watched half this so far... and so far so good!

update: finished and yes, quite unique and good. not like a normal ken burns documentary we see so much about artists. also im glad they travel with him up through his earthling days in the 90's. although he copied a lot of artists, by that time in his career he became really adept with channeling the zeitgeist well which i think is a truly a powerful quality that made him so great (among many other things obviously)
make music, not walls.

I should watch this. Everybody loves Bowie, we know he had good songs, we know he was good at singing, ...but what was his "TRICK"? That made Bowie more special then other singers, or people with songs... I know he was glam, theatrical. But more well known then other glam acts.

The world of music creation, recording and consumption has changed drastically over the past half century+ of time, over which Bowie continuously innovated, morphed and transcended through eras, certainly pushing a few boundaries now and then.

I suppose that his "trick" was simply being David Bowie. Or rather, by being a gifted creative and a unique David Jones.

His trick was hard work and perseverance...

Agreed, I had meant to include perseverance too. That was / is certainly an understated mandatory requirement for the most part and often for those that do succeed they are driven and would most likely be doing what they do whether successful or not. Whatever defines that to each. To many, it was simply selling enough records to be able to make the next one, though Bowie quite early was out of that category.

I met the man once, a simple moments exchange of greeting and acknowledgment, not that he would have remembered it, but of course I vividly do.

I think that he created the music that he wanted to create, that moved him and shifted genres to appease himself and attempt to make music that pleased himself and hopefully others. He knew what he wanted from his players and who best suited his particular end, as his legacy musicians attest.

A product of his influences, surely, just as anyone is.

An incredible career and span of the quality and type that I'm not sure is possible to be reproduced today.

And huge mountains of cocaine which allow you to accomplish superhuman amounts of hard work and perseverance.
He was a sick man when I saw him live in Ottawa, Canada in summer 1973 doing his Diamond Dogs tour. Despite charging a large ticket price with no backup band, he only played for 45 minutes.
When he wouldn't do an encore the audience destroyed his PA system, yelling, "Fuck David Bowie!"
When his big black bodyguards came out on stage to settle things down, the audience threw metal chairs at them. They threw the chairs back and started a riot.
I was lucky enough to see Muddy Waters live the next night at the National Arts Center. THAT was a real concert!
I miss the old days when you could just plug in and play.

Along with his persona changes and phases were his drug and "interests" phases as well for sure. He has said he remembers nothing of some periods at all. Somehow he survived his excess, unlike so many others, so I guess there's that. No shortage of shows from that era in my memory that were utter shite due to the acts being completely messed up and unable to deliver.

Nonetheless, you are among a relative few that saw that expensive to put on tour as it only was performed with full blown set a minimal number of times (and sadly, precious little actual video or documentation exists of it) before being scrapped and abandoned, marking the full stop end of his Ziggy / glam character phase... to the chagrin of many and where after he moved right into his 'plastic soul' period. I enjoyed all of that.

Tickets prices in those days for the biggest acts were in the 5 - to 8 (less than 10 dollars) range, which is hard to believe now. Yeah...all relative, but still.

I guess Ottawa (given your mention of the chairs) still had 'rush' seating policies as was the norm for this type of venue back then.

For those that might not know what that was, it meant that there was one single price for the tickets and your seat was in whatever place you could grab first, ie; front row if that's what you wanted.

(Of course people would fill in and stand in front of those first rows of chairs anyway, which then lead to basically everyone having to stand up to see. )

For big shows, the doors opened and the horde of fans flooded or 'rushed' into the venue manically and frantically to grab the best seats that they could. What could go wrong, right? That method of indoor concert seating generally was stopped not long after, sometime late 70's.

His trick was a combination of wanting to be famous in his younger days and constantly searching for his style by copying other artistes until his own style emerged. Once he 'made it' he didn't try to pedal the same thing that got him there, he constantly evolved and creatively explored the world with an open mind. He knew that what worked for him today wouldn't work for him tomorrow so he kept changing his style. He had the talent to do that, not many do.
