Paul Kinder deletes 'conspiracy theorists' views on the reported death of a 'conspiracy theorist' Rock Star

On June 5th, at 11.27pm, Paul Kinder, owner of the David Bowie Wonderworld Message Board started a thread, as a 'sticky' (then), with this statement:

As you are all aware...

People... just making sure that you are all aware that ANYONE can read everything on this board without being a member or logging in?

Conspiracy theorists... you do not think that any of his family and friends who read these type of comments would be incredibly upset and annoyed at reading them?

The bullying and name-calling posts are just simply embarrassing. Grow the fuck up.

I am only going to delete them, so there's no point whatsoever.

It was quite funny to read Mr.Kinder refer to 'conspiracy theorists' in such a way as to give the impression that the people he's labelling in this way are an entirely different-thinking bunch of people to David Bowie, and his family and friends. In reality, it is hardly surprising that David Bowie would attract 'conspiracy theorists' as he was just as much one of them as anyone currently posting on the Bowie Wonderworld Message Board!.........

Speaking to Roy Hollingworth, in 1973, he seemed to think he had worked out who was running the world:

"You see Roy, I've gone through a lot of changes... A whole lot of changes. It's all happened on my way back from Japan. You see Roy. I've seen life, and I think I know who's controlling this damned world.

And after what I've seen of the state of this world, I've never been so damned scared in my life."

And, around the end of 1974, he told another journalist, Bruno Stein:

"I used to work for two guys who put out a UFO magazine in England... About six years ago. And made sightings six, seven times a night for about a year when I was in the observatory. We had regular cruises that came over. We knew the 6.15 was coming in and would meet up with another one. And then they would be stationary for about half an hour, and then after verifying what they'd been doing that day, they'd shoot off.

But I mean, it's what you do with the information. We never used to tell anybody. It was beautifully dissipated when it got to the media. Media control is still based in the main on cultural manipulation. It's just so easy to do. When you set up one set of objectives toward the public and you've given them a certain definition for each code word, you hit them with the various code words and they're not going to believe anything if you don't want them to...."

Especially during the 1970s, David Bowie was given to making 'conspiracy theorist' statements regarding rock music, the world and beyond:

According to biographer, Christopher Sandford - '..For years, whenever he walked home from Beckenham Junction, he complained of a "buzzing in the head" caused by the Crystal Palace transmitter, whose pulsing red lights were "fucking up my mind"...'

He believed in a race of Supermen - homo superior - whose arrival was fully expected, if not imminent (a belief conveyed lyrically in the song 'Oh! You Pretty Things').

Extraterrestrials were surveying our planet and had crash-landed.

He thought that rock music was "letting in lower elements and shadows"... Who or what exactly they were (are) and how they related to people, or extraterrestrials / homo superior, or the pulsing red lights of the Crystal Palace transmitter, who knows?

It seems that throughout the 1970s and later, there was not a single interviewer of Bowie who was sufficiently fascinated by the 'conspiracy theorist' statements that he made to seriously engage with them to a substantial extent.

Hence, we are only left with pieces of a 'conspiracy theorist Bowie' puzzle, and, unless a major part of this puzzle has been left behind currently hidden away somewhere, waiting to be discovered, it seems that all of these pieces put together will remain insufficient to complete what will continue to be perceived by myself and some others as being a highly enigmatic picture, with global and cosmic implications.
