Why are people such closed-minded pieces of shit? I know there was already a thread about this but this is seriously the hardest I've cringed in years. Old people are the fucking worst. They're the real "music snobs", and clearly don't understand the subjectivity of music. Nobody cares that you've been a Bowie fan for 47 years, chances are you forgot about him after Let's Dance came out anyway.
How is this in any way Bowie's fault? I doubt a dead guy can be held accountable for an army of 9gaggers circle-jerking it to Dave Grohl and meme-hating Kanye West.
Yeah, it sucks that people hate him without listening to him, but there isn't much you can do.
Mate says i'm an attention whoring hipster - despite I never ever speak about what I listen to, own no band tshirts or have any music tattoos and this little rinkie dink bitch has a guitar tattoo, wears and joy division hoodie and listens to 1975.
>Talented Musician turns down a collab with a rapper. Honestly I'm not suprised.
Because rap wasn't a thing when they were growing up and segregation was something that existed in the US only like a decade or so before. The 70s-80s weren't that far removed from the era where blacks had separate schools, so those attitudes were still fresh in the minds of a lot of people. These people don't understand rap beyond "black music" and "hood gangsta" and they're not willing to give it a chance because they view it as inferior due to beliefs and prejudice instilled into them.
I hate kanye
I love bowie
I hate cover albums
But I'm sympathetic about kanye missing bowie
I think he should do his own album but have guitars and drums and do his own thing with a bowie inspiration
only partly. I guarantee you most of this backlash comes from 13-18 year olds who rightly think Bowie is a legend, but take it way too far as to say his music can't be covered by who they see as a poor musician (because they all memehate on Kanye because he's successful and they're pakistani children or secluded white kids)
I'm a huge Bowie fan, and if anyone had to pay tribute to Bowie, I would've liked it to be Kanye. Chances are anything performed at his tribute concert or the Grammys would just be excruciatingly watered down versions of the original. At least Kanye would do something different and interesting
he didn't propose to cover where all the songs are from a recently deceased artist while claiming he will continue his legacy
plus most of his covers are good
