    A couple of days ago I was watching his Ziggy Stardust show from early 1970's on Palladia. I thought it was a tie in with his new album but maybe they knew he had terminal cancer then.

    Palladia is a channel that I don't get because Charter charges extra for it.

    "Major Tom" is my favorite.
  10. It actually titled "Space Oddity".

    Sad to lose such a talent that spans across music, art and film. His new album BlackStar was released just a couple of days ago. Lemmy and now David, RIP to both.

    In music history, IMO an event that served to bridge 3 generations in music as this was filmed in Sept. of 77'. Sadly we lost Bing a month later, Oct. 77', but this aired a month after Bing's death for his 1977' Christmas Special. Not sure anyone else in Rock music at the time could step up and do what David did.

  17. It's important to note when you are wrong about something. You never hesitate to correct others or call them names.
