David Bowie: RIP…and Take Your Music With You

Nobody Flashes

Okay, I can’t help myself. This is probably one of the meanest things I will ever write outside of politics.

David Bowie died, and like Charlie Sheen, some of us out in common sense land have NO idea why all the fuss.

He was a notorious drug addict, a sex addicted narcissist, who, like Obama, knew the right powerful people to become successful.

To me, his music sucked. First: His vocal range was short of middle C to maybe Bb. VERY limited. An elephant has more range.

His chords in all his music are so BORING and so repetitious you almost needed to be on drugs to listen to them.

His MAIN talent, was…inventing new looks for himself to keep him on the fashion pages, as the NEW bi-sexual, gay, no…womanizer, no…genius…oh look…he’s such a genius…

WHAT? In what? Even Andy Warhol had more talent and that’s not saying much.

No, he couldn’t sing, but neither could Bob Dylan, so I always turned his songs off whenever I heard them. Bob Dylan at least recorded some decent stuff, even though he couldn’t sing.

His music was to me…how can I say this: It was like waking up to a breakfast of eggs, filled with cigarette ashes. YUK.

It just goes to show you how far we have fallen to say someone is a ‘genius.’ From Beethoven, to Bowie. Really? REALLY?

Even some of the rap music is better.

To be fair, maybe he had some good songs and I never heard them because I hated the HITS he had so much, I stayed away from anything he ever wrote. Thank GOD I never had to sing or play him in all the forty years I was in music.

He made Donna Summers look like Bach.

Bowie…was a marketing genius.  But genius musician? Uh….sorry.

Not in my Nobody Opinion. Bowie

  1. Labyrinth is basically a Muppet Movie. I’m just simple-minded so I like it 🙂

  2. So nice to hear someone else thought (about his music) as I do – I didnt know about the drugs etc – after all, I am an African, and we just dont hear these kinds of things out here!

    • Uh…never heard it. Sounds like a Greek tragedy.

      If you send me one of those bathtubs and a trip on your plane to Alaska, I promise to put in a good review.
