One of my favourite, if not my favourite, artists of all time. The first music I ever owned was 'The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust'. It's still one of my favourite albums of all time, dear to my heat for the bold letters on the back stating 'TO BE PLAYED AT MAXIMUM VOLUME'.
But, he's been up and down. Errr, Tin Machine, cough, errr.
Funny you posted this. I saw the info about the new album 2 weeks ago and started to think about his collaborations. Specifically with Roger Waters on 'Comfortably Numb', Trent Reznor (NiN) on 'Im Afraid of Americans', Placebo on 'Without You I'm Nothing', etc...
I did a shitload of digging. There's no friggin album for these team ups, though I can get Drummer Boy with Bing shoved down my throat every Christmas.
Speaking of, how long are we celebrating Christmas?
Anyways, thanks for the heads up, heading to iTunes now to have a few listens, and then iomoio* to buy. * Seriously, check out iomoio. I've dropped $100 there. Great music, insane catalogue, albums on average $3-5, great bps.
