I don't blog much 

Bowie

Well wishes to David Bowie; news today that he went in for unplanned heart surgery. I’d seen the original reports of him seeking treatment for a “pinched nerve in the shoulder” and figured that was just a way of saying “this is private, please don’t worry.” But this is more than private, because Bowie’s talent is a gift to the world, and I’d surely be sorry to lose it early, though he’s given us so much already. Heathen and Reality (his latest two albums) are both regular presences on my CD player, and the 5.1 surround Heathen disc is by far the best sacd ever…not that there’s more than 5 or 6 sacds out yet, crap aside, but still the point is he’s so good right now at this stage of his recording career, it would be a shame for earth to lose him.
