I was in my thirties when I realized that Whoopi Goldberg doesn't have eyebrows.
I never noticed. Bowie on the other hand.

Bowie looks awful in that pic.
Considering he woke up and said "I'm going to shave my eyebrows and wear my couch as a suit" he did OK

Nah I reckon he lost his eyebrows down the back of his couch.

Hello,

I've a bit of an odd request. Scary Monsters is my top choice for Bowie album - just tremendous for so many reasons! I've got Vampires of Human Flesh but was hoping to come across a good show where he was either touring to support Scary Monsters or played quite a few tracks from that album. Does anyone here have recommendations?

Thanks!

Pretty sure he never toured 'Scary Monsters', and I don't think I've ever heard a song from it played live, not even "Ashes to Ashes". Agree it's a brilliant album, top 5 Bowie for me.

He definitely did a few songs, though not all. He didn’t tour scary Monsters. Or Lodger, for that matter. Bowie tours were long but spaced out. I think he basically toured solo in 1983 and 1987.

Songs I Have Live Versions Of [Tour]:

“Up the Hill Backwards“ [Glass Spider - 1987]
“Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)” [Serious Moonlight - 1983, Glass Spider - 1987, 1995, 1996, unplugged tour (I think 1997)]
“Ashes To. Ashes“ [Almost every tour After it was released]
“Fashion” [1983, 1987, Sound + Vision - 1990]
“Teenage Wildlife” [1996]

Yeah, I was thinking just as I was writing my response to gkbill: I bet Wolt or Tep or Marky are gonna come on and say yup - he played a bunch of songs post-1980. Cuz I (very unfortunately) lost David on my radar after 'Scary Monsters' (even 'Let's Dance' was foggy/meh for me at the time) until 'Heathen'. So, yeah, I guessed there actually were probably live versions, official or boots.

Hello,

Thanks to all who responded. I did a soulseek search and found those above as well as a lot of others. David could really project an aggressive fear with Scary Monsters and it's amplified live - love that! I did come across some oddities such as Can't Explain with Stevie Ray Vaughn and a good version of I'm Afraid of Americans with Sonic Youth. I think my techno-knowledge will allow me to share - not sure about post. Again, thanks to those who responded! This has been great.

The acoustic Scary Monsters from the late 90s almost sound like they’re arranged for American albums-era Johnny Cash.

While watching the 400 minute documentary on the Friday the 13th movies, I learned that the producer for most of them, Frank Mancuso Jr, was a huge BOWIE fan, and that four of the screenplays were filmed under alias titles, including "Crystal Japan", "Repetition", "Aladdin Sane" and "Ashes to Ashes"

James mentioned listening to Aladdin Sane on twitter and I realized I hadn’t listened in a while. Damn this album rules.
