Just wondering what your loved ones think of Mr Bowie? Did a member get you in to him? Any of you tried to get your kids in to him and with which songs/albums?
There's different levels of interest, but they all like him. Funnily enough, my 2 sisters are like polar opposite Bowie fans. My older sister (31) loves Outside and Earthling (only albums she owns!) and I could probably get her interested in the other CD's quite easily, but my younger sister (25) is narrow-minded and annoying regarding him. She only owns ChangesBowie and when I try to play some album tracks she hasn't heard, she starts moaning and says she wont enjoy them if she doesn't know them. I hate that attitude... >_<
And I as I was just telling Pablo on MSN, my dad was a big Bowie fan... he even recorded Labyrinth so me and my sisters could watch it as children! However, he died of cancer when I was 16 and I only got in to him properly last year when I was 20. It makes me so sad that he died before I truly got became a fan. I would've loved to have discussed Bowie with him and introduced him to his newer stuff. It really breaks my heart; I was very sad when he passed away, but it's now I'm older and I've realised we shared such similar interests that his death really hurts me.
My mum is also a fan and owns albums like Aladdin Sane and Let's Dance on tape, but it's not really the same. Oh well, less of the negativity. Tell me some of your own tales.
