What If?  

A big what if question? let's say Duncan had gone into music following his fathers footsteps, do you think he would've been any good? and then what if? his father produced his sons albums ( say the first two ) would you have bought them...

A/ Because he's Bowie's son
B/ Bowie's contribution to the albums
C/ Respective of good or not, just had to buy them.

And if this is in the wrong catagory? I apologize.

And he would have recorded as Duncan Jones [re: diamondogz74]  

Had they been released during a time when I actually had extra cash, I probably would have bought the first album out of curiosity.

However, even if Duncan had gone into the music business, I find extremely unlikely he would have let his father produce his albums (definately not the first few), as he would have come across too much as Bowie's son trying to ride on his father's success.

Duncan Donuts [re: diamondogz74]  

Duncan might be the most grounded sensible celeb offspring ever.

And therefore the dullest.

So I wouldn't bother.

Extremists on both sides are driving the bus. Not just that, but they've persuaded the rest of us to pay to have the bus converted into a tank, and we're not allowed to look outside to see for ourselves what's really going on.

Re: Duncan Donuts [re: Shelle]  

I would buy it for all three reasons. Hmmm young girls, don't know what they're after,

Re: What If? [re: diamondogz74]  

If the albums came out when I was younger, I would have bought them. Just because.

Not now. I don't think so. If the music is really to my liking I just I might.

What does Duncan do now? I have not heard any news about him since he got some degree or something. Its a shame he doesn't look like his dad. You can see he is Angelas son.

Filming commercials mostly and very sucessful he is too...

LONDON French Connection is launching its first TV and cinema push for two years with a controversial creative featuring a violent martial arts fight between two women who end up kissing, which is likely to face a pre-watershed or outright ban.

The spot breaks next week to coincide with London Fashion Week and is part of a 2m campaign by Beattie McGuinness Bungay for its spring and summer collection that includes in-store, press and outdoor activity.

Under the slogan "fashion versus style", the creative for the TV and cinema spot features two women fighting, one representing fashion, the other style.

The spot is directed in the style of recent martial arts movie successes such as 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon' and 'Kill Bill', and includes the heavy use of violence as kicks, punches and elbows are thrown, as well as a lesbian kiss, likely to raise eyebrows as well as many complaints.

The ad features the two women getting covered in liquid, ripping off clothes before concluding with a kiss followed by a final violent headbutt.

The spot also uses Italian opera as backing music and has been directed by David Bowie's son Duncan Jones.

I think I'd be tempted to buy the albums just for curiosities sake and maybe the glimpse of his fathers voice

In my day, it was all Zowie Bowies around here.

Re: What If? [re: diamondogz74]  

I remember that I listened to a "The Cross" album once when I was completly into Queen but not fanatic enough to buy the solo stuff - and decided that the whole is sometimes indeed more than the sum of its parts...
So I guess in these times I certainly would have downloaded a few Zowie tracks and give it a try (just as I do with many musicians Bowie talks about) and then decided whether it is worth spending the money. The Bowie-produced Iggy albums were worth their money.

Yet you weren't curios enough to listen to Tin Machine until Pablo and I started giving you a hard time. Makes no sense that you'd be interested in Zowie over Tin Machine unless you were a pedophile.

True story... I stayed at a hotel in Nashville, TN while traveling in 1995 and 1997, and I looked Duncan up in the phone book because he was attending classes at Vanderbelt University in Nashville. No, I wasn't really expecting to find him listed.

Re: What If? [re: diamondogz74]  

Just thank God he didn't turn into a Jack Osborne or, even worse, a Sean Lennon.........
Infact, I don't think I've even seen a photograph of him over the last 3 or 4 years.
