Rock Tzar is a jealous troll! Best duet ever and there are many gems on the Hot Space album, better than the trolls like him will ever own up to! I hope there are recordings of Bowie and Freddie on Cool Cat, that would be AWESOME!

Quite possibly one of their worst ( only beaten by Life is Real..) tracks EVER..from defintly their worst album ever.There are much better duets than this.Even Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree by Mel Smith & Kim Wilde.
