Re: Post of the week [re: theidiot2]  

In reply to:

Gimme Danger should have been called Dirt.


I've noticed an annoying trend in musical bios of rock stars Bowie has collaborated with - namely, the propensity of the author to slag Bowie off and make frankly ridiculous judgements of the man. In Gimme Danger, Joe Ambrose criticises Bowie throughout and makes the claim that Bowie "never strayed from British mainstream pop" or something like that. I read a Lou Reed biography years ago (I think it was called Waiting for the Man) and the author claimed that, unlike Lou Reed, Bowie never rearranged the styles of his songs from one tour to the other (!!). Even Victor Bockris' otherwise excellent Lou Reed: The Biography makes the ill-advised claim that time has judged Reed's Rock & Roll Heart album as being superior to Bowie's Station To Station, released in the same year. You might be the only person who got on that boat, Victor...
