Like everyone else I was really sad this morning to hear the news that David Bowie had past away. He has been part of my life for 40 years!
He was one of my earliest connection with modern (pop) music, right next to ABBA (I am talking about Sweden around 1975!). The album ”Young Americans” was my first meeting with him and I still have my record from 1975 (or was it my brothers, well I will keep it!). It has continued to be my favourite Bowie album and after a break I started listening to it again last year. Still fantastic.
I didn´t follow all his music escapades, but I have always felt respect and interest for him, he was one of a kind and a big creative force and inspiration in both music and art. And he was always there, always working and finding new musical paths… Now he is not with us anymore, but his music will be for many years to come.
Rest in peace.
