My first inclination is to not believe it's Bowie but Space oddity was during his Ziggy Stardust period. Speckled Lad= Glitter? Space Oddity actually isn't sounding too bad. Although " A trip to space thwarted" makes it seems they never made it to space. Major Tom went up in space and cut communication once he was there. HMMMM.
could it be Sublime with rome? the dog has spots and everything would change with sublime with Rome in the mix
nah, speckled man's demise? how was lou dog brought to his demise? ... sublime with rome would be amazing though
actually the more i look at it, sublime with rome is plausible. seems too easy though. but people call dogs "lad" all the time, there's gotta be a reason she said "lad" and not "man" or anything. and rome coming in the mix definitely a watershed moment, they are working on an album too--- seems too perfect?
Just gonna throw Phish out there. Trey is speckled, was on the way to space (death if he didn't quit the dugs), had a demise (getting busted for drugs) that stopped him from using. This was a huge turning point as it got him clean and ultimately led to Phish reuniting (hence the watershed moment).

It sounds like it's two different things pointing at one. It's "A trip to space thwarted by a freckled lad's demise" This makes me think of Disney movies for some reason. But it could also be "A watershed moment otherwise"
