Bowie. Too much Zappa fanboyism lately. It's turning into ZappaBanter.

Bowie is the better songwriter
Zappa is the better musician

As I listen to music primarily for songs rather than musicianship there's only one winner here.

Urb's RYM Stuff

For me it's David Jones, his 1960's output is by far his best but his Glam Stuff is a very good place to start. The work he and Mick Ronson created between 70 and 74 is some of the finest stuff ever written.

It also should be said he produced two of the best albums of the 1970s, with Transformer and Lust for Life.

Its also about his influences, I would have prefered it if it was a Kinks v Velvet Underground final, but it was not to be, but Bowie is the next best thing to that.

I like Zappa, but Bowie is what I was brought up on, and more of his stuff is around the gaff, so he's my man for this final (But not for the competition mind, that would be The "robbed" Kinks......just for the record)

I need to listen to Bowie again because I clearly can't understand the appeal. He is very cool, but his music, albeit interesting, just doesn't seem to impact me. It always feels like he is behind a mask when I listen to it.
