RIP David Bowie

RIP David Bowie

Postby Jack of All Parades » Mon Jan 11, 2016 7:28 am

Heard very early this morning of Mr. Bowie's passing. I cannot claim to be the biggest fan; there are board members who honorably hold that distinction. But I do know he has a lasting value in music from the past fifty years. I was enjoying his latest record, out on Friday, the 8th, his 69th birthday, titled Black Star and recorded with a jazz quartet. It had a 'sound' that I was warming to in the past few days. He has a catalog that will last I think and one that is expansive enough to hold the interest of many. Eerie this last single from the new record as he is seemingly filmed in his 'winding' sheets:

His obituary in today's New York Times:

Agreed Jack. Very sad.
Words tend to get over used nowadays but he was a true legend and a genuine icon.
He definitely "changed the game" in so many spheres.
A sad day. :(
