I greatly admired Bowie - soundtrack to my yoof and iconic artist - but I hate the hystrionics on sochal meedya.

It's very sad and worthy of attention, yes - but there's no merit in public displays of 'grief'

Someone I haven't heard from in months messaged me because she was overwhelmed by the 'heartlessness' of another friend's response to her needy call for support in her Bowie-less woe fest and now they've fallen out. I presume she's awash with wine and tears and got her head stuck in a speaker bawling along to 'Wild is the Wind' - I won't be responding because I think that sort of behaviour is fucking certifiable.

Let them eat rich, expensive, funny-shaped, yellow, eggy buns.

Shhhh! they'll hear you.

At least he might give Beeber and Adele a good thrashing over the next month, give noobs an idea of what proppa talent sounds like. (Lemmy should also have a go).

To be fair Adele wrote some nice songs, and can tell a story through a song, with emotion. Bieber is a talentless berk

There was a campaign to get Ace of Spades to No1 after Lemmy's death. I heard it got to No2 but checking the charts now, it is currently No13.

I was bored and decided to update my signature but i couldnt think of anything to put, so i decided to just put Bollocks!

I never said her writing was bad, it's her sqwarbling that needs tweaking.

Bit hard on his family maybe? Saying that I guess they knew his wishes ahead of time.

In line with his wishes, no family or friends were present at the ceremony in the city where he had lived for much of his life

Better thathis cancer ridden carcass go up in smoke and relatives reminisce on better times. Though his last couple of videos will fuck that up.

Ashes to Ashes

No need for a ceremonial funeral of any sort - family can hold a private memorial any way they choose with or without the mortal remains.

Bit harsh if his family or friends didnt have the chance to say goodbye to him, but if thats what Bowie's wishes were then fair enough.

They all probably knew anyway (those closest to him) otherwise it's nobody's business.

Even though he went quietly that'll probably cause more of a fuss than if he'd had a televised funeral, there will still be endless programs about him, some sort of services, he'll live on.

Sad loss. I was never a major fan but he wrote some great stuff. Aladdin Sane is a great album, as is Hunky Dory. Watched the haunting Lazarus video the other day, dark but very good. And that last photo on his birthday, you could never guess he was going to die in a few days.

RIP Legend :splif:

Almost certainly carried a Bowie knife on him (you know, something about 9 inches long, built for stabbing), but what the fuck has he got to do with David ?
