Chances are pretty good that your favorite band, no matter how metal, punk, pop or goth, has been influenced by David Bowie.
Yesterday, Peter Gabriel released an album of cover songs of tracks from [lastfm]Arcade Fire[/lastfm], [lastfm]Bon Iver[/lastfm], [lastfm]Talking Heads[/lastfm], [lastfm]Radiohead [/lastfm]and more on the disc called Scratch My Back. Gabriel also covers [lastfm]David Bowie’s[/lastfm] “Heroes.” The first time I saw this video I was absolutely transfixed—Bowie’s rail thin figure, his poise, never wavering in the smokey light, and those lyrics are simply killer.
