Re: David Bowie versus Elton John!

Bowie by far. Bowie is a very underrated songwriter, IMHO. He showed remarkable maturity early in his career and through the 70s made so many classic albums. Excellent voice and singer as well, of course. And showman.

Elton has a lot of great songs, too, but I think Bowie is much better.

Re: David Bowie versus Elton John!

Bowie even though I like Elton.

Guess this is the first time though that I see him announced as a glam rocker....

Re: David Bowie versus Elton John!

I like a fair amount of Bowie's stuff but this one's not even close for me - give me Elton John.

Re: David Bowie versus Elton John!

In the early days I would probably give Elton the edge, but over the years, Bowie has retained his credilbility, whereas Elton - hasn't!!!

Bowie therefore wins.
