Il est gratuit? je pensais qu'ils avaient arrêté la possibilité de devenir membre ou/et de rennouveller mais que pour le reste on ne pouvait toujours pas avoir acces.

En tout cas ce qui "craind" un peu c'est quand tu fais joindre bowienet le navigateur  te dit "attention page non certifiée Vous avez demandé à Firefox de se connecter de manière sécurisée à signup.davidbowie.com, mais nous ne pouvons pas confirmer que votre connexion est sécurisée."

je veux bien que le site soit en période de transition mais ça ils pouvaient l'éviter, des fois je ne les comprends pas à bowienet.

La pub sur bnet renvoie à un site de merchandising (greatgearstore), il n'y a qu'un mug en fait!



Mais il y aussi (entre autres) une assiette, des timbres, des petits sacs à main et un mini-réveil (si j'ai bien compris) Mr. Green

Il y a aussi quelques T-shirts, et celui là il me le faut Razz

THIS DAY IN MUSIC HISTORY

July 8: David Bowie’s David Live concerts begin

by Bryan Bierman July 8, 2011

“God that album. I've never played it. The tension it must contain must be like vampire’s teeth coming down on you. And that photo on the cover. My God, it looks as if I’ve just stepped out of the grave. That’s actually how I felt. That record should have been called ‘David Bowie Is Alive And Well And Living Only In Theory.’” —David Bowie, 1977

David Bowie’s career is such a fascinating journey that it makes the standard Behind The Music path of his peers look tame by comparison, however similar the story arc: There are the highs—the rise to fame, loads of money, receiving the love not offered as a child; the lows—the perils of fame, money-hungry greed, obligatory drug addiction to fill said void; then, the (sometimes) happy ending—coming to terms with personal identity, realizing money isn’t everything, and inevitably filling loveless void with friends and family.

This amount of drama is usually spread out among a 20-year career, but Bowie sped up the process and did it in about five, during which he starts off as a rock god from Mars, transforms to a Satanist Nazi, and ends as a scared and humble man who’s moved to Germany with his son and Iggy Pop to get clean and become a musical mad scientist. Ah, the ’70s.

Bowie is somewhere in the middle of that arc in the summer of 1974, coming off his most successful period of his career, his Ziggy Stardust creation, whom he “killed off” the year before. He’s just released Diamond Dogs, a strange 1984-esque rock opera that was less a political statement and more about Bowie’s drug-addled brain.

The ensuing tour was as big a spectacle as there had been in rock concerts at the time, complete with giant sets, a cherry picker, elaborate dance moves, and costume changes. It’s around this time that David also began his fixation with the funk and soul music of Philadelphia, artists like The Delfonics, The O’Jays, and the producing team of Gamble and Huff capturing his attention and influencing the song rearrangements for the live show.

The tour reached the Tower Theater in Upper Darby on July 8, and over the next five nights, the shows were recorded for what would become the double-LP, David Live—but not without problems. On July 8, when the backing band was notified that the shows were to be recorded and that they would only be paid union wages, they refused to go on until they were promised more money. Bowie ultimately talked his management into agreeing, only about an hour before the show. Also that night, Bowie’s producer Tony Visconti was stuck in New York after his car broke down. Since the engineer had to set up all the equipment himself, he placed the microphones in the wrong spots, meaning many of the backup vocals and horns had to be re-recorded in the studio.

However, the biggest problem of the album is Bowie’s vocals, which are incredibly frail, his apparent diet of “milk, red peppers, and cocaine” finally catching up to him. In Cracked Actor, a BBC documentary recorded during the tour, he’s white as a ghost, weighing what must only be 100 pounds, constantly sniffing and licking his gums, and in one scene, clearly paranoid about a nearby police siren. He sings about as good as he looks.



For some material, like “Rock N’ Roll Suicide,” this only adds to the desperate nature of the song, but for the most part, the strained cracking doesn’t do justice to a man who’s one of the best rock singers of all time.



The new funky versions of the songs surprisingly work better on the older material—turning biting rockers such as “Moonage Daydream” into strangely soulful pop songs—and work against the newer material, taking all the edge of the Diamond Dogs tunes and turning them into over-the-top schmaltz, including his cover of Eddie Floyd’s classic “Knock On Wood.”





By the time the album was released in October, Bowie had already returned to Philly to record most of the [i]Young Americans
album at the legendary Sigma Sound Studios, taking up residence at the Barclay Hotel in Rittenhouse. No longer just fascinated by the soul sound of the city, he fully immersed himself in it. On the second leg of the tour, nicknamed Philly Dogs, Bowie got rid of all the over-the-top sets and stripped it down to just him and the band, which bore better results, at least artistically.

All great artists’ work is a reflection of what the artist was feeling at that time, for better or worse. On [i]David Live
, Bowie is still in the party mindset of his addictions, not focusing enough attention on his art, but so talented that even at his worst, he can still fake it. Although it sold well, the album received mixed reviews and gave Bowie his first real artistic failure, something he wouldn’t see again until the ’80s.

This Day in Music Spotlight: Commencing Countdown on David Bowie’s ‘Space Oddity’
July 11, 1969

Sean Patrick Dooley | 07.11.2011

Special thanks to ThisDayinMusic.com.

