There was no, there is no, and there will not be a better musician. Simple as that. If you think any different, then you are a fucking retard. Get it into your stupid, fucking heads.

Stop with this meme.

It's not a meme, it's my opinion.

Mediocre at best musician. I can't really understand why so many people like him, it must be the gimmicks of how he dressed and acted. Blackstar is the only decent thing he has ever put out and it took him 40 years and 15 or so terrible albums to get there.

I love Bowie, easily In my top 5 musicians of all time.
But if I didn't know him that much, threads like this one would make me hate him, it's okay to make threads about him, but don't make statements like "if you don't like him, you're shit"
That just makes people to dislike him, ugh.

You're making this shit to turn people against Bowie, fuck off.

AND THAT IS A FACT

David Bowie turned marketing into the essence of his art. All great phenomena of popular music, from Elvis Presley to the Beatles, had been, first and foremost, marketing phenomena (just like Coca Cola and Barbie before them); however, Bowie turned that into an art of its own. With Bowie the science of marketing becomes art; art and marketing become one. There were intellectuals who had proclaimed this theory in rebellious terms. Bowie was, in many ways, the heir, no matter how perverted, of Andy Warhol's pop art and of the underground culture of the 1960s. He adopted some of the most blaspheme issues and turned them upside down to make them precisely what they had been designed to fight: a commodity.

Bowie was a protagonist of his times, although a poor musician: to say that Bowie is a musician is like saying that Nero was a harp player (a fact that is technically true, but misleading). Bowie embodies the quintessence of artificial art, raises futulity to paradigm, focuses on the phenomenon rather than the content, makes irrelevant the relevant, and, thus, is the epitome of everything that went wrong with rock music.

Reading the chronicles of his times, it is clear that what caused sensation was the show, not the music. The show that Bowie set up was undoubtedly in sync with the avantgarde, as it fused theater, mime, cinema, visual art, literature and music. However, Bowie merely recycled what had been going on for years in the British underground, in particular what had been popularized by the psychedelic bands of 1967. And he turned it into a commodity: whichever way you look at his oeuvre, this is the real merit of it.

Bowie's sound was largely Visconti's (or Eno's). Without that sound, Bowie remains a second-rate vocalist singing second-rate pop for a second-rate audience.

This. This right here.
I'm a huge Bowie fan and these constant shitpost threads are gonna get people thinking he's bad. Fuck off, Bowie would laugh in OP's face

>>61868985
His music is bad. All show and no substance.

What do you mean?
>>
>>61869295
It always happens, when an artist or album gets a lot of recognition or good ratings the board starts hating on him.
>>
>>61866906
>There was no, there is no, and there will not be a better musician
If he was so good, why'd he need other musicians to play all the instruments on his albums?
>>
>>61869348
This board's opinion is meaningless, anyway. Also you should be enjoying music without caring about people's opinion.
>>
I don't have to even listen to this hack to know he was shit
>>
>>61869397
I do, /mu/'s opinion doesn't influence me in any way, i just think they give an unfair treatment to musicians. Sure, Bowie wouldn't had given a fuck because he was rich and famous, but there are musicians who are just starting and get shit for no real reason.
>>
>>61869348
No, when a legitimately bad artist like Bowie gets attention from redditors, we hate them. Door's this way, newfag, please gtfo

That's some low quality bait man, you'll have to try harder.

He was literally an overrated hack more known for his wild appearance than his (lack of) talent at composing or perfoming. He was a trendhopper who basically ripped off other shit that was going on around him and watered it down for a mainstream audience, his few good albums were collabs with more talented musicians like Mick Ronson and Brian Eno
>>
>>61866906
I have not seen anyone on this board be this vicious about their homosexuality.

He WAS crap

Bowie fanboys were always some of the worst there are.
Also, medicore music most of the time.
Low was ok, heroes was pretty good, but nothing else really

You know this is a pasta, right? it has been posted several times, it was made to make people angry.

>>61866906
That's what I tell everyone,those idiots don't desrve him or our time op
>>
>>61870268
All of that is true but I still like him and his music. Even documentaries about him don't hide the fact that it was always the people 'behind the scenes' who realised his visions and produced magic.
