David Bowie: His life in pictures and songs

David Bowie died last night after an 18 month battle with Cancer.

His influence goes far beyond his music. Look at fashion and there was Bowie. Lifestyles were changed by Bowie.

David Bowie made it okay to be different....way different.

For all his notoriety, David Bowie was a very private person. He kept a low profile after his heart attack in 2004. His last musical performance was in 2006. You rarely saw him with his wife, Iman. When I heard of his death, I immediately thought he had another heart attack. He kept his Cancer diagnosis to those close to him. That was typical of Bowie.

The words legendary and icon are overused. They aren't today.

Here's a look at the life and career of David Bowie

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
