David Bowie

It has been nearly two days since we learned of David Bowie‘s passing, and fans of the musician have been left reeling from the unexpected news. This past Friday marked the artist’s 69th birthday as well as the release of his 27th studio album, Blackstar – what critics are now considering to be his personal goodbye to the fans.

One of the most original and influential artists of his time, Mr. Bowie paved the way for countless others – Prince, Madonna, and Lady Gaga among them. Never has someone so successfully (and so cooly) been able to transcend the boundaries of art, music, and sexuality. He brought us Major Tom, Ziggy Stardust, The Man Who Fell to Earth, and what was perhaps my favorite, Jareth the Goblin King. Farewell, Starman!
