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

    Every five years or so I decide to update this section. I can't believe I've been doing this for close to ten years. The last time I did this I was close to sixty years old. Now I'm just a few months away from the big 7-ZERO. Scary AF!!! I'm pretty sure I won't be doing an update when I hit 80, but you never know. But until then, lets just be grateful.
