An artist known for never standing still – David Bowie passed away yesterday peacefully after an 18-month battle with cancer.
A singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, arranger, painter, and actor. Bowie has been a figure in popular music for over four decades, and is known as an innovator, particularly for his work in the 1970s. But his body of work continues into 2016 – his newest single BLACKSTAR releasing this month.
Shifting through various identities throughout his career, Bowie was at times known as Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, the Thin White Duke, the Man Who Fell to Earth, and other personae.
Expanding his career beyond music, he was most recently involved with LAZARUS, a new musical adaptation of THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH, currently running at the New York Theater Workshop.
