My joke is a picture of David Bowie on his balcony in the '70s in a suit in Paris, and unless that's you, I'm not interested.

I think that's an important thing.Scott Weiland Bowie's Sayings By Scott Weiland: One thing that has really influenced me with Bowie where I've taken an approach from
Strangely, some songs you really don't want to write. I didn't like writing 'Heathen'. There was something so ominous and final about it. It was early in the morning, the sun was rising and through the windows I could see two deer grazing down below in the field. In the distance a car was driving slowly past the reservoir and these words were just streaming out and there were tears running down my face. But I couldn't stop, they just flew out. It's an odd feeling, like something else is guiding you, although forcing your hand is more like it.David Bowie Bowie's Sayings By David Bowie: Strangely, some songs you really don't want to write. I didn't like writing 'Heathen'. There

Who the fuck has a hedge maze in a residential neighborhood?" "This woman's parents," said Piotr. "Aside from that . . . serial killers, presumably.

"Right,Seanan McGuire Bowie's Sayings By Seanan McGuire: Who the fuck has a hedge maze in a residential neighborhood?" "This woman's parents," said
I got really bored, so I decided to pick a theme song! Something appropriate. And naturally, it should be something from Lewis's godawful seventies collection. It wouldn't be right any other way. There are plenty of great candidates: "Life on Mars?" by David Bowie, "Rocket Man" by Elton John, "Alone Again (Naturally)" by Gilbert O'Sullivan. But I settled on "Stayin' Alive" by the Bee Gees.Andy Weir Bowie's Sayings By Andy Weir: I got really bored, so I decided to pick a theme song! Something appropriate. And

There's a good television programme called 'Disco 2.' It's quite good but again it's average, average. It's all on a down play. You know we've got this thing in England to be hip is to speak very down - like John Peel. And that just about sums up England. They don't realize when they talk like that, then that is what they represent - absolutely.David Bowie Bowie's Sayings By David Bowie: There's a good television programme called 'Disco 2.' It's quite good but again it's average,

It's just not a real thing.David Bowie Bowie's Sayings By David Bowie: It always felt like you were trying too hard to look like the audience or
About a week ago I was sitting in L.A.'s chicest nightclub with a few friends and the DJ was playing Yaz and Bowie and the videos were on and I was on my third gin and tonic and I realized that no matter where I am it's always the same. Camden, New York, L.A., Palm Springs - it really doesn't seem to matter. Maybe this should be disturbing but it's really not. I find it kind of comforting.Bret Easton Ellis Bowie's Sayings By Bret Easton Ellis: About a week ago I was sitting in L.A.'s chicest nightclub with a few friends

I've been a big believer in musicians turned actor, going back to Sinatra winning the Oscar for 'From Here To Eternity.'

The twenty-seventh was Blackstar, or simply (the symbol of blackstar) - a suggestion that the A-Z was over, but there was more to come, beyond the known alphabet, beyond ordinary language; a second set of letters, communications, a rebirth. Inside the A to Z, and all the possible combinations of songs, styles, secrets, themes, discoveries, redirections, emotional climaxes, sheer drama, tension, relief, beauty, there was all you needed to know in order to construct and understand the language of Bowie

I'm very curious about David Bowie's new record [2016]. I'm very, very ... I'm just incredibly curious, I want to see what's happening with that.

I kind of miss that "becoming" stage, as most times you really don't know what's around the corner. Now, of course, I've kind of knocked on the door and heard a muffled answer. Nevertheless, I still don't know what the voice is saying, or even what language it's in.David Bowie Bowie's Sayings By David Bowie: I kind of miss that "becoming" stage, as most times you really don't know what's
We want you to tell us about vampires."
Simon grinned. "What do you want to know? Scariest is Eli in Let the Right One In, cheesiest is late-era Lestat, most underrated is David Bowie in The Hunger. Sexiest is definitely Drusilla, though if you ask a girl, she'll probably say Damon Salvatore or Edward Cullen. But ... " he shrugged, "You know girls."
Julie's and Beatriz's eyes were wide. "I didn't think you'd know so many!" Beatriz exclaimed. "Are they ... are they your friends?"
"Oh, sure, Count Dracula and I are like this," Simon said, crossing his fingers to demonstrate. "Also Count Chocula. Oh, and my BFF Count Blintzula. He's a real charmer ... " He trailed off as he realized no one else was laughing. In fact, no one seemed to realize he was joking. "They're from TV," he prompted them. "Or, uh, cereal."
"What's he talking about?" Julie asked Jon, perfect nose wrinkling up in confusion.
"Who cares?" Jon said.
Cassandra Clare Bowie's Sayings By Cassandra Clare: We want you to tell us about vampires."Simon grinned. "What do you want to know?
It's a compulsive need to wreck everything. You might notice there's a pattern of stripping down and building back up again throughout my life. But I guess that's how some of us conduct our lives.David Bowie Bowie's Sayings By David Bowie: It's a compulsive need to wreck everything. You might notice there's a pattern of stripping
The absolute transformation of everything that we ever thought about music will take place within 10 years, and nothing is going to be able to stop it.

