A TRIBUTE TO DAVID BOWIE

“David Bowie, the chameleon-like star who transformed the sound — and the look — of rock with his audacious creativity and his sexually ambiguous makeup and costumes, died of cancer Sunday. He was 69 and had just released a new album.

Bowie, whose hits included “Space Oddity,” ”Fame,” ”Heroes” and “Let’s Dance,” died surrounded by family, representative Steve Martin said early Monday. The singer had fought cancer for 18 months.

Long before alter egos and wild outfits became commonplace in pop, Bowie turned the music world upside down with the release of the 1972 album, “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars” which introduced one of music’s most famous personas. “Ziggy Stardust” was a concept album that imagined a rock star from outer space trying to make his way in the music world. The persona — the red-headed, eyeliner wearing Stardust — would become an enduring part of Bowie’s legacy, and a touchstone for the way entertainers packaged themselves for years to come.

Bowie turned 69 on Friday, the same day as he released a new album called “Blackstar.”

    Bowie was a rock star, so he had a lot of hits. Maybe, one of my favorite songs by D. Bowie is “Heroes”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tgcc5V9Hu3g
