I can't believe it has been 3 years since his passing.

Blackstar is one of my favorite albums of the 21st century and my second favorite album by Bowie.

Sadly his passing was the catalyst for my discovery of much of his music. He stands as my fifth favorite artist (music wise), and proudly so. I had a mini marathon of three of his many classics yesterday: Heroes, Ziggy, and Hunky. Plus I got through a good bit of Blackstar earlier in the day. Brilliant, brilliant artist. Sorely missed, but not for lack of great work to remember him by. Thank goodness he was so prolific and often incredibly consistent.

A very sad day indeed.   An artist who was in constant change and for the better.

Those are three awesome choices.  Hunky Dory is one of my all time favorite albums.  Such a loss for rock, everywhere.

I bought Blackstar the day it came out and remember thinking it was his best album in about 35 years. Then he died four days later and you realized that he made it knowing it would be his last album and the lyrics took on a whole new meaning.

I never really got into Bowie until Phish did Ziggy Stardust as their musical costume on Halloween night 2016. Been hooked ever since.

Its weird how a piece of work has a different perspective based on the events that occur in someones life.

Some of Bowie’s work is amongst my favorite by anyone.  Some of it does nothing for me.

My favorite Bowie album is Station to Station but there are at least 10-12 throughout his career that you can make a case for. His 71-83 run is basically untouchable in the history of rock music.