I'm fully confident that copyright, for instance, will no longer exist in 10 years.David Bowie Bowie's Sayings By David Bowie: The absolute transformation of everything that we ever thought about music will take place within

Bowie mattered to me. He reinvented himself so many times - it must have been a daring statement to do that, risking failure. And hanging out with him and seeing him like that - he's my dad's age, born in the same month - when you find someone who's been through a really dark period, which most of his music I care about is from, Low, Lodger, "Heroes" era ... But he came out of it and made something that mattered.Trent Reznor Bowie's Sayings By Trent Reznor: Bowie mattered to me. He reinvented himself so many times - it must have been

With that, Quincy brought the bowie knife down on Moon's cuffed hand and chopped off four fingers which flew up before my eyes like chips from a log.

My thought was: I am better out of this.Charles Portis Bowie's Sayings By Charles Portis: With that, Quincy brought the bowie knife down on Moon's cuffed hand and chopped off
They're the salt of the earth, those girls. They don't sit each night and compare notes on groups, criticising lyrics, asking if it's valid. They just play the record ... yeah, and maybe they dance. I love them. I love them dearlyDavid Bowie Bowie's Sayings By David Bowie: They're the salt of the earth, those girls. They don't sit each night and compare
The title song of David Bowie's 'Young Americans' is one of his handful of classics, a bizarre mixture of social comment, run-on lyric style, English pop and American soul.Jon Landau Bowie's Sayings By Jon Landau: The title song of David Bowie's 'Young Americans' is one of his handful of classics,
Questioning my spiritual life has always been germane to what I was writing. Always. It's because I'm not quite an atheist and it worries me.

Give me a couple of months.'David Bowie Bowie's Sayings By David Bowie: Questioning my spiritual life has always been germane to what I was writing. Always. It's
Also while I'd been away, the ship had sent a request on a postcard to the BBC's World Service, asking for 'Mr David Bowie's "Space Oddity" for the good ship Arbitrary and all who sail in her.' (This from a machine that could have swamped Earth's entire electro-magnetic spectrum with whatever the hell it wanted from somewhere beyond Betelgeuse.) It didn't get the request played. The ship thought this was hilarious.Iain M. Banks Bowie's Sayings By Iain M. Banks: Also while I'd been away, the ship had sent a request on a postcard to

Charlie's face was hot, his asthma
I do value the respect I get from my contemporaries, but to have Oasis cover my song, to have Puff Daddy cover a song, to have Goldie come along to my gigs - that's where my ego is at. To have my fellow musicians like what I do, that's very cool.David Bowie Bowie's Sayings By David Bowie: I do value the respect I get from my contemporaries, but to have Oasis cover
I haven't changed my views much since I was about 12, really, I've just got a 12-year-old mentality.When I was in school I had a brother who was into Kerouac and he gave me On The Road to read when I was 12 years old. That's still been a big influence.David Bowie Bowie's Sayings By David Bowie: I haven't changed my views much since I was about 12, really, I've just got
If I hadn't had my children, I would have been discouraged a lot quicker. It would have been much more easy for me to say, "You know what, let the whole thing go. Have a good time, because these people, this place - it's just not worth it." You know? I can't do that anymore. I look into those eyes and they look at me so trustingly that I'm gonna make sure that [they're thinking], "Hey, you did a good thing bringing me into the world, daddy. I'm going to have a great life!"David Bowie Bowie's Sayings By David Bowie: If I hadn't had my children, I would have been discouraged a lot quicker. It
There's a thing that just as you go to sleep, if you keep your elbows elevated that you will never go below the dream stage.

I never thought I would be such a family-oriented guy; I didn't think that was part of my makeup.

David Bowie emerged as a rock star in the late '60s. And as Ken Tucker wrote, "In the face of the hippy era's sincerity, intimacy and generosity, Bowie presented irony, distance and self-absorption. His song 'Changes' announced the arrival of a new counterculture," unquote.David Bowie Bowie's Sayings By David Bowie: David Bowie emerged as a rock star in the late '60s. And as Ken Tucker

When I was around Bowie, I was nearing the bottom. When we were touring together, I looked at him as a kind of big-brother figure and I also looked at him as somebody I had a lot of respect for. The age and the period he's at in his life, I'd like to be there some day. He has a kind of content peace about him that's something to shoot for.Trent Reznor Bowie's Sayings By Trent Reznor: When I was around Bowie, I was nearing the bottom. When we were touring together,
David Bowie's music is a moving target. Just when you think you got the bullseye, it shifts. And to his credit, on to death, it's still shifting. David Bowie is a moving target, even after he's gone.Carlos Alomar Bowie's Sayings By Carlos Alomar: David Bowie's music is a moving target. Just when you think you got the bullseye,
The humanists' replacement for religion: work really hard and somehow you'll either save yourself or you'll be immortal. Of course, that's a total joke, and our progress is nothing.

