David Bowie : The Independent : 06/04/01. From Simon Price's review of Missy Elliott's recent gig at Brixton Academy. Occasionally, maybe once a decade if we're lucky, pop history will throw up a precious instance when a person and a moment coincide. When one artist at the height of their powers seems to tower over everyone else, seems capable of almost anything. In 1972, it was David Bowie.

Pictures Of Lily : Uncut : July 2001. From Uncut's review of Substitute : the Songs Of The Who. ...and of course there's Bowie, whose slow but steady 'Pictures of Lily' arrives like the long-lost relative of his previous Who tributes on 1973's 'Pin Ups'
