    Maybe it’s HIS biggest week, not just the biggest week of any album. Good for him and his family.

    Interesting that David Bowie’s music was so disliked by many people that it took his death to make enough people give him a number one album.

    The British are the ONLY people who follow the long dead charting business. EVERYONE else downloads torrents and YouTubes and trades files on the Internet like nothing else. The British not only ripped-off American culture, but they can’t even keep up with America and the rest of the planet Earth on technology and its uses. This is so laughable it isn’t even funny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
