Re: Morrissey: Bowie was only relevant by accident
I absolutely agree. Bowie was a ground breaking phenomena in the 70's. After the 80's went how they went, he's never been anything but a shadow of the 70's. The only thing that makes the new stuff worth listening too is that it refers to the old stuff in a way: The voice is quite the same, the melodies does some classic turns, and the lyrics are basicly about the same old themes.
If I hadn't heard the old stuff first, I don't think I would have liked him.
