Mick Ronson's daughter about meeting Axl with her dad

Recommended Posts

Mick Ronson was a hugely underrated guitarist. The riffs he came up with were iconic and escalated Bowie's songwriting prowess to a whole different level.

Axl don't have the voice for em.  Bowie songs I mean.  And I'd've put money on him and Slash not knowing White Light/White Heat.  Shame Stevo left when he did because he definitely knew it, he covered it in The Professionals.

:lol:

What, about Axl not having the voice?  I'm not saying he's a shit singer, he's clearly a fantastic singer with more than enough in the way of vocal registers and such, he's just very...large, very grand, its not really what Bowie songs need, in the same way its not what Sympathy for the Devil needed.

He could do one of the ballad-y songs, Rock N' Roll Suicide for example.

I dunno, I can imagine him doing a darker more ominous and intense 'Ashes to Ashes' or a raspy 'Life On Mars'

I wish Axl would do some more softer songs in the way of Patience or the beginning of Dead Horse.

That would be cool, there are a few I would like to hear.

I could imagine Axl doing a cool version of Rebel Rebel with his normal register singing voice

I stuck on the soundtrack to Ziggy last night and then the Santa Monica 72 gig that was released on vinyl a few years ago. Ronsons backing vocals along with his guitar playing are such a huge part of that "Ziggy" sound.

Axl has (or used to have) many voices, I think he could find one that fits. Lyrics is another question. Bowie's lyrics are a tad too weird for Axl to pull off, I think. Nonetheless, would like to hear that... but not Rebel Rebel or others that everyone covers. I'm thinking more of something like 5 Years (one of my favs).

Ashes to ashes would have been interesting with his 90's "You ain't the first / Bad Obsession voice. 👌

Good call, that would be cool.
