It goes to show how influential an individual’s life can be when an entire nation talks about their passing at the age of 69 following an 18 month struggle with cancer. David Bowie’s life is one that can be described as one of the most colourful, not only through appearance but of achievements spanning across 4 decades.
Bowie’s first song ‘Space Oddity’ introduced him to us in 1969, however it wasn’t until 1972 that he exploded into the limelight as Ziggy Stardust, one of the most iconic styles in pop that embraced the glam rock era of the time, and a look that will continue to be recognised for many years to come.
Constantly re-inventing himself over the following years, there was never a dull moment to be a ‘Bowie’ fan, even today, his distinctive voice and the constant desire to pursue experimental sounds he gave us one last gift of ‘Black Star’.
So today, and for this year to come, go back through his albums and let his work inspire you, never mind what your profession or ambition in life, there’ll be some message or feeling that will strike a chord with you.
