It’s with something of a heavy heart that Adam & Mike arrive at Blackstar.

A monolithic epitaph by an unparalleled creative force, it’s still hard to say goodbye to David Bowie. Despite ‘Blackstar’s inherent qualities there’s no getting away from the undercurrent that infects the album.

Let’s not dwell on the sadness. Let’s celebrate an outstanding music achievement. Maybe we’ll get some insights from Documentarians #1 Vox Pop man Tony Visconti? Will Donny McCaslin sound like Bob Geldof? Who’s to say?

Ep. 28 – Blackstar is available now on iTunes, Acast, Stitcher, Pocket Casts and apparently Over Casts (not heard of that one)
