David Bowie: 1947-2016

The great David Bowie passed away on January 10, 2016 after an 18 month battle with cancer. What can we say? His legacy cannot be understated. A multi-talented trailblazer who made some of the most powerful music of recent times. I try to think of my favorite, but it's impossible to pick just one, especially since his lexicon is so varied. Perhaps "Heroes", "Space Oddity", or "Changes"? When I hear "Space Oddity" I get goosebumps. "Kooks" is a love song to my six year old daughter. His "Blue Jean" music video opened the door. And that's just his music. Bowie was also an actor, producer, songwriter, and style icon.
