On January 10th we lost one of the most influential musicians of all time. I fell in love with David Bowie when I was about 4 years old. My brother, Bob, is 13 years older than I am. He was a hippie at the tail end of that era, and has always had an amazing taste in music. He was and remains a huge Bowie fan, and that is where I first heard the great man as a child. I'm 48 years old now, and David has been my idol from those early days. His chameleon like tendency to change has enabled him to reach so many different types of people, there's a style for pretty much everyone. It's been a very hard week for me, the knowing that he is gone from this earth, that there will be no more.  His latest album, Blackstar, was his parting gift to the world, and such a gift it is.

I remember when Let's Dance came out on MTV. From there he had a constant string of great songs. It blew my mind that when I found out later that he had been making music much earlier and with completely different personalities. I don't think I've ever heard a Bowie song that I didn't like

Funny that you would mention Hotel California...with the subsequent loss of Glen Frey. He was an alumnus of my high school. His shirt in this pic is from our school. George A Dondero High School, Royal Oak, Michigan.

ETA Can we just pretend The Laughing Gnome never happened?
