another Bowie quote:

In a 1999 interview with
Rolling Stone, Fanny fan David Bowie revealed his respect for the band:[12]

One of the most important female bands in American rock has been buried without a trace. And that is Fanny. They were one of the finest... rock bands of their time, in about 1973. They were extraordinary... they're as important as anybody else who's ever been, ever; it just wasn't their time. Revivify Fanny. And I will feel that my work is done.

 David Bowie

I don't agree that Bowie had much noticeable influence on Punk. Iggy Pop yes. Bowie - meh - not so much. Punk US style was initially NYC mixed with heavy Upper Midwest whack jobs.

If I may, Kevin, I'd like to say you are beginning to sound like a broken record.

And I thinketh you protest too much about the talent women show or don't show musically (or athletically).

What does it matter as long as it's enjoyable music, man? Keep your eyes closed when listening and you may be lots happier.

Norma Jean Wofford (more than 50 years ago) took over Lady Bo's spot. Could dance bettern Bo, guitar_wise probably not, but she did pass the audition.


Black Cat Bone and an audience full of young white girls. I'd be willing to bet none of them rode the Tahoe Tram.

generally speaking, in the seventies, female influence and accomplishment in the realm of rock and roll was comparable to its importance in climbing.

Bowie DID in fact, influence punk on several levels. Of course, punk has its spectrums (just like rock has its spectrums/sub-genres), one of which is gothic punk. Bands like Alien Sex Fiend, Bauhaus, Tones On Tail, Skinny Puppy, Eater, David J, Swans, Christian Death, Shadow Project and many others, praised Bowie for opening the door, especially during a time when music stalled. Lou Reed (especially during Transformer) inspired folks to explore into uncharted territory. Hell, even my favorite band of all-time, Pink Floyd, had an influence on new and experimental music. Syd Barrett already presented himself as a dark enigma, much different than the die-cast character of rock during that time frame. That look and character presence is seen in the goth punk movement today.

Past all that and shifting gears, I'd have to cast my vote for all-time best musician and master of guitar work.......David Gilmour. Hands down!
