Guitarist  |  March 2016  


BOWIE
When David Bowie released his final album, Blackstar, on 8th January nearly everyone here who watched the video of the title song shrugged and smiled and said something like, “Wow, that’s weird, even for Bowie.” Its dark, fever-dream imagery of deserted cities under an eclipsed sun were as striking as anything he had produced to date, but harder to decipher. Perhaps the jewelled skull inside the astronaut’s suit should have been a warning – Major Tom’s remains, slumped in the dust. Two days later, Bowie himself was dead. As the world absorbed the shock of his sudden passing, it also dawned that Bowie had pulled off a remarkable artistic coup, making musical theatre of his own demise and then leaving the stage in a puff of smoke while the crowd gasped, like a Victorian conjuror. The boldness, the humour and the quiet courage of this final gesture were entirely characteristic of his life in music.
