Rockin' my Bowie playlist.  Saw Bowie and Nine Inch Nails in Chicagoland sometime in the mid 1990s. I didn't know half the songs, the ones I did know I attributed to someone else.  In hindsight, some were probably covers, others were probably his songs that I knew from someone else (this was not long after Nirvana covered Man Who Sold the World). Heart's Filthy Lesson was getting some airtime around then, and of course I knew "Under Pressure" from the Vanilla Ice affair.

I didn't appreciate Bowie for his influence until a decade later.

I wonder if he will be cremated and shot into space?  Then he could be drifting in his tin can far above the world.

I'm going to guess that's the same tour I saw them in Austin for (since NiN was opening for Bowie).  My GF and I drove down for that and I imbibed just a little too much on Sixth Street.

Such an underrated movie.  Love most of Kevin Smith's work.

Good as the baddie in Quigley Down Under as well.  One of my favorite westerns.  Even if it is set in Australia.

“Lazarus” was also the name of Bowie’s off-Broadway musical.
