I’m roughly the same generation as him so his observations about those times tends to fit in with mine. As the narrative moves into the 80’s and beyond his comments become sketchy...probably because there is less Morely can write about albums like Tonight, Tin Machine or BTWN.
There is a very interesting book waiting to be published about this period. For a preview read the relevant entries from Chris O’Leary’s blog ‘Pushing Ahead of the Dame’ ... I think ‘Ashes to Ashes’ will be published this year. I assume it will follow the format of ‘Rebel Rebel’ (chronological song entries) but it should also read well as a biography.

I finished the Morley book tonight - and really liked it. I mean, it’s not for non Bowie fans. Younhave to be happy and agreeable to such a level of obsession- and I am. And as I’m generally not interested in the intense level of detail about the making of albums that I don’t LOVE - his non 70s output basically - then I didn’t mind the dip in detail.
You come at the Queen, you best not miss.

The lass and I had a Bowie night with a friends kids. They're 15 and 17 and big Bowie fans so we watched the Ziggy Stardust film and The Man Who Fell To Earth.

They were very excited to see Bowies willy :lol:

I've taken the decision.

I'm bored of the twat and the misery he deals in.
