 (The Six O’Clock Triple Shot is a daily feature of three songs that share a common theme, heard weeknights on 94.9 WMMQ)

Tonight, we celebrate another rock and roll birthday!! David Jones…not to be confused with The Monkess’ Davy Jones…celebrates birthday 67 today. Because of that potential confusion, David Jones changed his name to David Bowie, after frontiersman Jim Bowie and his famed knife, in 1966. Bowie’s first commercial radio success came with his single “Space Oddity” in July of 1969, when the single hit the top 5 of the UK Singles Chart. Since then, the galaxy has been the limit for “Ziggy Stardust”.

Ultimate Classic Rock’s Top 10 Bowie Songs

I was fortunate enough to see Bowie live on his “Outside Tour” on October 3, 1995. This was the tour in support of his comeback 1. Outside LP, featuring the single “The Hearts Filthy Lesson”; a song produced by Brian Eno and remixed by Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails, whom Bowie tapped as co-headliner for the tour. Needless to say, it was definitely a one-of-a-kind show. Here are the setlists from that chemically induced evening at The Palace: NIN; NIN/Bowie; Bowie

Tonight, we celebrate Bowie’s 67th with three ass-kicking rockers!! (Keep your “Oddities”, “Changes”, and “China Girls” for another time!!) Tune in tonight at 6:00 for “Suffragette City” and “Ziggy Stardust” from 1972’s The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars, and “Panic In Detroit” from 1973’s Aladdin Sane. The Six O’Clock Triple Shot, heard weeknights only on Classic Rock 94.9 WMMQ.
