Bowie dying really hits home that these guys aren't invincible and won't be around forever. Appreciate them when they're alive and see their concerts.
I pre ordered The Next Day but I was waiting to buy Black Star from a cd store but now I'll just get it off iTunes. I really don't want to be lumped in with Johnny come lately fairweather fans that jump on dead celebrity bandwagons.
Also it seems the producer of the album mentioned that Bowie recorded this album in early 2015 with the sole intention of releasing it near to his death. A farewell to his fans. Lazarus is powerful..
