The Thin White Duke of Westminster?

Strange to see that young upstart and Brit award winner David Bowie weighing in to the Scottish referendum debate.
He usually leaves the politics to lesser talented egotistical self publicizing tossers like Sting and Bono (God's representative on Earth).
Obviously not a Rebel Rebel, resistant to Changes and reluctant to be a Hero!
Maybe he is feeling left out in the baubles stakes and wishes to join his chums Sir Mick and Sir Elton. Perhaps Noel Gallagher inadvertently gave the game away by  referring to him as Sir David Bowie.
We should be told!
All the above ramblings are really just a spurious excuse to share two criminally neglected songs from the great Aladdin Sane
I'd forgotten just how good this album is.

  2. Now, this: "and Bono (God's representative on Earth)" made my morning!!

    Thanks so much!

  3. He is a total bawbag.

    But did write some good tunes.

    (corrected version)

  4. I wonder what Drew wrote first time round....Anyway, is David Bowie the other act you've seen in Helensburgh?

    1. Not unless he was posing as an Americana band with a single female name!

  5. I actually wrote "writes some good tunes" then realised that that was factually incorrect as he hasn't written anything decent since 1986
