One of the few artists to make truly great, cutting edge and influential music for over a decade - and then add to this his influence on other contemporaries, e.g. Lou Reed. Can't not give him 100/100.

From Willie24 11/09/2013 18:00
Very few artists of the rock genre tried as hard, in so many ways and for so long to become a pop star as young David Jones who hailed from South London.

Although he secured a recording contract a frustrated Bowie had little commercial success. In the end Bowie’s perseverance paid off when Space Oddity made the UK singles chart at # 5. Any thoughts that Bowie had that he had ‘made it’ soon evaporated when his follow up releases failed to have an impact.

Under the guiding hand of legendary producer Tony Visconti and with the musical support of his lead guitarist Mick Ronson team Bowie started to form a musical identity and image. During the early 1970’s ‘glam rock’ was at its peak in the UK and everyone from T Rex to Sweet were wearing dodgy makeup, feather boas and sequined costumes which would provide some glitz and glamour to a dark and dour Britain. The vast majority acted and sounded like macho rock bands who had found a very large dressing up box – it was all very tongue in cheek.

Shrewdly, Bowie saw it differently, and with his androgynous appearance, mime, stage craft, superb costumes and diverse musical influences took glam rock to an unparalleled level of sophistication creating complex characters that would mesmerize and appeal to fans of both sexes and all sexual persuasions. During this period Bowie produced some truly great albums although big time success in the US would not materialise until 1974. The crucial thing about Bowie during this period was the development of a series of musical and performance ‘personas’ notably Ziggy Stardust.


Bowie is one of the few performers who has been able to reinvent himself musically and stylistically over and over again in reaction to the ever changing musical and cultural environment. Only Madonna has been as successful in this respect, but Bowie did it first. When looking at Bowie’s achievement one is left with the feeling that this highly intelligent, articulate and creative individual with a huge ambition, drive and artistic bravery would be successful in what ever field he chose to pursue.

He is an inspiration to thousands. A remarkable songwriter who was the first artist to reinvent himself before it became the norm to do so, which he has done on numerous occasions. The 5 studio albums from Station to Station - Scary Monsters (1976-80) is some of the best music you could ever want to hear, add to that Hunky Dory, Aladdin Sane, Ziggy Stardust, Outside and Heathen & you have an amazing collection.

David Bowie es fenomenal y extraordinario, su música tan sofisticada y vanguardista lo hacen el mejor artista de todos los tiempos, su manera de reinventarse cada vez a sí mismo, sus años en la música, todo el cambio que ha visto y en el que ha participado como uno de los mejores.
