In the Jones oral bio, Garson's attitude is, "Well, I never did drugs, ever, and...well, David didn't call me for years. Then he acted weird when I'd say something."

I'm not one for tributes or covers etc, but this (Dutch, soz) sounds promising: a live tribute and reinterpretation of Blackstar at the Holland Festival, with vocals by Laetitia Sadier, Anna Calvi and Anja Plaschg (Soap&Skin). The newly arranged music will be performed by stargaze, a classical ensemble that I only know because they performed with Owen Pallett at Berghain some years ago.

three weeks pass...

Came on my music player today after listening to another album and...wasn't prepared. I haven't listened to it in about two years but, God, what a great, elegiac yet defiant piece of work this album is. Bowie Forever.

I think this is Bowie's career masterpiece and I'm sure he was aware he was dying while recording it and maybe writing it as well; which begs the question of whether it's a better album with him knowing that; would it have happened if he hadn't known he was dying; what if he didn't know he was dying and made something god awful
