How do these things get started? It was Elvis who had the twin. Jesse Presley died at birth.

I'll tell ya something. Where singing is concerned, BOTH of them could wail AND croon. Thats a distinction those two artists both kind of shared which I'd deem worth noting .

I like Elvis, but for the music, the era I grew up in it's David Bowie.

Wait for it... someone is going to tell you Michael Jackson is a MUSICIAN.

Maybe "Elvis is English and climbs the hills"?

Thanks for the clarification on the twins.

Both....2 of rock's trailblaizers.
Elvis in 50s & Bowie in 70s (although Bowie did make some decent 60's singles under David Jones & the Mannish Boys.....check out "You Have a Habit of Leaving Me")
Both are infuential & still relevant today in thier own different ways.

I like the early Bowie's "Can't help Thinking About Me" amongst others.

"Heros" is one of the great rock records from my perspective.

Yeah F, i knew he played sax, (guitar and piano as well?) but didn't know he played all those others. It's the scope and progression of Bowie that does it for me.

Out of the two artists I only care for one album between the two.......

The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars

How does one like Ziggy and not Aladdin?

I admit the musical style is still similar but what it really comes down to for me is the choice of songs. Except for "Suffragette City" on Ziggy Stardust, the song selection is perfect. Ironically, radio stations always and only play the worst song from that album....which is "Suffragette City".
(I think it's the DJ's passive/aggressive tendency to annoy us from time to time......but I could be wrong.)

????????????????????????????
to each their own

I would say the worst is easily "It Ain't Easy".

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 13, 2012 9:37:08 AM PST
Actually, I'm not sure how one who likes 'Ziggy' would not like any other Glam-era Bowie albums. They're all great!

That's my least fave song on 'Ziggy' too, but the whole album is brilliant really, not a bad song on it.

Discriminating tastes? ;~}

Suffragette City is a ripping rocking tune, so I just don't get what there is to not like about it except over exposure. Do you have something against whores?
