Music Legend and Icon David Bowie, dead at 69

Oh this one hurts.

I remember watching and marveling at David Bowie in the 80s. I considered myself a well-rounded music listener so I was always opened to different styles and during the MTV phase Bowie was a giant.

I just found out he was battling cancer and I am so sorry we have lost a great musical artist, one this generation will never see again.

From The Hollywood Reporter

“David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer. While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief,” read a statement posted on the artist’s official social media accounts.

The influential singer-songwriter and producer dabbled in glam rock, art rock, soul, hard rock, dance pop, punk and electronica during his eclectic 40-plus-year career.

Bowie’s artistic breakthrough came with 1972’s The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and theSpiders From Mars, an album that fostered the notion of rock star as space alien. Fusing British mod with Japanese kabuki styles and rock with theater, Bowie created the flamboyant, androgynous alter ego Ziggy Stardust.
