So Duncan could be producing David's next video?

Yet you weren't curios enough to listen to Tin Machine until Pablo and I started giving you a hard time





Agreed, but I had a mental grudge against those albums, It's the only way I can describe my intense dislike for that Bowie period, but in saying that! the Tin Machine albums were better than I had imagined although I'm still not keen on them.

Re: What If? new [re: diamondogz74]  

I might have bought at least the first album out of curiosity. And then the second if I'd liked the first one. But I think I might have followed some discussions about the album on this board before I would've bought even the first one.

Of course the idea that he's Bowie's son and might have inherited at least some of the talent would make it interesting, so would, of course, Bowie's involvement in it. But then I think it should differ at least to some extent of what Bowie's done, because if it was almost similar, it would not feel right, because there could never ever be another David Bowie, even his son could not replace him, so even trying it would be stupid. Then I got to thinking of the voice thing. I love Bowie's voice, but if Duncan's voice was too similar that too would feel kind of disturbing, too. I don't know if anyone gets what I mean, but if Duncan tried to make an album, it wouldn't be enough if it was just good, it would also have to be different enough from everything his father has done.

What if we wasted less time on inane questions, and tried to think of something more interesting to write about.

I understand precisely what you are on about Kati, this is the reason for my thread, you see it didn't work for Julian Lennon ( although some will argue it did ) but all he did was sound like his father, rather poorly at that.

Quite correct there is only one David Bowie.

I dunno, I saw one picture of him ...Ill jhave to try and find it-he was walking down some stairs, and he was the spitting image of his father. But it was also black and white, and that can hide things in ways that color pictures can't.

Tin Machine, take me anywhere. new [re: diamondogz74]

Give the Tin Machine albums lots of time. They are not liked instantly. They are slow growers.

If I didn't know them and only tried to get into them now, I would struggle too. They are not easy although they are really quite good if you get to know them over a long period of time.

( Don't listen to Bowie now saying they were bad albums! He is talking bull! )

Tin Machine was the only 'new' Bowie music to listen to for 2 years before Black Tie White Noise. I listened to Tin Machine almost daily because it was all that was new. Initially I was dissapointed with the songs and hard sound but it really grew on me. Now when I listen to them they are just filled with the best memories and strange feelings. To good to just listen to as backround music.

I play them when I feel particularly down and/or lonely and just close my eyes and listen. They are magical now.

And I used to feel SO dissapointed in Bowie the first time I heard Tin Machine.

Have a look at more pictures of Duncan. I don't have any to show you, but if you look at a few more you might see it too. He DOES look like his dad but he looks much more like Angie. IMO.

Re: What If? new [re: diamondogz74]  

All I can see is a red X, Ant.
As for Duncan, Why did he change his name? Was it for the obvious reason, or something more meaningful?
And another question,
Was his real full name Zowie Duncan Jones/Bowie?
Maybe to lower his status? hhmmm?
