david bowie RIP

Only a couple of weeks into the new year and the world has lost yet another of its iconic musicians. David Bowie passed away today only a couple of days after his 69th birthday and also the release of what is now his final album.

Sadly he is yet another cancer victim and passed away after battling with the condition for the last 18 months.

Bowie, who's career pushed the boundaries of music, art and the imagination has influenced so much in the way of music over the decades.The general opinion is that if you like music, Bowie has influenced you whether you know it or not!  Bowie was truly an original artist in every sense of the word, and for generations has been a leading figure in British popular music culture, the like of which we will probably never see again.

Famous for such songs as the Man Who Sold the World, Heroes and Ziggy Stardust, as a small boy in the 80's with an older sister I will always remember David Bowie's first influence on me. Here he is as the Goblin King...
