Why the fuck did Bowie’s music after the 70s descend into complete and utter shit? Dude went from being the GOATest of GOATs to senility almost overnight. This is what becoming rich and heterosexual does to you

The 80s were rough on a lot of musicians. Bob Dylan put out a long of garbage after the 70s too.

Literally about to type this. Computers killed music. Every artist I like were in peak form in the 70s. 80s the music becomes computer quantized mess for most of them. By the 90s they are pure trash.

Should add even if they still did live songs. I can't really describe it, but starting with the 80s the mixing became horrendous. Everything started sounding so thin and tinny. Then 90s they start overmixing in bass but it still lacks the full warm sound music in the 70s.

>In late 1976, following a suggestion by writer Christopher Isherwood, Bowie moved to West Berlin, with his friend Iggy Pop. For a time the retreat only relocated Bowie's troubles. He became a heavy drinker. He threw up in alleys at night. He reportedly called out to people, "Please help me." He also did worse: He became intrigued by Third Reich history and Nazi mythology. He had said years earlier in an interview, "I believe very strongly in fascism." In 1974 he told Playboy, "Adolf Hitler was one of the first rock stars. Look at some of the films and see how he moved. I think he was quite as good as Jagger." In Strange Fascination, Buckley reports that customs officers detained Bowie at the Russian-Polish border in April 1976, and seized a collection of Nazi memorabilia. When an assistant later criticized him for his interest, Bowie grew infuriated. "Fuck you," he said. "I changed the world! Kiss my arse" – then broke down and cried. The worst moment came in 1976, when Bowie arrived in an open-top Mercedes-Benz convertible at London's Victoria Station and was photographed giving what some people wrongly thought was a Nazi salute. The reaction in England was furious. Bowie was sickened when he saw the photo. "I'm NOT a fascist…," he told Melody Maker in October 1977. "That didn't happen… I just WAVED… On the life of my child, I waved." The longer Bowie stayed in Berlin, the more he came to understand the ruin that fascism had done to Germany and Europe. He was repelled by nationalists and racists, and was horrified to see his name made into a swastika in graffiti. He later called his interests "ghastly," and said he had been coming out of a year of terrible duress. "I was out of my mind, totally, completely crazed."

This one is literally true tho, both Jagger and Hitler did perform the same function for the state aparatus. Both either showed (Hitler) / represent (Jagger) some unachiveable dream to spark the masses into action and further remove them from class antagonism.

it's bad and doesn't come close to his 70s stuff at all
bowie was nothing without his early collaborators like mick ronson or tony visconti or iggy pop or the soul/r&b influence of the time, in all honesty
