RIP David Bowie

Sad to hear of the

passing of a great music 

and film star – bless him


Sad to hear that David Bowie has succumbed to cancer just as he had released his (now) last album.   He had been battling cancer for 18 months.    Amazing man.

David Bowie’s style of music had kabuki elements which would have suited his exuberant style and of course he starred in Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence which I have posted about before and which is listed in my Films worth a look page.  He managed to reinvent himself with the times and also throw in some film work, not just MCML but other films.     Given that Christmas has just gone, I can’t not mention that wonderful collaboration with Bing Crosby on Little Drummer Boy, one of my all-time Christmas favourites.  The dialogue at the start is a little cheesy but I think they can be forgiven for that.

He’ll definitely be missed in the music world.






Any thoughts? In haiku form or not?
