RIP David Bowie. Time IS waiting in the wings. He was such a talented writer, actor and singer. I had the opportunity to see him officiate at the Berklee College of Music graduation ceremony in 1997. He was bestowed an honorary doctorate. His sense of humor and kind words to each of the graduates and his willingness to mug for photos with each and every one of them made me respect him even more than I had. His latest record, released on his birthday, January 8th, opens with a song called "Lazarus." The opening line is, "Look up at me, I'm in heaven." He knew his end was near. He will be missed by his fans around the globe. Godspeed, David.

Yes, another of the great influential artists that covered a lot of musical territory.

I had just watched "Ziggy Stardust", the movie that was made from the '73 farewell concert on the 8th.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ASitcSAk330

I confess my primary motive for watching was to watch Mick Ronson play guitar yet again.

Bowie always managed to assemble some truly exceptional musicians; Ronson and Spiders from Mars, Earl Slick, Stacey Hayden and the Station 2 Station tour band with Tony Kay, Reeves Gabrel and the Hunt brothers, and worked with Robert Fripp and Brian Eno; toured in Iggy's band.....and that duet with Bing Crosby......and even narrated a version of Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf.

I think Mick Ronson was one of the best guitar players of his generation. He elevated David Bowie from a Donovan style folk singer to the mega-star he became. Mick also passed away too soon (1993) of the same type of cancer that David had. He was the arranger for his most popular and successful LP's of the early 70's. "Life on Mars" stripped of the vocals is an incredible symphonic arrangement. He was also responsible for "Jack and Diane" by John "Cougar" Mellencamp as well as "Aimee" by Pure Prairie League. He was a classically trained musician who was always uncomfortable in the limelight. I saw him in a small club in the early 80's. He had a group called the New York Yanqui's, featuring Shane Fontaine on guitar and Kip Wells on drums. Kip went on to play with Steve Forbert and Shane toured with the Boss on his 1993 tour. I know the video of which you speak. It is of terrible quality. Mick Ronson is worth enduring all of that. You know your stuff. Jim in Boston

For me, The Eagles 7 Bridges Road was always at the top of my list. Recently I was introduced to the original of this song. Written and recorded in 1968 by Steve Young a well known folk singer. Forward to the 70's and Ian Mathews along with Mike Nesmith transformed the original into what is thought by most, to be an Eagles original.

Soup -- Stickmen

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=33wQupFvcoE

They've got a supercollider near Geneva
so big it reaches under France
You know a supercollider shoots particles
so scientists can watch them dance.

They built a supercollider down in Texas
twenty miles of tunnels they could pave.
Cost so much to make they never finished it
They should have rented it out and had a rave.

I want a supercollider for my birthday
I've got a big basement I could fit it in.
I'll have you all come over for a party, we can go downstairs and take that sucker for a spin

I don't know how to drive a supercollider and I don't think they want to have me in the loop but I know they better keep it to the speed limit or we could all meet up in a cup of primordeal soup.

Soup!

This is so cool!!!

If you are a Foo Fighters fan like I am, then this is going to blow your mind!
Even if your not a Foo Fighters fan, this will still blow your mind!

Okay this is the setup story, of what your about to see.
In Italy, in the town of Cesena, one thousand people gathered together.
Singers, guitar players, drummers, you get the idea, the Rockin 1000 was born.
They all played their instruments of choice, to the Foo Fighters song "Learn To Fly"
In a attempt to try and get the real Foo Fighters to come and do a concert there in Italy.
And the good news is it worked!!
Over 30,000,000 million views on this, so you know it's got to be good!

"Learn to Fly"
By he fans at Cesena,Italy THEY ROCK!!!
https://youtu.be/JozAmXo2bDE

And Foo Fighters (Dave Grohl) First class response to this amazing musical plea.
I hope you understand Italian.
