Few artists have affected music and the music business the way David Bowie did. His music lives on, and it's a career of incredible reinvention and musical diversity.
His parting words are more than poignant...
From the title track "Blackstar" of his new and final album:
"Something happened on the day he died
Spirit rose a meter and stepped aside
Somebody else took his place, and bravely cried"
And the song "Lazarus" from the "Blackstar" album says it all:
"Look up here, I'm in heaven
've got scars that can't be seen
I've got drama, can't be stolen
Everybody knows me now"