David Bowie’s journey to superstardom started in 1962, when he formed his first band, the Konrads, which had various lineups, ranging from four to eight members and played guitar-based rock and roll at pretty much any event that would have them, including weddings, youth groups, parties and any other gig they could muster. Enamored with the idea of becoming a full-time entertainer, young David (who was born David Robert Jones on January 8, 1947 in London) informed his parents that he was quitting Bromley Technical High School with the intention of becoming a music star; his parents quickly found him gainful employment as an electrician’s mate while he pursued his dream.

Getting no closer to his aspirations of making it big, Bowie left the Konrads and joined another band, the King Bees, who were partial to Howlin’ Wolf and Willie Dixon songs. This move also led to him landing his first business manager, Leslie Conn. Bowie released a single with the King Bees, “Liza Jane,” which was credited to Davie Jones and the King Bees, but it went nowhere fast, and Jones jumped ship for a blues outfit called Manish Boys. Bowie would later remark that he “…dreamed of being their Mick Jagger.”

When his single, “I Pity the Fool,” with Manish Boys failed to gain traction, again Bowie sought greener pastures, this time with the Lower Third, a group greatly influenced by The Who. When their single “You’ve Got a Habit of Leaving” tanked, he fired Conn as his manager and hired Ralph Horton. Bowie soon quit Manish Boys, joined another band called the Buzz, and his revolving door of manager kept spinning as he got rid of Horton and hired Ken Pitt. He also decided that he needed to change his name because Davy (or “Davie” at times) Jones, he concluded, was too confusing with the The Monkees’ Davy Jones. So, inspired by the 19th Century American frontiersman, he assumed the name David Bowie.

In April 1967, Bowie released “The Laughing Gnome” as a solo single, which was soon followed by his self-titled debut solo album. Both the single and the psychedelic pop-flavored album flopped, which sent Bowie into a two-year hiatus from releasing new music. During this hiatus, he explored his fascination with the bizarre through his friendship with dancer Lindsay Kemp. “He lived on his emotions,” Bowie would later say about Kemp. “He was a wonderful influence. His day-to-day life was the most theatrical thing I had ever seen, ever. It was everything I thought Bohemia probably was.”

Kemp, however, didn’t take too much credit for Bowie’s metamorphosis as an artist. “I didn’t really teach him to be a mime artiste, but to be of himself on the outside,” Kemp recalled. “I enabled him to free the angel and demon that he is on the inside.” Under Kemp’s tutelage, Bowie studied all aspects the dramatic arts, including mime and avant-garde theater, as he delved into developing different personae to share with audiences.

In January 1969, shooting started on a 30-minute film designed to promote Bowie’s theatrical and musical repertoire. Bowie told the producers that he had a song for the film, and he played them the demo for “Space Oddity,” which chronicled the launch of fictitious astronaut, Major Tom, into outer space (the title was a reference to the Stanley Kubrick film 2001: A Space Odyssey, which came out the previous year). Some critics opined that “Space Oddity” was really a metaphor for drug use, especially during the song’s initial countdown, which some believed was analogous to the length of time heroin took to make its way from the syringe, into the system, to the brain and ultimate euphoria. Bowie gave some level of credence to that thought with his 1980 song,, “Ashes to Ashes,” where he sings, “We know Major Tom’s a junkie.”

First released as a single in the U.K. on this day in 1969, “Space Oddity” was featured on the BBC just a few days later, during its coverage of the launch and lunar landing of the Apollo 11 moon mission. Produced by Gus Dudgeon (Beatles producer George Martin declined producing the song), “Space Oddity” shot to #5 in the U.K. and would go on to win numerous awards, including the 1969 Ivor Novello Award. In the U.S., however, it stalled at #124. Four years later, though, in 1973 it was re-released on RCA, where it climbed to #15, becoming Bowie’s first hit in the U.S. The song was also re-released as a single in the U.K. and shot to #1, becoming his first chart-topping hit in his home country.

Unlike the ill-fated Major Tom, David Bowie’s career continued to soar in the years that followed. He would take on new personas, from Ziggy Stardust to the Thin White Duke, and become one of the biggest rock stars in the world. And he owed his “blast off” to a little tune called “Space Oddity.”

Je suppose que tout ça s'inscrit dans la stratégie à long terme de faire de Bowie une légende (ou plutôt de renforcer cela). Un peu comme on a eu les figurines et tous les objets dérivés représentant Elvis.

Je trouve  ce logo ziggy baclé. Peut-être que c'était un peu dans l'esprit BD super héro marvel ou dc? mais bon....ce n'est pas une reussite. Déjà que je n'ai jamais reussi à porter un tee-shirt Bowie, je ne me vois pas boire dans un mug le représentant, c'est bon pour me faire renverser le café ça.

Lulu’s got a lot to shout about
Andrew Clarke, Arts Editor
Wednesday, July 13, 2011

“Also working with David Bowie was an interesting experience.” In 1974 she covered two David Bowie songs The Man Who Sold The World and Watch That Man. Bowie produced the sessions, played saxophone as well as singing backing vocals.
