Great loss for the music world today – David Bowie has died at the age of 69. I frankly believe that his death has saddened most of us if not all, each for their own reasons. I am not familiar with his life, all his achievements, details of his amazing career and definitely not knowledgeable of all his albums.
However, I feel extremely sad today because for me, David Bowie defined one of the most amazing moments of my life, when ‘Under Pressure’ played on a River Thames boat ride where I viewed Big Ben for the first time. He was also the biggest part of my childhood – growing up watching ‘The Labyrinth’ some one hundred times.
I know that for millions of people he was a well respected musician and human being. I am really sorry I never got a chance to see him live but I am glad I grew up with his musical influence which I got to love and respect.
One thing is for sure – his talent, contribution to the world and extraordinary work will never die. Rest in peace David Bowie, your memory lives on xxx
“The truth is of course is that there is no journey. We are arriving and departing all at the same time.” – David Bowie
