I don’t think very much about the music of my youth, but some songs have a power to bring back some very specific memories. Bowie strikes those chords like few others, and I’m right back to some great times. Long ago.
He released his last album just last Friday. Some brilliant work, as always. He was also a visionary painter, printmaker and sculptor, and supported emerging artists through a revolutionary online sponsorship site. He was one of our time’s greatest creative souls. RIP Ziggy.
