A few too many words in that fourth sentence. Feel free to edit. :-) Happy Halloween!

Pretty funny, the first words of the lead story in today's WSJ: "As the David Bowie song 'Heroes' blared from speakers in the ballroom of a Manhattan hotel, adman John Dooner Jr. introduced an inspirational video. The theme: moving forward in the days after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks." Dooner is the head of the what is described as the world's largest advertising holding company, Interpublic Group of Cos. Rest easy, says Dooner, the world will soon be safe for direct marketing will return. ;-) Reuters also noted the resurgence in popularity of Bowie's song in a review of Travis out in LA; the band did it in an encore. I have heard that some classic rock stations already are playing the version from the Concert for New York, though I haven't heard it since the broadcast. I'm sure we'll hear it more when the CD is released next month. And even if it's not the best version, that's still a very good thing, if for no other reason that airplay of the CoNY version will go a long way to reclaiming the song from the Satanic clutches of Microsoft and Jakob Dylan. ;-)

I am a big fan of Bowie's music but the rendition of 'Heroes' at the recent Concert for New York was frankly, awful. When it started I thought they were doing a country and western version it wasn't tight Bowie and the rhythm guitarist were out of tune; to here one of my favourite songs mutilated like this was disappointing. Next time David rehearse and with 'real' professionals

FYI: there's an interesting-appearing benefit Wednesday 6 PM-9PM  Cooper Classics Gallery 137 Perry Street (Between Greenwich & Washington). I don't know too many details--i.e., it may be really expensive--but it still seems like it may be worth investigating. Mick Rock is doing an exhibit. While a spartan release touts next year's book with Bowie and the current "Blood & Glitter," it notes this week's show and says simply "Rock's Oct.31st exhibit-a more personal show, never before seen work of Bowie, Lou Reed, Elvis, and the collages that are his reaction to 9/11, with portion of proceeds donated to New York Police and Fire Widows Fund." Anyway, the number to call if you're not watching Game 4 is 212-585-0973, which is Pitching Staff Public Relations.

Hiya, just a message to some friends out there who might be wondering if I'm still on the face of the earth (Jeaj, Alys, Kali etc): Yes I am, but I'm currently NOT online as I'm between flats and will be for a couple of weeks still (at least). Just bought a place of our own, so we'll be moving in, fixing it up and getting that connection up and running again in due time. I'll let you know :)

Meanwhile, Bowie looked great at the memorial concert, and sounded great too! So how 'bout it, Dave - care to dish out some music soon, you lazy bastard???

Sunshine on the wasteland, old man sitting in the white sand . My papa would have been proud to take a convoy of ice cream vans (four wheel drive of course) into Afghanistan. For so long there man have had toys as guns,when they should have had fights with buns and loverly armadoco flavored ice cream, but of course people are different now , there is nothing in their eyes, where do we go from here? the spirit has flown away for first time in 2000 years.

Yes, Bono and Edge of U2 were supposed to join Bowie Saturday. Check Townsend's diary. The reason they didn't play had to do with getting out of their last stop--I believe Baltimore--and to rehearsals here. Various scheduling issues pertaining to the U2 tour. It didn't work, and they dropped out and as reported sent a taped message. U2's fans are blaming anthrax threats. U2 opens at MSG tonight, three shows there and one in the Meadowlands over the next five or so nights. There have been some better-than-Propaganda seats available this week, so it may be worthing trying if you are interested. On Saturday's opener, Bowie's juxtaposition of a fair/circus melody--the U.S., let's face it, has been a bit of a playground/escape from UK for him--with his weathered vocal was really something else. Really moving, and a typical atypical Bowie deconstruction. And "Heroes," well, the crowd reaction said it all. Nice news on the recording too, but boy, I sure hope he's not planning on going on stage next year sans Sterling Campbell.

Bowie's biggest fan at Virgin, Nancy Berry, is out the door. Uh oh. The answer to the problem, of course, is Bonster, who Bowie really must have been channeling when he said his label boss was just "a rock n' roll girl." Bonster is still employed, does better Bowie PR on a far smaller (read: no) budget, and is way more a hottie. Who better to coordinate the almost hits? Happy birthday, DBfan!!

As for the benefit concert - I don´t know if Heroes will become as popular as "We are the world" (hm, is Cindy Lauper going to be there tomorrow? That song always remind me her...) but if Jagger and Bowie be together in the stage... what a blast it will be :) RaMOANA - sorry for suddenly leaving the chat the other night... something odd happened, like a ghost story, whew.

