OK Thaiga. Sorry when anyone dies. (Particularly from violence and wars).
Sky News have driven me mad today with their usual overdosing.
Mr Bowie not IMHO much of a great musical talent - his singing is a nightmare for me.
Some or a few of DB songs are great songs - I'm sorry he has been sick and died but to see him as a great musical talent is a big jump for me.
A total poser with his 'look at me' stuff.
Personally what one reads about him and his ex-wife and drugs etc. only God can judge.
But R.I.P.

Thaiga no offence - good reporting.
But to correct any impression one might get in the wider media - it's not Mahatma Gandhi who has died.
Or anyone remotely similar.
The World is falling apart right left and center, children starving, adults starving, The Mid East in chaos, the EU falling apart on many fronts, the World economy in tatters and ad nauseam but all we have for news is the passing of this dear no doubt, departed Bozo 24/7. Now that must get me a grump award !
IMHO again the Heng Band at Check Inn on Fridays are immeasurably better than DB ever was
R.I.P. and pip pip !

Hi roger,

no offence - of course not m8 - i never realy liked his music - there was only one track that was remotely catchy to me, that was, "lets dance". But a lot of people liked his music, from beckingham to bucks eh!. R.I.P.  Good luck
