David Bowie's output from 1970 to 1983 is so remarkable and unique that it still baffles me that he is not recognized as the most important artist of the 70s. It seems difficult to find a genre that hasn't been influenced by him. Almost no bad records in 50 years of career and having his last two albums still being significantly better than most of today's "rock" bands are true testament to his legacy. RIP to David, Ziggy, the Duke, etc... Things will never be the same...

Late last night I was thinking about how David Bowie might be my favourite artist out there. There was something about him that told you it was ok to be different, to be a creative, to be an outcast. Because as long as there was someone like Bowie in the world - you're not alone. RIP.

All time great. David has touched on nearly every genre and not only has left a mark, but has changed the way it's done. So innovative, so legendary, so Bowie.