Just a bit more on the New York benefit show Saturday night Some news reports indicate the finale will be quite a surprise! Bowie reported to open the show with Heroes From the New York Post (and Sue) ROCK 'N' ROLL 'HEROES' TAP BOWIE TO OPEN ALL-STAR FUND-RAISER -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- David Bowie has been chosen to kick off the biggest rock 'n' roll party of all time at Madison Square Garden this weekend with a performance of his classic hit "Heroes" at the "Concert for New York." The Thin White Duke will set the mood for the all-star tribute and fund-raiser Saturday night for the fallen firefighters, cops and rescue workers of the World Trade Center disaster. Bowie's bow will begin an astounding line-up of musicians that include Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton, The Who, Billy Joel, Bon Jovi, Bono, James Taylor, John Mellencamp, Janet Jackson, the Backstreet Boys and Destiny's Child. Insiders predict the concert and the double-disc CD from the show that Columbia Records will put out could raise more than $200 million. Word is that Elton John will debut a tune for New York that will be just as emotional as the version of "Candle in the Wind" he performed at Princess Diana's funeral. Michael J. Fox, Adam Sandler, Mike Myers, Jimmy Fallon, Reese Witherspoon, Ryan Phillippe, Jim Carrey, Meg Ryan, Susan Sarandon, David Spade, Julia Stiles, Denis Leary and John Cusack will also be on stage. Premium tickets are still available through TicketMaster at prices of $2,000 to $10,000. VH1 will air the five-hour gala at 7 p.m., live without commercials, and flash a toll-free number, 1-888-NYMUSIC, for viewers to pledge donations. ++++ USA Today: McCartney joins VH1 benefit to 'help out' Firefighters' heroism stirs pride for 'me dad' By Edna Gundersen USA TODAY Paul McCartney, one of the leading attractions lined up for Saturday's all-star Concert for New York City, felt compelled to board VH1's benefit bandwagon for a variety of reasons: He loves New York. His father was a volunteer fireman in Liverpool during World War II. And Mayor Rudy Giuliani reactivated the job force. 'I've been ordered back to work by the mayor, and that's good enough for me,'' McCartney says. The ex-Beatle had planned a lavish concert in Russia to promote new album Driving Rain, due Nov. 13, then switched to the idea of a New York benefit concert after the Sept. 11 terror attacks. He gave up solo fundraising plans to join VH1's five-hour charity concert, airing at 7 p.m. ET (live)/PT (tape-delayed). He's on a bill with veterans John Mellencamp, Billy Joel, James Taylor, Bon Jovi, Jay-Z, Destiny's Child, Backstreet Boys, Macy Gray and U2's Bono and The Edge. ''It's a marathon, a bit of an epic,'' he says. ''The hope is to raise a lot of money and a few spirits. For me, it's a chance to stand up and be counted for democracy. A blow of this magnitude against freedom is unacceptable. I wanted to put my feelings somewhere and help out. ''I personally think music plays a big part in the healing process. People find solace and comfort in music. It can be good for your soul. As a kid, I remember how listening to an Elvis Presley record would instantly get rid of a headache.'' He considers the Brit-heavy marquee, which includes Mick Jagger, Elton John, The Who, Eric Clapton and David Bowie, a testament to the solidarity between the USA and the U.K. ''We are allies, and this will prove it one more time,'' says McCartney, who is impressed by the U.S. response to the attacks. ''The American government has been very sensible and measured in building a diplomatic and political alliance instead of rushing into something. Most of the world, including many Islamic nations, support this action.'' McCartney is mum about his benefit performance, except to say he hopes to introduce two songs from the new album. He's anticipating a moving experience for both performers and spectators. About 5,000 firefighters will be in the audience at Madison Square Garden. ''Just looking at them will be emotional,'' he says. Bound for England, McCartney and fiancée Heather Mills were on a plane at JFK Airport when the terrorists struck the World Trade Center. Their flight grounded, the couple stared helplessly as smoke poured from Manhattan. Forced to stay in New York, McCartney was touched by the heroism of rescue workers and reminded of his own father's bravery. ''It never really struck me before,'' he says. ''It was just me dad's job. But when the guys in New York were going into those buildings while everyone else was running away, I realized, gosh, my dad did that type of thing. Maybe it took this to awaken me. I felt so proud of him.'' In addition to his benefit appearance, McCartney will donate profits from new single From a Lover to a Friend, in stores Oct. 30, to New York's fire and police departments. +++++ PS. oops, the Tibet show I refered to in the last newsflash was early this year, not a year ago as I indicated...it just SEEMS like it...

