David Bowie passed away from complications of cancer. He was 69 years old and had his first big hit in the U.S. 46 years ago with the song Space Oddity. His vision and ever changing music were more than art, we lived in it, was influenced by it, and now all that is left is the memories.

Damn.

I started listening to Bowie later, actually not until the 90's because he was my sisters favorite so, of course, I had to listen to something else.

I love his range from Ziggy Stardust to this duet, one of my favorites:

:( This is so weird, because when everyone on Facebook on Friday was like "it's Elvis' birthday! It's David Bowie's birthday!" I was like "yeah, but Elvis is dead and Bowie isn't."

Good thing I know exactly where my Tin Machine album is!

An artist so far ahead of his time, he might as well have been from Mars...

Really enjoyed watching this documentary that he put out in 2013. If you didn't see it, try to check it out.
