Tribute to David Bowie

Jondee here at the Labyrinth,


It seems like an ending with the loss of David Bowie whom he lost from a battle with cancer at age 69. His official social media lists this message, “David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer. While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief.” David Bowie was born as David Jones in London, England on January 8, 1947. he changed his name with the popularity of Monkee’s singer Davy Jones. He has released a new album, Blackstar, on January 8th, his birthday. He was known for his album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars (1972). His album, Let’s Dance, gave him popular play in 1983. “Modern Love”, “China Girl”, and “Let’s Dance” are classic. Bowie picked up a Grammy Award in 1984 for best short form video and Lifetime Achievement in 2006. His music is pure artistry and timeless. His film work included his portrayal as an alien in The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976). Bowie won a Saturn award for best actor for the part. The fans took to his role as the Goblin King, Jareth, in the fantasy film, Labyrinth (1986) directed by Jim Henson.