A release just out from Miramax adds Jay-Z to Saturday's lineup, which is not final, a bunch more movie stars. But interestingly it strongly suggests--it may be a word processing error or misprint-like problem--that Bowie will be performing with Bono and the Edge. First I've seen of that, and as noted, it may not mean what it says. But that's what it says. The link I got of the release doesn't work, so I can't put it here. We'll know for sure soon enough.

I'm glad David is dragging himself from the nursery, sad that such fund raising is needed and disappointed that the other 'forgotten' victims in this whole horrible war-like situation seem to have been ignored. Not all Afganis are religious extremists or psychopaths. Most of them are just really poor, illiterate people wondering why their last 20 years have been punctuated by intense periods of bombings, starvation and crippling landmines in the back garden. Yes, the heroes of NY gave their lives unflinchingly. No doubt some of them were Muslims. I hope DB gives teh performance of a lifetime and doesn't forget the 'other' side

I wouldn't be surprised if it was an acoustic set, rancell. Although I can't really imagine how an acoustic set would carry over, especially at MSG. Perhaps it'll be like the Tibet House Benefit.

**if that is so, how fair is it to bring down the house before anyone else gets a chance?? ;-)** Pretty funny Bonster, and if it's true as Bowienet said, it's a great move by Bowie. If he waited, he'd be lost in the shuffle, buried by the bigger names. Now he can get the Garden in a frenzy with Heroes or Young Americans and have the TV audience's attention, which will not last for that long with such a long show and such a huge roster of arena-scale performers. If true, this could turn out to be a great performance opportunity for him. For us, well, it's not a tough ticket at all. Some really good seats available right now on TM, hours later, ... but for $5,000. If you just want to get in, there are $500 seats. The $250s, lowest on the scale, seem to be gone for now, but they are pretty bad anyway. Best bet: TV. Speaking of TV: Who is Bowie's band gonna be?

Hi there, if any "Lazy and Web-IMpaired" subscribers have not received a newsletter lately, it's cause I don't have your name anymore. Send a resubscribe to dbfan@aol.com In the meantime, here is a newsflash: Just a little taste of Bowie for starving fans coming up Saturday! Opportunity for worldwide viewing for this one!!! First opportunity to see Mr. B since the Tibet benefit show over a year ago. He is reportedly "opening" this New York Benefit show and if that is so, how fair is it to bring down the house before anyone else gets a chance?? ;-) In case you are a millionaire, VIP tickets are available for $2, $5 and $10 - that's THOUSAND for the show at robinhood.org There is some discrepancy on the start time, the VH-1 broadcast starts at 7 p.m. but other press reports the actual show starting at 8. Whatever the case, plan on tuning in at 7 p.m. so you don't miss anything. AOL isn't making clear yet if they are carrying the show open to ALL Internet users or just AOL. Either way, TV is the place to be for sure.... VH1, Cablevision, Miramax Films and AOL Announce the Addition of Bono and Edge of U2, David Bowie, Elton John, Destiny's Child, Janet Jackson Live Via Satellite, Harrison Ford, Selma Hayek, Will Farrell To 'The Concert for New York City' Which Will Be Telecast Live on VH1 on Saturday, October 20th Expands By An Hour Now Starts at a New Time 7:00 PM (ET/PT) From Madison Square Garden Select Additional Tickets to Be Released For Sale Tuesday, Oct. 16 The Concert For New York City' Is a One-Night-Only Fundraising Event to Benefit The Robin Hood Relief Fund Supporting Victims of the Sept. 11th Attack and to Honor the Heroic Rescue Workers NEW YORK, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- VH1, Cablevision, Miramax Films and AOL today announced the addition of Bono and Edge of U2, David Bowie, Elton John, Destiny's Child, and Janet Jackson who will be live via satellite.

Now, the Robin Hood Foundation, VH1, Cablevision, Miramax and AOL are organizing 'The Concert For New York City' to benefit the families of the brave firefighters, policemen and many others who lost their lives. On behalf of all New Yorkers, I want to thank the entertainment industry for using their unique talents to aid our recovery effort. Together, we will rebuild our lives and our City." All proceeds from "The Concert for New York City" will go to the Robin Hood Relief Fund which was established by the Robin Hood Foundation to meet the immediate and long-term needs of victims of the World Trade Center attacks. In particular, Robin Hood will help lower-income New Yorkers affected by the tragedy, while through its support of the Twin Towers Fund, it will aid the families of police, fire, and rescue workers who courageously gave their lives to help others. Robin Hood's Board of Directors underwrites all administrative costs ensuring that 100% of the money raised will go to those who need it most. AOL has made an unprecedented commitment to dedicate its entire U.S. customer service support team, one of the largest in the world, to take calls and Internet donations during the live event.

