Just watching this interview compilation on YouTube of some of David Bowie's interviews, (prompted by the recent anniversary of his death).
He really was one of a kind wasn't he?
So many famous people these days are so bland and so devoid of humour, intelligence and personality it really makes me miss genuinely interesting people such as Bowie and others from a similar ilk.
It wasn't just their brilliant songwriring and performing but the whole package. I could listen to him talking for hours, just like I can his singing.
Richard E Grant springs to mind as bein similar in terms of someone who has genuine and interesting personality who's interviews rarely disappoint because he always seems to have something interesting or fun to listen to.
People these days, (hone and abroad), all seem to bland and boring most of the time, with very few notable exceptions.
What say you? Am I imagining it?
I am not really interested in the lives of the famous. The ones that are not completely stupid, can stray in faux intellectualism, which can be embarrasing.
@k89bpa Taking Bowie as an example, he gote more interesting as he got older. His interviews during his Aladin Sane days were far from interesting.
I think that some of the youngperformers of today, eg George Ezra, are showing that they stand a chance of maturing into somebody interesting.
