David Bowie… Shear Artistic Genius
I’ve been taking in how David Bowie (David Robert Jones to his family who had died 18 months after being diagnosed with terminal cancer of the liver) left this world and no, I can’t say that I was ever a “superfan” but, my favorite song is “Fame” (written and recorded with John Lennon).
If you follow the work of one of the great philosophers Aristotle, you would see uncanny similarities that align art with a perfect tragedy.
Here’s David on his birthday (1.8.2016) just 2 days before he died.
Bowie left this world giving everyone such an amazing piece of himself with his last video release of the song “Lazarus”. The Lazarus video was released 1 day before his birthday… 3 days before his passing.
David Bowie masterfully shined through his art regardless of circumstance or fear and gave the world something so pure and emotional… it is shear artistic genius. RIP Mr. Bowie (1.8.1947-1.10.2016).