Ken Berry is out at Virgin, Nancy will probaby follow, maybe immediately. Bet on roster pruning, but who knows how it affects what we listen to. Maybe not at all. After all, they need a new, releasable record anyway, and hopefully the date on that has been accelerated, label upheaval notwithstanding. Did you see that Macy Gray crash-and-burn on SNL? What's the story there?

Sorry to learn the TW Fan has been ill and hope he is well again Even i am too sad, my parents are no more alive to cry for it. One evening, I saw 2 men in my steet with the paperback Bowiestyle in hands, it was like unreal... One morning, I saw a handsome young man in the sunshine, smiling to me on my pavement... Funny, he physically reminds me David Bowie... One winter, I met young people in Switzerland, probably groupies of David Bowie... Well, he flies like an eagle through years in my life... I like his life, his marriages, his taste for art ; I am not jaleous of his wives but his place is in my heart and not only on my mind. One boy made me forget my love for David, but it was an illusion, it didn't work between us and I went back towards David Bowie and his art : Maybe, he will read this and be happy about it. I would have liked to meet him when I was 14, like a bride with him- I was for the 1st time in England- him having already played the Ziggy character. It makes me peaceful one month after the air crash in NY to say what there is in my heart : i have leisure time to say my deep love for our dear David Bowie, sharp like a knife in my heart. Kali was right to write about the remembrance of this tragic event. Well, TW people in US are probably still asleep at this time on this Sunday : 9 a.m. ? I didn't want a heavy amount of cold words but a bunch of heat towards David Bowie because he deserves this sea of love, being so great.

Nice to find again your site : I have been in Hospital during months. Tried to join Erdal Kizilcay wwith an e-mail given by you and failed. Sorry : I was not "zen" at all at this time, now just want to meet him, because he looks so attractive. Hello to the member of TW Einar of Scandinavia, I wrote to him once and found him interesting Your site is as good as before, thanks and have a nice day. I loved Low album and instrumental tracks, the symphony Low with Philip Glass and think All saints is a good idea. Saw the film Moulin Rouge with the track Diamond dogs, it is like a dream Nicole Kidman like a glittering star in this place

Keep your ears open on October 11th at noon: Bagpipers (such as myself) from around the world have been asked to play the bagpipes at noon (in their timezone)as a jesture of support of the victims and their families of the September 11th terrorist attacks and as a show of support against the evil of terrorism. Pipers in just about every timezone will be playing, so there will be nearly 24 hours of bagpipes playing. Wherever we are, at work, school, or home, we've been asked to play. I'll be at work playing in the courtyard. A friend of mine will be at Ground Zero playing. This has nothing to do with Bowie, but I thought I'd post it anyway. Cheers.

The Wonderworld site, speaking of accuracy, has the performers and the rumored performers for the MSG benefit so mixed up and contorted that its news item is beyond hope. Check Billboard; the most recent one it has done is as of Tuesday: http://www.billboard.com/billboard/daily/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1068427. Last night at Irving Plaza, a star was born. Ryan Adams. You gotta see this guy while he's in small venues, though with music the way it is now, who knows, it may be very hard for him to take the next step. Amazing show, great material much better live than on the new one, "Gold." So many jaded industry types, and rarely do they appear to enjoy themselves as much as they did last night. Elton John played two songs with Ryan, jamming on "Rocketman." The place went nuts, and you gotta figure, jaded industry types aren't really prone to going nuts over Elton anymore. They did, and so did I.

And if you want a really negative, I mean vicious, innuendo-laden account of a Bowie "appearance," check out how Richard Neer insinuates that Bowie and drugs ruined a great Iggy show at the Ritz way back when in Neer's terrific new book about WNEW-FM and its ilk, "FM : The Rise and Fall of Rock Radio." Neer is now a fine sports talk radio host on WFAN, an oasis in a sea of right-wing screamers, but his description of Bowie and Bowie's conduct as the primary illustration of how drug use negatively affected rock--although it was Iggy who was on drugs--is probably one of the nastiest things I've read about Bowie and his obsessive stardom. And all Neer does is describe Bowie's entrance into the club and his disappearance into the back ... and Iggy's sad second set. I really like the book (I'm not done yet), but I think this portrait was unfair--as much as Bowie may deserve it--because he never says he saw Bowie distribute drugs backstage. Some of the language in the passage is beyond loaded. My guess is that Villard's attorneys must have looked at the chapter very very closely, 'cause it's borderline, even with regard to a public figure who embraces such publicity appearances as much as, well, Iggy embraced drugs.

