When I was young I consumed mass quantities rum, after about a half bottle or so I would play Bowies Chant of The Ever Circling Skeletal Family and bounce off the walls.
I quit drinking about 25 years ago easily, got tired of the hangovers.

I was pretty bummed about the news this morning. Luckily we have the tunes to remember him by.

This is one of my faves done by him.

I hear ya Ron. First tune I thought of, was "Panic In Detroit".
Heard Mott's "All The Young Dudes" on my way out for
pizza tonight, and shed a tear. Was a huge fan of David Bowie
and Mott the Hoople back in the 70s.

I heard this on the radio when it broke early in the morning, just turned 69, too young to go...damn cancer.

The classic rock station played an hour of just his hits...another station played all his songs in 10 hours.

Heard the news as my daughter and I were driving onto Edwards AFB, watching the stunning sunrise over the High Desert. We were shocked and saddened but then began singing Bowie songs.

This one was played loud:

I was just gonna post that it was Bowie that gave "All the young dudes" to Mott the Hopple and kick started them to fame, when i read your post.

Mott was/is one of my favorite bands of all times!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You don't see them mentioned much, let alone on a model engine forum!!!! I Love This Forum! This Site Rocks!

When I heard I remembered Mick Ronson that died in his 40's of cancer. Another one of those reunions in the hereafter I suppose.
One of the first rock shows I saw on TV was the Ziggy Stardust show where he announces his retirement at the end of the performance. Modern theatre originating in front of my eyes. I was way more moderate in my costume as a singer, but loved the whole Bowie/Mott/TRex/NYDolls glitter thing as well as the Peter Gabriel costume dramatics that went on in that early 70's era. Many friends went the whole way. Platform boots and make up. Bowie was a big influence for sure. He's kind of the first of the biggies to go, and I knew it would start soon as almost everyone is in their 70's now from that era. When Jon Lord died at 71, I saw Ian Hunter's birthday was soon to be 70 and that was 4 years ago. Oh well, all part of life...

Oh mommy! Chris and Mark, you're killin' me.
Was a huge Mott and David Bowie fan in the 70's.
I was at the Uris Theater when "Mott Live" was recorded.
Queen(first time in the states) opened, and the encore of
"All The Young Dudes" featured Freddy Mercury  singing all the
Bowie backup bits.
If that wasn't enough, between sets, there was a trained
dog act in the lobby.
What a night. Thanks for the memory rush guys.
Bob

Sorry Chris, misstep on the +1, I'll try to fix it.

I also added a greenie...i've done that too by accident.

You guys know, but those that don't, the Queen song 'Now I'm Here' has the line "Down in the city, just Hoople and me" is a shout out to Mott The Hoople, the two bands once toured together.
