pre-2000: general ignorance of David Bowie, vague impressions.
2000-2002:The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust, glam fascination.
2002: Let’s Dance. Spent the summer working at a pizza place, and came home after work every night to get stoned, play Goldeneye with my roommates, eat leftover…
I’m probably more of a fan of Space Oddity, Lodger & Aladdin Sane than you are, and that’s OK. Agreed that Diamond Dogs is a low-point in his early period, though I still dig some of it but I could never get into Young Americans like others could. Love Station To Station and I consider Lodger his last great record (and it is great).
