An interesting article entitled "David Bowie Returns With More Mature Offering" can be found at CDNow's Allstar daily news site.
The article touches on writing rock and roll for mature audiences and Bowie's songwriting process.
There is an excerpt:
"Actually, I think for the first time for a long time I'd actually taken the trouble to write the songs before we went into the studio," says Bowie. "So I spent a lot of time virtually crafting them in a very reactionary, old fashioned traditional way; just wrote proper songs, applied myself to them and the lyric, and kept them extremely simple.
The VH1 journals have been getting some great reactions, but here is a quick note sent in by Chris Gaffney. Of course Chris, we have added Ireland to the list in the VH1 Journals section!
Hi all: I managed to get tickets (very very difficult I might add.) and do a roundtrip of about 7000 miles. Could you please mention Ireland as one of thecountries fans traveled from. I hope my boss doesn't see the show as I wassuppose to be ill from work and not smiling and singing along in NY.