It was not the same as charging down a machine-gun nest armed only with a Bowie knife, or strapping in to the tail-gunner seat of a four-engined heavy bomber. And no one else would ever know, since one did not get a medal for letting go of a woman's hand on a gray Saturday morning in the middle of a European war. But to have faith - that a lover would be constant and life clement - this did require courage in a city more disposed to beginnings than safe continuations. AsChris Cleave Bowie's Sayings By Chris Cleave: It was not the same as charging down a machine-gun nest armed only with a

My son's full real name is Duncan Zowie Haywood. As a toddler, he was called by his second name Zowie.

As a toddler, he was called

What I do is I write mainly about very personal and rather lonely feelings, and I explore them in a different way each time. You know, what I do is not terribly intellectual.

My family knew I was gay when I was 15, long before I got famous. But it's a very different thing coming out to your family and coming out to the universe. That's a big step. Maybe without me, there wouldn't be Adam Lambert. Without Bowie, there wouldn't be me. Without Quentin Crisp, there wouldn't have been Bowie. So everything is part of a big daisy chain.Boy George Bowie's Sayings By Boy George: My family knew I was gay when I was 15, long before I got famous.

TV has eaten up everything else, and Warhol films are all that are left, which is fabulous. Pork could become the next I Love Lucy, the great American domestic comedy. It's about how people really live, not like Lucy, who never touched dishwater. It's about people living and hustling to survive.David Bowie Bowie's Sayings By David Bowie: TV has eaten up everything else, and Warhol films are all that are left, which
I'm rather kind of old school, thinking that when an artist does his work, it's no longer his ... I just see what people make of it.David Bowie Bowie's Sayings By David Bowie: I'm rather kind of old school, thinking that when an artist does his work, it's
That's the shock: All cliches are true. The years really do speed by. Life really is as short as they tell you it is. And there really is a God - so do I buy that one? If all the other cliches are true ... Hell, don't pose me that one.David Bowie Bowie's Sayings By David Bowie: That's the shock: All cliches are true. The years really do speed by. Life really

Planet Earth is blue.
Blue blue electric blue, that's the color of my room. Put on your red shoes and dance the blues. I never did anything out of the blue. Now my Blue Jean's blue. See these eyes so green, I could stare for a thousand years. See these eyes so red. Oh you've got green eyes, oh you've got blue eyes, oh you've got gray eyes. I'll give you television, I'll give you eyes of blue. I looked in her eyes, they were blue, but nobody home. The blue light was my baby, and the red light was my mind. See these tears so blue. You wouldn't believe what I've been through. It's been so long. And I think it's gonna be a long, long time. It's all over now, Baby Blue.
And there's nothing I can do.

There's just some dysfunctionalism with artists. There are good things and bad things about being an artist, and the good thing is, sometimes you get an inside line on what's really happening. You develop these strange antennae that clue you in to what's really going on.David Bowie Bowie's Sayings By David Bowie: There's just some dysfunctionalism with artists. There are good things and bad things about being

Jazz is so difficult. A lot of people think once they've learned these licks they can get up and play them for the rest of their life. But that's not being truthful to the music 'cause it's not developing. Cats you hear that don't make no mistakes? They ain't trying to do nothing. everything they hear is on the mark, but they've played it so many times ... I've built a whole career out of making mistakes!Lester Bowie Bowie's Sayings By Lester Bowie: Jazz is so difficult. A lot of people think once they've learned these licks they

People say to me, 'Do you dye your hair?' and I say, 'Well, does f**king Siouxsie Sioux? Does Bowie?'. Of course I'm going to have a decent haircut.

For me, often, there's such a cloud of melancholia about knowing I'm going to have to leave my daughter on her own. I don't know what age that is going to be, thank God. It just doubles me up in grief.David Bowie Bowie's Sayings By David Bowie: For me, often, there's such a cloud of melancholia about knowing I'm going to have
The world that I inhabit in reality is probably very different world than the one people expect that I would be in. It is quite sedate. It's far removed from a lot of what they would feel to be the limousine traveling rock existence, or whatever.David Bowie Bowie's Sayings By David Bowie: The world that I inhabit in reality is probably very different world than the one
Early on, I was into David Bowie. Then someone in the band suggested I try a Bryan Ferry type of thing. That's when I started wearing three-piece suits. It wasn't unnatural for me.Robin Zander Bowie's Sayings By Robin Zander: Early on, I was into David Bowie. Then someone in the band suggested I try
