The man who just days ago left this world behind following an 18-month battle against cancer was no "rock legend" like the others. Passing through decades and fashions in this way has always conferred upon David Bowie chameleon status, a truly singular artist who successfully reinvented himself constantly, constantly calling social and indeed musical norms... Whether glam, new wave, funk or soul, disco or electro, Bowie has endorsed all genres; sometimes even ahead of his time. From Major Tom to Ziggy Stardust, From Aladdin Sane to Thin White Duke, Bowie travelled around the world, from London to New York via Berlin, and back again. A geographical, physical, intellectual, dense and quite fascinating mix of elements that conspired to make David Bowie a world icon of modern culture and a pioneer of pop music. Hardly time to digest everything else before he presented us with his 25th studio album, released on the very day of his 69th birthday: Blackstar.
