>one of the most important conductors and composers of the 20th century dies, nobody gives a shit
>some flamboyant 70s teen pop rock junkie dies, whole world bawwing their eyes out despite knowing and caring fuck all about him otherwise
Why is this allowed?
Both Boulez and Bowie were great musicians.
Bowie was tremendously influential across culture including in classical music (Peter & The Wolf, "Low" and "Heroes" Symphonies, etc.).
Boulez...well is fucking Boulez.
Don't show your age too much!
>despite caring fuck all about him otherwise
But that's not true. Pretty sure even as a whole Bowie has had more influence on music and people's live than Boulez. Not to mention that outsise his conducting, Boulez also represents in his composition and his writings on music everything I dislike about what 20th Century Classical became and in a way also everything I dislike about /mu/
>implying I didn't care when Mr. Boulez died
David Bowie is a huge part of the musical fabric of Britain, of course I'm bloody upset!
You yanks wouldn't understand, you've yet to produce a good musician.
