David Bowie has diedBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/en/article/david-bowie-has-died
On January 10, at the age of 69, one of the most important rock musicians of the XX century, David Bowie, died after a long battle with cancer. The British singer struggled with the disease for 18 months and died with his family.
Singer, songwriter and producer David Bowie has blown up the music world with his image and songs in the style of glam rock, art rock, soul, hard rock, dance pop, punk rock and electronics. Throughout his 40-year career, the musician changed his image and adapted to new directions in music, which is why he was nicknamed the "chameleon of rock music".
The artist's breakthrough came in 1972 with the hit Starman from the album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars. David Bowie mixed the style of British mods (British youth subculture) and Japanese Kabuki theater and created a bright androgynous alter ego named Ziggy Stardust.
Three years later, Bowie achieved his first major success in the American music market with the single Fame from the album Young Americans, which, by the way, was co-written with John Lennon. This was followed by the 1976 album Station to Station, which is considered one of the most significant works of the musician.
David Bowie's most famous songs are Let's Dance (1983), Space Oddity (1969), Heroes (1977), Changes (1971), Under Pressure (1982), China Girl (1983), Modern Love (1983), Rebel, Rebel (1974), All the Young Dudes (1974), Panic in Detroit (1973), Fashion (1980), Life on Mars (1971), Suffragette City (1972).
The last album, the 25th in a row, called Blackstar was released a few days before David Bowie's death on his birthday - January 8, 2016.
