Dear all,

Another Monday has arrived and I believe I’m not far off to say that this is probably one of the saddest Mondays for music lovers… Last night the news about David Bowie’s passing, after battling cancer for 18 months, has wrapped the listeners around the world in sorrow.  A true icon and legend, who will always live with us through his music, Bowie is the man who elevated his music to what can only be described as an art form.

Rolling Stone magazine described him and his work “As was the case with Miles Davis in jazz, Bowie has come not just to represent his innovations but to symbolize modern rock as an idiom in which literacy, art, fashion, style, sexual exploration and social commentary can be rolled into one.”

Ashes to ashes, dust to stardust. Your brilliance inspired us all. Farewell, Starman.

ML
