Hey Gang


I’m a big Bowie fan and I’m really looking forward to seeing this new documentary…



What about you? Anyone else planning to go see it? Anyone seen it?

The thing that I loved about David Bowie was that he was doing more-or-less the exact same thing that Vincent Furnier (who??) and Gene Simmons / Paul Stanley were doing at the same time.  They realized that popular music could be musical theater.  And so, each of them created fictional characters: "Ziggy Stardust®," "Alice Cooper®," "KISS®." 


Their concerts were theatrical performances.  What they were serving up to you was pure fantasy which actually had nothing to do with the personal identities of the "actors" on the stage. You saw only the characters that they carefully portrayed.  And you loved it, buying tons of albums and tickets. Theater at its best.


Although several artists have since followed in their footsteps, they were the first.  They set the "stage." They saw what no one else had yet seen, and turned it into "gold."  And, most importantly, they were perfectionists. Masters of their craft.
