In reply to:
Incidently Kati how long have you been an actual fan of his music? I take it the fascination with the man himself came after the music yes?
I think I've talked about this in a few occasions... But I'll try to keep it short. I think it all started with Heathen, so I'm still pretty new with this I bought it in Athens in the summer, and I think it had come out some time earlier. I loved it (yes instantly, and I still do, so there's another exception) After that I got the Best of -album. Then I got that David Buckley's book for my birthday, and at the same time I was reading it, the Free Record Shop started having this campaign with 2 cd:s for 20€ with most of Bowie's albums in that sale too, so reading the book, I ended up bying albums. And after the concert here in Helsinki, there was just no turning back
So... As I've said before, I think I've been fascinated by Bowie before. I've always loved his voice. And when I was 16 or 17 I bought Black Tie White Noise on tape, because I thought Jump They Say was such a cool video, and I also liked the song. I guess the album just didn't impress me enough at the time, although lately I've been listening to it quite a lot. A few years later I saw "Heroes" on sale and bought it out of curiosity. I liked it, but not enough. Not nearly as much as I do now! And then came Heathen...
So, I'd say that I didn't know much about his music before. I'd mostly heard these Let's Dance and China Girl and all those. But something about Bowie, without even knowing anything about his past, made me interested. He was just so good looking and, as I said, I LOVE the voice... So... This answer became quite long... I don't know. Probably because of his incredible career and great albums, it wasn't as easy to just forget about him that fast.
Vanity is all
