„I wasn't into glam-rock. I was just into him. I never really saw him as glam-rock. Actually, I liked T-Rex too. Electric Warrior was great. But Bowie made me think. I just got lost in it—Man Who Sold the World, Hunky Dory, Ziggy Stardust—that era. I thought it was just magical, although I was dead impressionable then. But I though he looked brilliant—I still do. I hated the following he had though, especially around the Aladdin Sane era—it just destroyed his mystique. He doesn't hold that mystique for me now—he's just a normal bloke, I suppose. But I remember in 1972 when he was on the telly doing "Starman"—I couldn't believe it! It was like nothing I'd ever seen before. It's meant to be a bit of an embarrassing admission now to have liked that kind of thing, but I really did. And I remember when I grew out of it and I couldn't get into Ziggy Stardust the way I used to. I felt really sad about it. I played it and nothing happened.“

— Ian McCulloch, Describing how he feels about David Bowie

„The ancients see me not, nor I, the ancients,
Though I see the ancients not, the Way they trod is before me,
Their Way before me, can I but follow.“

— Yi Hwang Korean Confucianism scholar 1501 - 1570
The old teacher never saw me; he lived long before my time. Though I may never meet him, I can see the road he traveled. With his wise road before me, what reason for me to stray?