Dean of rock critics Robert Christgau stretches himself in the new Village Voice to write the first positive things he has had to say about Bowie in a long time (decades?). The Loser's Lounge tribute is a "shortlist" Voice Choice in the music category for this week's entertainment. Here's what he writes: "The honoree has written many classics and much shit, the perfect combo for the oldest permanent floating crap game in New York. His lifetime of costume changes guarantees that the fashion sense of the Lounge's golden-voiced also-rans will run wild. Nor does it hurt that he lives only a mile or two from the crap game's current semipermanent location, and hence may show up to take a peek--if only on his tireless quest for new ideas." Bobby C. is now well past 50 and smiling on 60 years old. He should know better than to boost the efforts of people he admires, perhaps even his friends, by hinting at guest appearances. Christgau should know--it's his freakin' job, whether he hates Bowie or not--that Bowie has been approached for similar review shows at the Bottom Line involving many of the same performers, at least informally, and hasn't bothered. It's bad enough these venues and promoters float this stuff themselves. Yeah, there's LL precedent for this, and yes, Bowie has recorded with a performer or two in the show. But as terrific as LL is, this is a bunch of covers, and some of them are done for laughs. Bowie can feel free to prove me wrong, Lord knows we won't mind, but if he preserved "Heroes" from last night's terrific Lennon tribute, he's not gonna waste his time watching the Laughing Gnome done in a theater. That's our job. ;-) BTW: Christgau's guide to the 90s, out fairly recently, doesn't even review "hours....," Outside, or Earthling. He just put a little cannonball (AKA a bomb) next to the listing. Buddah is unmentioned. He does do his customary paragraph on BTWN, notes that it has some of the artist's most interesting musical ideas in years, but was wrecked by his singing. Christgau didn't bother with it at the time, but this review appears years later repeating almost word for word what Daily News critic Jim Farber said in 1993. Anyway, Bob goes on to mention BTWN's business history, the label bankruptcy, and calls it the most ignominious major artist comeback in history, paraphrasing by me. So while he can take the time out to read other reviews and recall them, I guess he didn't bother to check how the album did everywhere other than his doorstep. ;-)

Boy, never believe what you read on the Internet: Ian did NOT make it to the Bottom Line last night. The first report I heard was very incorrect. Apologies. Still, it sounds like it was a fun event. Ian is adding dates to his US tour. See www.ianhunter.com.

Hadn't seen this one before: the "Now That's What I Call Music!" series is releasing a every-song-you-ever-wanted two-CD set Christmas collection 10/23, and the Bowie/Bing song is being highlighted in a press release. From that release: "each of the previous seven albums in the "NOW That's What I Call Music!" series, begun in 1998, has reached the Billboard Top 10. They are the only non-soundtrack collections to do so, with the most recent four hitting #1." Wow, Moulin Rouge in the first half of the year, now this. Compilation fever.

Alys, from U2's site yesterday: "The third and final leg of Elevation 2001 kicks off on Wednesday, October 10th at Notre Dame and U2 will be joined by special guest Garbage (in South Bend, Montreal, Hamilton, Chicago, Baltimore and New York City), by Stereophonics (in East Rutherford, Providence and Philadelphia) and by No Doubt (in Austin, Denver, Salt Lake City, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas)." On TM yesterday, the first night at MSG was Garbage, the second night was No Doubt, and the third was the Stereophonics. And no opener was listed for the next show, in New Jersey. I think U2 is slightly more reliable. :-) Ian Hunter showed up last night at the Bottom Line for the free show, along with a lot of other people. I haven't yet heard what he did, but I know the show went on for hours.

Four more area U2 shows on sale this morning, and again, almost no good seats. Yeah, there were some lower levels at MSG, in fact quite a few--at the opposite end of the arena, or behind the stage. I wouldn't mind that if the Propaganda tix were any good. I'll be shocked if they are. Maybe this time, some good seats will be released right before the show, which definitely was the way to go--everywhere other than here--last spring. If you're in NYC today, definitely consider stopping by the Bottom Line early evening. The doors open at 5:30 for a free show, a tribute to NYC, with some pretty big names being kicked around as performers. I know for sure I'll see a 70s associate of Mr. Bowie, 'cause I'll be at Giants Stadium tonight where Luther V. is scheduled to sing two songs before the Jets game. ;-)
