz musicians Blackstar, which came out on Bovie’s 69th birthday, still suggests that he had carefully planned his entire life, including his departure: the artist died two days after the album was released, leaving Blackstar as an excellent requiem for yourself.

David Bowie knew how to do everything so that people would have something to think about for a long time, digging deeper and deeper ditches into their heads, wonder, draw conclusions, and change them again after a while. We can consider Bovie a prophet who has his 1980 songs Ashes to Ashes The clip already had a tablet in his hand, but had previously released an album about Zygy Stardast and spiders from Mars, which now that we really start to learn about this planet and plan to visit soon, of course, terrariums.
