So many legends gone within a year. This one of the biggest. A sad day.

Very very sad... :cry:

Thanks a lot for what you shared with us since 1964, Mr Bowie, that was great art.

I remember David Bowie of the song Jean Genie and Rebel Rebel.

Best song (imo) :

some humor and laugh :

And there is also the connection to Edgar Froese :

Quote:
In the mid-seventies David Bowie and Iggy Pop came to Berlin.
Edgar and Monika Froese helped them at various stages, up to TD sharing their Berlin rehearsal stage built in an old theatre with both of them.
There was even talk between David Bowie, Edgar Froese and Brian Eno of some musical collaboration, but there no publicly known musical output of this period.


More info concerning David Bowie, Edgar Froese

Its a great loss.
There is an exhibition about David Bowie in Groningen,, The Netherlands
for those who feel the need to visit :
http://www.groningermuseum.nl/tentoonstelling/david-bowie

Did took a visit 4 weeks ago, my personal interst was to find something about Hauptstrasse 155 in Berlin.
No mention at all about Edgar Froese.
Exposed the synth which Brian Eno handed over to David Bowie.

David Bowie might meet Edgar on his cosmic adress :)

For those NOT on Facebook, this was posted by Jerome Froese today:

In the years 1976 - 78 David Bowie and his family were recurring guests at our apartment in Berlin Schöneberg (Schwäbische Strasse 7).
While the adults were in deep conversation I have often played with his son "Zowie" for many hours.
On my seventh birthday in 1977, David brought me a "Mechanical Mighty Robot from Noguchi" as a birthday present,
saying: "It's a friend of Major Tom".

Thanks for your music and memories Mr. Bowie.

RIP

Some good info this. I just bought Low (and several other albums). Looking forward to listen more to Warszawa and other songs.
Intriguing artist that will be missed!

Bianca wrote a very nice message on TD's official Facebook.
That's here : https://www.facebook.com/TANGERINEDREAM.OFFICIAL/

Bowie is already missed today. And I think Blackstar will be considered as an important album.
