David Bowie tops UK charts with comeback album
LONDON, March 17 | Sun Mar 17, 2013 4:03pm EDT
(Reuters) - David Bowie returned to the top of the British album charts on Sunday for the first time in 20 years with a collection of new recordings acclaimed by one critic as the "greatest comeback in rock'n'roll history".
"The Next Day", recorded in secret over two years, shot straight to number one in its first week on release, shifting over 94,000 copies to become the fastest-selling album of 2013, the Official Charts Company said.
Bowie surprised fans and the music industry in January with the unexpected release of the single "Where Are We Now?" on his 66th birthday and the announcement that an album of fresh recordings would be issued in March.
He had shunned the limelight since suffering a heart attack on tour in 2004 and last performed on stage since 2006.

Son of a gun! Those old rockers don't like to fade away do they! But he/she has had some pretty good songs.

” I wondered why the rock was getting larger. Then it hit me.

I got a kick out of one of the YouTube comments, they said it sounded like an old man singing in a stall in a restroom. I assure you it is better than that.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
