Remembering David Bowie
Toll the bell
Pay the private eye
20th century dies
David Bowie, "I Have Not Been to Oxford Town", from the album 1. Outside
There's tributes all over the internet today to David Bowie, who passed away yesterday after a private 18-month battle with cancer. From everyone. Musicians of all genres. Fans. Politicians. Religious leaders.
What I can say for me is his music - and his performances - brought me an incredible amount of joy. Hearing of his death was enough to bring some tears to my eyes this morning. We live in a world where if a politician dare change his views with time and experience he or she is a flip-flopper. David Bowie constantly reinvented himself yet stayed authentic the entire time. The word has lost a genius.
