Gracias Polly! Itīs a good refresher about Pinups and Bowie.

Purple, Zeppelin and Sabbath never die! They live forever through the years...the essence of rock.

Yep, I was really keen Sabs's first album, especially the title track ...
What is this that stands before me?
Figure in black that points at me
Turn round quick and start to run
Find out I'm the chosen one ... OH LORD NO!!
All with that spooky bell and then ... BAM! LOL - love it! Pure B-grade horror schlock. When I started reading The Exorcist I went into my room, turned off the lights and lit candles, sparked up a doobie, turned on Sabs Vol 1 and lay back reading ... waaay too much fun :)

Pinups was David Bowie playing old covers with a crack band including the mighty Aynsley Dunbar. Heaps of great covers - Here Comes the Night, See Emily Play, I Wish You Would, Sorrow (my band plays the Bowie version), Friday On My Mind, Don't Bring Me Down, Shapes of Things - it rocks!
The back of beyond ...
