sad sad sad day….
Yes, he was generous and brilliant right up to the end.
A giant tree in the forest of music is overturned… 😦
Yes, indeed. Very sad tonight.
I rememeber you and I had this David Bowie conversation going on a few years ago: https://cardinalguzman.wordpress.com/?s=david+bowie
Yes, we also did a Bowie Week as I recall. ☺
Well said Herr Drage.
Have you heard the new album, Cardinal?
“Something happened on the day he died
Spirit rose a metre and stepped aside
Somebody else took his place, and bravely cried
(I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar)
How many times does an angel fall?
How many people lie instead of talking tall?
He trod on sacred ground, he cried loud into the crowd
(I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar, I’m not a gangstar)”
He dared walk through the wilderness rather than take the main road as many do.
No, I haven’t. Only the old stuff. Great musician and my first ever concert experience.
That is such a perfect out of space and time image.
Thank you, my friend.
A legend, he will be missed. Great tribute.
Yes, indeed. Thanks very much, Stevie.
Farewell Major Tom . . . .
Lovely tribute, Richard. His death seems to have left many of us shocked and sad.
Thanks very much, Ashley. Yes, I don’t think I could imagine him ever dying. He was a one-off.
I purchased the new ‘black star’ album on Friday morning, listened to it many times over the weekend… And then, this morning, was absolutely shocked and saddened when the headlines flashed across my computer screen. The coffee was still brewing and I was not fully awake yet– Certainly not ready for such news. His music has played in the background [For me] during so many days and nights since the eighties, it really sucks. The elusive layers of symbolism in both the ‘black star’ and ‘Lazarus’ videos make much more sense watching them again today, though [Once you understand he was creating them while knowing that he was terminal].
It’s a sad day
But a master of our time
Yes, absolutely. I can’t listen to the album without feeling very sad – it was a very generous last (public) gesture on his part. He was the soundtrack to a big part of my life.
Yes, I fully agree with you / know what you mean… On a side note, it was recently brought to my attention that the title song is a reference to an old Elvis Presley song called ‘Blackstar,’ not sure if you were aware of that or not, they actually had the same birthday as well.
That’s really interesting – I’ll have to check the Elvis track out.
❤ ❤ ❤
Thank you, Hedy!
Know what you mean…
Subtle, understated, a nice tribute.
Thanks very much, Richard.
Most apt tribute in a single shot. Have you seen Darkstar on YouTube yet?
Thanks very much. Yes, it’s really interesting – the second single’s video is brilliant. Don’t think there’ll ever be another one like him.
Yes a genius artist that has become legend.

Thanks very much, Douglas!
Richard, you’re welcome!
Love this tribute.
Thanks very much, Elena – glad you like it. Still feel quite sad about this – I’ve never mourned a celeb before, it’s odd.
It sure was a sad sad day… He meant a lot to a lot of us…
I’m proud to own and almost listened his albums until they broke 💙
Yes, indeed – my LPs are pretty worn down too. Been playing them since I was 13, so they’ve done well… 🙂
Such a legend, and a shocking loss. Great tribute here.
Yes, indeed – the only celebrity I ever felt sad about really. An artist to the end. Thanks very much, Lemony.
