The Next Day - David Bowie. Wow. Most elderly rockers i think should just hang it up (looking at you Rolling Stones) but Bowie delivers big time.

The new Bowie is a lesson to everyone, not just the Stones. He just schooled every rock act in the world.

Huh, just got this in my inbox:

David Bowie’s 'The Next Day' Debuts #1 on Charts in 12 Countries and Tops iTunes Chart in Over 60 Countries

First Album in Decade Sparks Passionate Global Response

New York, NY – March 20, 2013 – David Bowie’s new album 'The Next Day' (ISO/Columbia Records) has debuted at #1 in the U.K., Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Sweden and Switzerland a week after its release, and has topped the iTunes chart in over 60 countries across the world. The album is scoring landmarks for Bowie, including his highest-ever chart position in the U.S. (#2), and the title-holder as the fastest-selling album of the year so far in the U.K.

'The Next Day' has already achieved Gold status in the U.K., Austria, France, Ireland, Poland and Sweden, is the musician’s first-ever #1 in Germany, Netherlands, Portugal and Switzerland and is his first #1 album in the U.K., Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland and New Zealand in decades.

How to play the the Scuttle Buttin' lick

"There's a tiny bit of magic sauce in there, that makes it sound different when Stevie plays it than when most of us play it -- it's just tiny little details that are very easy to miss..."
