I looked and frowned and the monster was me...
Q magazine this month (December 2000 Issue) takes a dip into the world of "...online celebrity hosts with the most." Needless to say, BowieNet gets the thumbs up:
"...davidbowie.com is one of the most famous. The Thin White Duke, naturally, was an early adopter of all things net so it's no surprise that his site is one of the best designed and content-rich. Moreover, it's a classic example of a star using a site as a very real two-way conduit between them and their audience. Bowie spells out his viewpoint on page one..."
You know the bit on page one. And then under a list of related sites Q continues: "www.davidbowie.com - Exemplary site. Buy, read, interact, you could probably even mention Tin Machine and get away with it." Other sites mentioned in this list, not all with the same enthusiasm, are: www.holemusic.com - www.manzanera.com - www.tonyhart.nildram.co.uk - and last but least: www.greglake.com This last entry is included mainly for being "unintentionally hilarious". Poor Greg, and he still believes in Father Christmas to boot!
Foot Note: The Concise Oxford has exemplary as meaning: "fit to be imitated"...No change there then.
