I'm just about the best...
David Bowie has been overwhelmingly voted man of the year in France's premier rock magazine, ROCK&FOLK. In the current issue of the publication, (see above) David has received Hero of the Year and Artist of the Year, and he's scored the hat trick with Concert of the Year too.
DB was also voted third Sex Symbol of the Year (I can almost here the cries of "outrageous injustice" from the MBs), while Reality and New Killer Star were voted third Best Album and third Best Song of 2003 respectively. Reality was voted second Best Album Sleeve (well done Rexy) and the fourth Best DVD was Best of Bowie.
Most bizarrely, David was given the dubious distinction of third place in Come Back of the Year! Didn't notice he had been away actually, but there ya go... I'm sure the voters' hearts are in the right place.
There is also a two-page celebration of David's 2003 in the same issue, written by our good friend JÃƒÂ©rÃƒÂ´me Soligny. I know I've said it before, but those Frenchies have bloody good taste!
Well done David, nothing less than you deserve... here's to a few more countries catching on!
