Next week sees the release of the 39-track double CD: UK MUSIC HALL OF FAME. You may have already seen the ad on Channel 4 which slowly scans across a montage of artists featured on the programme, and which includes a snippet from the Mick Rock video of the track.

Did you miss last week's Gail Ann Dorsey chat? Well, don't fret, you can read the whole thing in the BowieNet chat section now.
I've had a few e-mails from people asking about the "red dress" that Gail refers to in the chat.

BowieNet members who frequent the message boards are already aware of the winners for this competition, as I announced the winners there earlier. But, before I list them again here, these are the answers that drove many of you to the very edge of insanity:
