Yeah, he really makes it his own - I don't take too kindly to Bowie covers by if anyone deserves to cover a Bowie song it's that guy.

You can really tell he had a hell of a time up there. It must be crazy to come back down to earth after all that time. Enough to send a guy completely bonkers, I'd imagine.

Great song in general :)

Nothing wrong with a bit of Bowie now and again!

There's something bothering me about his voice though, autotune?

This guy.... Chris Hadfield, pride of Canada, should quit his day job and start touring.  That was awesome.
