Ten Of The Best: David Bowie (5)



So many rock and roll icons have been taken from us recently, but for me David Bowie's death was the greatest shock. However, my goodness, didn't he leave with a bang, with such a theatrical flourish! Blackstar is simply one of the best albums he ever made (and that's saying something) — dark but not hopeless, innovative and genre-busting as always.

Did you watch the David Bowie prom last night? A mixed bag but with some magnificent moments.
Cheers,
