Today I am blogging for a new round of the Inspriation Shopping Event in SL. Last round we celebrated Shania Twain. This time around we are celebrating the life and inspiration of David Bowie.
David Robert Jones, better known as David Bowie, was regarded by critics and musicians as an innovator for over five decades. His music and stagecraft significantly influenced popular music with record sales estimated at 140 million worldwide. In the U.K. he was awarded nine platinum album certifications, eleven gold and eight silver and produced eleven number one albums. In the U.S. he received five platinum and seven gold certifications and he was inducted into the Rock and roll Hall of fame in 1996. He passed away on January 10th, 2016. Two days after his 69th birthday and the release of his newest album, Blackstar.
If you are my age or older you grew up with David Bowie on your radio. Listening to the records in your basement or garage. Hanging out with your friends on a sultry summer day. Part of my childhood will always be tied up with his, to me, most iconic role as the Goblin king in Labyrinth. I can hear it now, “You remind me of the babe, the babe with the power…” In short he touched so many lives during his…. he will be sorely missed.
