No shame in not knowing about him but it’s better to be willing to learn about a musical genius than be the ignorant jerk with a “so what he was old” attitude…sadly I did see that comment on an article and that person is to be pitied.
The good news is, it is never too late to learn and you just might find a new hero!
So if you want to get schooled, might I recommend checking out:
1. “Dammit Why didn’t I see him live?”
2. “THERE ISN’T ANYONE LIKE HIM ANYMORE.”
3. “I gotta go to Brixton.”
4. “That baby in Labyrinth never knew how lucky he was just hanging out on Bowie’s lap.”
5. “Who looks that hot in a mugshot?? No one…the answer is no one.”
Struggling with the death of this artistic juggernaut the likes of which have never been seen?? I get it.
Here are some articles that may improve/enrich your cycle of grief**:
Step 6. Watch 1000s of people dancing in the streets of his hometown to celebrate his life. Think about that. Most of us would be thrilled to know our existence compelled one person to dance after we die…Bowie?? THOUSANDS.
**Disclaimer: There are a million fantastic articles/stories/experiences out there about him and I am well aware I didn’t even scratch the surface…these are simply some of the ones that made me smile and I’m hoping they do the same for you.
