David Bowie: Home

David Bowie, 1996 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee

David Bowie (vocals, guitar, saxophone, keyboards; January 8, 1947 - January 10, 2016) was rock’s foremost futurist and a genre-bending pioneer, chameleon, and transformer. Throughout his solo career and in his alliances with other artists - including Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, Brian Eno and Nine Inch Nails - Bowie has positioned himself on the cutting edge of rock and roll. His innovations created or furthered several major trends in rock and roll, including glam-rock, art-rock and the very notion of the self-mythologized, larger-than-life rock star. - See more at:
