David Bowie: A True Hero

This morning the shocking news broke that one of our biggest heroes and music genius David Bowie has died after an 18 month battle with cancer.

Bowie has played a crucial part in Britsh history and inspired millions with his individuality and outstanding creative ability. Not only has Bowie given us 25 albums of incredible rock music, but he developed the look and sound of the genre itself, with his wonderfully bizarre lyrics and controversial style in the form of alter ego Ziggy Stardust.

Bowie leaves us with endless classics, such as ‘Let’s Dance’, ‘Heros’ and finally his new album Blackstar which was released on the 8th January – Bowie’s 69th Birthday.

In homage to the Starman himself, we’ve put together a playlist featuring 10 of our favourite Bowie tracks which you can listen to here.

Thanks for all the great music David – we salute you!
