Let's Dance was the first one I owned in 1983. Unfortunately just after his concerts in Rotterdam, so I had to wait 4 years to see him live. In that same year, 1983 that is, I bought almost all of his albums.


Me too, but swap Rotterdam for Melbourne (Nov 83). In the following year (Nov 83-Nov 84) I got almost all his albums. It took me a few years to find Low on vinyl, though I had it on tape. Was very hard to find for a long time.

Had to wait for 4 years to see him live. Then, being in Australia, had to wait another 17 years for the next tour. Weren't too many Phil Collins fans at the 2004 shows


my face is finished, my body's gone and i can't help but think,
standin' up here in all this applause and gazin' down at all the young and the beautiful with their questioning eyes,
that i must above all things love myself

Re: How could you NOT be converted by Tonight new [re: Emil]  

I think there may be more of us 80s children than you think. The first Bowie song I remember distinctly was Ashes to Ashes, around 1980 or 81. Then I got Hunky Dory, which is still my favourite Bowie album. I bought Ziggy in 1982, and it was all over. Then went to his 1983 concert. The rest of the 80s was spent exploring his back-catalogue, what with the lean pickings from that time.

BS. I'm an 80s child, and far from a Phil Collins fan. I spent the 80s listening to Bowie's back catalogue, and nasty punk-rock, mostly. Hmm, ok, some things don't change. IMHO Tonight is crap.

That's an odd statement, considering that there are actual numbers to talk about. 80s child is third in this poll with a whopping 5 "votes", The question I posed is whether this is representative of Bowie's current fanbase.

Re: Bowie Generations new [re: Adam]  

It is now clear that we need to split the recent period. These generations should now be referred to as:

1999-04: Neoclassic Child

2005-10: The Stolen Generation





"My God you look nice in the cold ....... almost ....... Ukrainian ~ David Bowie as 'Monty'.

Re: Bowie Generations new [re: Adam]  

I was just beginning my Bowie craze when the Cat People single
was released. After Let's Dance conquered the world no one ever
pointed at my Scary Monsters T-shirt and called him a "faggot"
anymore !

The Serious Moonlight tour, quite frankly, is the only one I can recall
where everyone wanted to hear "the new stuff"...!?!.....you would hear
things like "I can't believe he didn't play Shake It."

Re: Bowie Generations new [re: Adam]  

The first thing I remember about Bowie was seeing a picture of him in some magazine and for some reason thinking he was a country singer. I guess that must have been around 1978 and I was twelve and he was wearing a hat, hence the confusion. I was first hooked on Bowie after watching the video for Ashes to Ashes on TV in february (?) 1981. I can say with confidence that no other music video has come even close to making such a strong impression on me. I immediately bought Scary Monsters which I played intensely for months. I think I was playing it on average three times a day all through the summer. It is by far the album I have played the most and still is my favorite rock album.

Then I bought Hunky Dory, Ziggy Stardust and Aladdin Sane packed together from a book club (I kid you not) that my mother was a member of. I was initially very disappointed since I expected something similar to Scary Monsters and was totally confused by this artist who made so extremely different albums. Next up was Low which really confused me too, especially side two which I found almost scary at the time. I am not sure whether I had more than half of his production before prior to Let's Dance so I my be a romantic or an 80's child. But I do remember buying "Heroes" a few weeks before Let's Dance was released.

What nice memories.
