It was a week ago today, I woke to read the following text message from NBC News “Rock visionary David Bowie dies at 69.” I didn’t realize until now that the artist battled with cancer for the past 18 months.
Death never discriminates. It robs every person at some point of dear loved ones whether one is ready for it or not. My prayers and condolences to the Bowie family.
Experimental rock, glam rock, or whatever Bowie’s genre was, wasn’t my preferred style of music. A few years back I stumbled across a duet that he did The Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth with Bing Crosby.
I remember Bowie’s first US#1 hit when I was 14-years old. I can’t recall if I knew it was him singing it or not until now.
#59 David Bowie: 69 facts In September 1996, David Bowie broke new ground, yet again, with the internet-only release of his single Telling Lies.

Painting Offered a Different Palatte for David Bowie’s Talent. His artistic ability extended beyond the stage. By expressing himself on canvas inspired him musically.
The world may never know another like you, Mr. Bowie. I bid you ado and may you rest in peace. Thank you for the music!
