The Changing Faces of David Bowie
January 11, 2016
We say goodbye to the iconic star who re-defined music again and again
The sad news has broken this morning that the legendary David Bowie has died, aged 69.
His official twitter account made the announcement earlier today, stating that the star passed away peacefully, after his battle with cancer.
‘David Bowie’ has been trending worldwide with over two-million tweets, which include sentiments from celebrated musicians and actors.
Bowie has been said to have re-defined the music industry several times over, both with his music, and his ever-changing looks. Starting out in the 70s as the androgynous Ziggy Stardust, Bowie wowed with his flamboyant appearance and trademark sound.
However, Ziggy was to be just one facet of Bowie’s musical persona.
Moving from Stardust to soul and funk, new-wave pop and electronica, and everything in-between, Bowie pushed boundaries in ways no other artist had before.
Bowie also turned his hand to acting, and featured in films like The Prestige, August, and (perhaps most memorably) Labyrinth.
Another of these transformations also included becoming a father. Son, Duncan Jones (born Zowie Bowie), tweeted an adorable picture of himself and his father, and expressed his grief.
Bowie fathered two children, Duncan to ex-wife Angie, and Alexandria “Lexi” Zahra Jones to model Iman Mohamed Abdulmajid.
Having accumulated a vast array of hit records during his lifetime, including his most recent album, Blackstar (released just two days ago) it’s clear that David Bowie will go down in history as one of the most iconic musicians ever.
