What can we say about David Bowie in a few
words? Letís say that heís a man with multiple personalities who always
liked to explore several genres, at a musical level as well as for his
looks. Heís probably the only artist in history to have never made two
identical albums, and most of the contemporary musical genres were explored
at least once by Bowie on one of his albums, very often before it becomes
in. He was in fact one of the precursors of the glam movement which was very
important in the Seventies and Eighties.
Artistically, it had a rather poor period
in the Eighties (like so many other artists), but for the rest of his
career, between the mid-60ís and today, we cannot count many bad albums.
There are quite certain unequal ones, but his desire of experimentation made
him often inaccessible and misunderstood by a larger audience.
David Bowie was introduced into the Rock
and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996.
David Bowie died of cancer on January 10,
2016, two days after the release of his last album, Blackstar, that
was also the day of his 69th birthday.
