This David Bowie image, snapped earlier this evening, adorns an east-facing wall of the Beverly Hills Sofitel. I don’t know what Bowie looked like in 1969 but he was two years away from Hunky Dory (long blonde hair, no heavy glam makeup) and sure as hell hadn’t adopted his Ziggy Stardust persona, which wouldn’t happen until 1972. Think of it — Sofitel management actually paid someone to paint a misdated Bowie portrait on their hotel, and in so doing made the whole team look like idiots.


Taken at the corner of Beverly Blvd. and La Cienega — Monday, 1.3, 8:45 pm.


Peak Ziggy mode in ’72 (or maybe ’73).

    Unfortunately Bowie like Joey Ramone, Johnny Cash and Kurt Cobain before him is now considered cool paraphernalia for people that would’ve never listened or dismissed these artist in their prime. To them it’s just a shallow status symbol; disposable t-shirt phases made for the discount rack. They’re vultures of pop culture, the lowest of the low-just empty headed morons who listen to whatever monotone crap the radio feeds them and thinks it’s deep. If you think it’s bad with Bowie, just wait til all the young Judas’ feast when Dylan passes.

      “Bob Dylan” passed away for me around 1977 or so

  • It would be a real delight for Hell to get the Best Picture.

  • whole team look like idiots? I don’t think so, it’s his style
