Son Of 19th Century Pioneer, Jim.
The clipping above is from the genius pen of N.Y. Post music critic Joe Tacopino. Joe must be a big David Bowie fan. He also mentions in a previous paragraph how "Ziggy Stardust was a character known for flamboyant pantsuits." Thanks for your work, Joe.
This reminds me of the good ol' days of Hugh Wyatt and his clueless reviews for the Daily News, where he would read the hype sticker on an album sleeve and try to convince readers he listened to the music. (I was told he was really a podiatrist.) He once reviewed Talk Talk's "Spirit Of Eden" record as being a new release from the band "Spirt Of Eden" with his favorite tune being the single "Talk Talk."
I certainly don't go to the N.Y. Post for my music fix, but this still should never have happened.
