Old School Music Friday...

Let me start by saying I love Rock music, the subject of this week's meme. I really love 90's rock; Stone Temple Pilots, Nirvana, U2, etc. But my secret fave is the 70's Rock, just like my favorite music just period is 70's Soul.

Fleetwood Mac, Todd Rudgren, Queen...loves it! But there was always something about this dude that has always appealed to me. His different style of music, dress, even his choice of spouse...everything about him just grabbed me from when I was a kid until now. I saw him on an old Dick Cavett show from the early 70's recently, and was shocked by how painfully shy he used to be....he was so super ethereal looking, he really did look like he might be a real Ziggy Stardust. My man was fresh to death, tho....he even had a pimp cane/walking stick when he came out with a velvet suit.

He is a Rock Star in every sense of the word, but all of the best rock stars have tons of soul....I saw a video he made in the 70's and a superfat Luther Vandross was one of his backup singers...and his wife has the soul of Africa. And speaking of soul, here is a video link of him on Soul Train (wanted to post it, but embedding for this one was disabled...damn!): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uB3G5dxx0zU. Love the dance moves to the Bowie, haha.

I don't know what it is about this song, but I adore it--check it:



Just had to post some of his ummm...interesting fashion choices:


(oddly enough, this perm was the most disconcerting for me of the pix)



Check out my other OSF fam too!

David Bowie is The Man though I didn't really take an interest in him until the 80's.

This is one of those times I know we were sisters in another life, because I posted his duet with Queen, Under Pressure...

Kim said...

David Bowie was always on some other planet to me. I use to love "Fame" and of course his 80s stuff was the business! Happy OSF!

Regina said...

Happy OSF! What a great choice! I love Bowie, the 80's was his time!

Have a great weekend!

Davids Bowie was the deal. He could really have done (and did) any style of music. I was crazy about his song Modern Love back in the day.

Happy OSF!

David Bowie is that dude! Love your choice!

Those pics made me giggle! I love somebody that says "fuck it...I am who I am..."

"Etheral looking" is so kind, he looked like a beautiful woman, he is prettier than his wife, but somehow still sexy.

I'm a fan, too. This song is like Parliament meets Queen...
