Trivia and Quotes

  • empty

    I had no idea just how many movies that David Bowie has appeared in. I think that his music is decent, though much too old for my taste, but I think that his acting is a tad better. Yes, he has really only had bit or small parts, but he's one of those "actors" that you just have to take for who he is--a musician that tries to act.
  • Legend.

    Ziggy played guitar, jamming good with Weird and Gilly

    The spiders from Mars. He played it left hand

    But made it too far

    Became the special man, then we were Ziggy's band

    Ziggy really sang, screwed up eyes and screwed down hairdo

    Like some cat from Japan, he could lick 'em by smiling

    He could leave 'em to hang

    Came on so loaded man, well hung and snow white tan.

    So where were the spiders while the fly tried to break our balls

    Just the beer light to guide us,

    So we bitcched about his fans and should we crush his sweet hands?

    Ziggy played for time, jiving us that we were voodoo

    The kids were just crass, he was the nazz

    With God given ass

    He took it all too far but boy could he play guitar

    Making love with his ego Ziggy sucked up into his mind

    Like a leper messiah

    When the kids had killed the man I had to break up the band.

    Oh yeah
