One of my early adolescent idols…
Beat of the Day
Still one of my Rock and Roll idols .... thanks Alex!
My uncle Herve, mom's brother in Belgium, really turned me on to Bowie when I was 11 or something. I thought he was soooo cool. And this was Herve and his girlfirned--later his wife--'s favorite Bowie tune for the longest.
Must be the only one in the world who thinks Jones is a hugely over-rated copyist and yet the only one who liked Tin Machine.
I like some Bowie but it never really moves me. He's a bit of a cipher.
 I think that's partly by design.
Alex, good tune, but I could go for Panic In Detroit myself.
Also, c'mon, man, you do a rock'n'roll post the day after Alex Chilton dies and we get Bowie? As Bowie would say "Lookout, you rock'n'rollers!"
Alex C is up today...
