David Bowie - Heroes (live)

David Bowie just gets better with age. Watching this performance of "Heroes" confirms that. If you're feet aren't tapping by the second minute, you have no soul.

Sure he's a strange cat, but who in that industry isn't part freak show? He's been an active musician since 1964 and has held up remarkably well. Bowie, along with Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits, and Axel Rose of Guns N Roses,(both werewolf approved) may have one of the most distinctive and memorable voices in rock.

Anyhow, the werewolf's younger brother, the Shark, used to rib the shit out of the werewolf for being a David Bowie fan back in the days of Napster. (The werewolf was shameless and got his hands on more music than he cares to admit.) I think we can all agree that the 1980's were a tad rough on Bowie(with the exception of Labyrinth), but his glam-rock songs like "Heroes," "Rebel Rebel," and "Suffragette City," have earned him a place in pantheon of great rockers. Enjoy.
