music is life, music is breath, music is us

David Bowie

 

First Natalie, then Lemmy and now David Bowie? Music is losing too many greats. We have their recordings, but what are we going to do when all the greats have gone to the other side? Who will carry the torch?

I listened to Space Oddity when I heard and started just sobbing. I rarely feel that when celebs die. Bowie was an inspiration for me as a musician. He dared to be different. To be weird. To be unique.

  1. “Who will carry the torch?” Better: Who CAN carry that torch? David Bowie’s legacy is a bit like Thor’s hammer. Only he could do it!

  2. He surely was one of a kind. I played Rock ‘n’ Roll Suicide upon hearing the news and had the same reaction as you.
