David Bowie may leave troubled EMI 08 Nov 2011

  3. I think (hope) that we all may soon see many new Bowie releases. He may have been waiting for this EMI contract to end before releasing any new material.

  4. You know Rob, I believe you are correct. I too think Bowie was holding back on his music and let's hope so!

  6. I swear I saw an article that quoted Daddy as saying that Lou Reed's collaboration with Metallica inspired him to do more work, which he wasn't planning to do. I don't think I posted it here, but I'm sure I saw it on Twitter, and I'm sure I retweeted it, but I can't find it anywhere now.
