Like most, I grew up on David Bowie. Not necessarily his music, but through other means. Labryinth was the film that introduced me to him at a young age, which I watched ad nausem (and just rewatched again at Christmas), which did give me a taste of his music, but it wouldn't have been until later where I found several of his songs and listened to them. He was often referenced in pop culture, his songs would appear on soundtracks to television or movies, he guest appeared on several other things, many music artists found him to be a musical influence, like, it was hard to not know who David Bowie was. His style, his talent, his presence, he held quite a legacy in music and pop culture. Having him not be around anymore is kind of hard to accept, especially since the news, for anyone who wasn't aware of his diagnosis, came so suddenly. It's hard to swallow that this legend of a man is gone. But his legacy will live on, in our hearts and throughout history, and therefore he will forever be immortal.
Rest in peace, David Bowie.
