Good Bye David Bowie

11 January, 2016

David_Bowie_1976As you have no doubt heard, the Thin White Duke is dead.  While there are only a handful of his songs that I really enjoy, I loved his constant exploration of music and pop culture.  He also starred in one of my father’s favorite movies, the Man Who Fell to Earth, and one of mine, Labyrinth.

He has been part of the music and pop culture scene for as long as I remember and we are poorer for his passing.  But I like to think he would rather we enjoyed his music rather than mourn his passing, and, in that spirit, I give you a link to Let’s Dance.

Reason Magazine has a good obituary to Bowie here.

Update: But let me give the last word to the man himself, though the medium of music, his final video, LAZARUS.
