Tribute: David Bowie

Posted on January 11, 2016 at 9:51 am

David Bowie has died of cancer at age 69.  So we did not lost one of the singular artists of the 20th century — we lost a dozen.  Bowie was a musician, a performance artist, and an actor whose constant re-invention gave us characters like the Thin White Duke and Ziggy Stardust, as well as a range of movie roles that would themselves constitute an impressive body of work for any performer.  He starred in Nicolas Roeg’s “The Man Who Fell to Earth,” “Labyrinth,” Tony Scott’s “The Hunger,” and “Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence.” He played Andy Warhol in “Basquiat.”  He also starred on Broadway as “The Elephant Man.”

His music was heard on the soundtrack of movies as well.

May his memory be a blessing.
