David Bowie - Stepping forward on David Bowies timeline of my favourites from Bowie's more than 250 published songs. This choice is from the album "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars", considered one of the greatest albums ever.
4. The following year, 1972 see David Bowie continuing with his extraterrestrial theme. Ziggy Stardust resulted in the question of "which one is the alien?". Regardless of society attitudes at that time, Bowie and this song have endured.
Bowie was the artist who most provided my primary interest in music and movement. Over five decades my constantly evolving eclectic taste in music has been influenced by his style. He is a multi domain artist with talent more broad than being simply singer-songwriter. His skill transcends multi-instrument musician, singer, songwriter, designer (costume and sets), artist, actor. To me he is a complete artist in the fullest meaning of the word.
