SUNDAY MUSIC VIDS: David Bowie
David Bowie was THE original avant garde musical artist, pushing music from merely a series of catchy melodies to something far more cerebral, something closer to works of art. Long before Madonna and Lady Gaga, Bowie was constantly reinventing himself, from Ziggy Stardust to the Thin White Duke, understanding that music could be a full sensory experience. And even before music videos were really a thing, he was created mini-movies to compliment his music tracks. Who the heck needs drugs when we have David Bowie?
So, in honor of the legendary star's birthday and anniversary of his death this past week, take a trip with us through the weird and wacky and never-boring world of David Bowie!
