Re: David Bowie - BBC Tonight

I've been lucky enough to have seen him 5 times. Twice at Milton Keynes bowl, once at Maine Rd, Rocker Park and the last time in Tel Aviv in '99. Definitely my favourite artist of all time, although closely followed by the Stones.
Thanks for the heads up Tony.

I’m amazed that some people can’t differentiate between a prominent statue in a public place celebrating somebody’s life and a historical building such as The Colosseum, or the remains of a concentration camp which is now a museum. You must be really really dim.
