David Bowie, Ziggy Stardust, The White Duke. He is the real hero. The man who personified a whole generation of people’s differences. The freedom he unleashed to all.
While everyone was playing and staying the same with their sound. Bowie was off into his own world doing something no one has seen or heard before. Changing styles of all sorts. He just seemed like he was always way ahead of everyone else.
Not to mention even as villain, talk about nostalgic..
He knew how important art was and how an individual can make an impressionable stand.
Bowie is still relevant in this day and age with influences and personalities coming about. “We can be heroes, just for one day.”
Here’s just one of my many favorites.
What is sad but at the same time equally beautiful is that his last album was his goodbye. He knew he wasn’t going to last long. Around the time he released it it was his 69th birthday. Truly amazing to think about, he died what he loved doing in a subtle way through lyrics and musical instruments.
Rest easy David Bowie
