A Musical Icon Has Passed

One thing is for certain, David Bowie has left his imprint on music forever. He was a one of a kind artist, always going against the fray to the beat of his own drums. He put MTV on blast for not supporting Black artists, prior to that going into glam Rock that many Americans didn’t understand at the time, but loved later. The man was a genius and transformed music in so many ways and always stayed true to himself, to his own brand of uniqueness/individuality. My condolences to his family; you will be missed, but never forgotten.

David Bowie, the legendary singer-songwriter and actor, has died after a long battle with cancer. He was 69.

One of the most original and singular voices in rock & roll for nearly five decades, Bowie championed mystery, rebellion and curiosity in his music. Ever unpredictable, the mercurial artist and fashion icon wore many guises throughout his life. Beginning life as a dissident folk-rock spaceman, he would become an androgynous, orange-haired, glam-rock alien (Ziggy Stardust), a well-dressed, blue-eyed funk maestro (the Thin White Duke), a drug-loving art rocker (the Berlin albums), a new-wave hit-maker, a hard rocker, a techno enthusiast and a jazz impressionist. His flair for theatricality won him a legion of fans.
