There’s probably nothing that hasn’t been said this past week about the passing of David Bowie, but nevertheless, I wanted to pay tribute and commemorate the loss of this iconic pop superstar.
The influence Bowie has had (and will remain to have) on modern popular music is astounding and I’m sure you’d be hard pressed to find a person that doesn’t associate his name with a whole series of songs or iconic looks that he has presented throughout his lifetime.
There has been a lot of backlash on the internet about people grieving for a person they have never personally met, but in my opinion, Bowie’s immense catalogue of work and his presence in the music scene over decades validate this sense of loss an mourning that a lot of people all over the world feel very acutely.
I spent last Monday, when the news of his death broke, at Heathrow airport and whichever way I went, there was a Bowie tune playing. This celebration of his work and musical prowess alone show how much his music meant to so many people, and I don’t think that this is something people should bemoan or take away from anyone.
Now, I guess there is nothing more left to say than Thank you, David – forever and ever.
