1962–68: Bowie did his foundational work with early bands the Konrads to the Riot Squad.
1969–73: Was his demonstrative work in psychedelic folk to glam rock that included Space Oddity, Hunky Dory and the ever classic fable that became Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.
1974–76: Were the Diamond Dog years of soul, funk and the Thin White Duke. His work during this period is some of his crowning achievements. The Man Who Fell to Earth gains film acclaim for his acting career.
1976–79: With albums like Low in the Berlin era, Bowie became the eclectic artist most fans know him for. Heroes was an important single during this era also.
1980–89: Bowie propels from superstar to mega star with albums like Tonight, Scary Monsters and Let's Dance. The Title track for Let's Dance reaches number one. He appears in the Jim Henson film Labyrinth also.
1989–91: Tin Machine and Bowie take a dynamically different approach to his work. Although a dream team approach for a band, the lineup did not work as the democracy that Bowie hoped for, but the music is very cool.
1992–99: The electronica approach for this era is complimented by the collaboration of Bowie and Trent Reznor. Nine Inch Nails becomes a touring partner for this period also. I'm Afriad of Americans is a classic statement of the new direction his music has taken.
1999–present: The internet, remixing and collaborations with the new social media, are the hardware of the neoclassicist Bowie movement of today. Bowie achieves artistic awards and merits long deserved from his peer community. Bowie plays Nikola Tesla in the film The Prestige.
Blessings on this birthday number 65.
Your Arizona fans love you as much today as ever.
In the words of biographer Thomas Forget , "Because he has succeeded in so many different styles of music, it is almost impossible to find a popular artist today that has not been influenced by David Bowie."
David Bowie has been many characters on stage, in film and on the airwaves. He has been his own prophetic bard, a traveling minstrel always telling tales of his own life in his songs. As Ziggy once said so profoundly, " When the kids had killed the man, they had to break up the band ."
Happy Birthday to Major Tom.
"After you see the two suns, there is only a short time before you will see a tremendous change in weather"
"in 203 BC, “two suns” were seen in the sky. There were
intervals of daylight during the night. Another appearance of “two suns” was in
185 AD. Chinese astronomers recorded the appearance of a bright star like a
sun in the sky and observed that it took about eight months to fade from the sky.
Yet another such phenomenon was observed on July 4, 1054 AD. It remained
visible in daylight for 23 days and was visible in the night sky for 653 days. It
eventually faded from view on April 17,1056 AD. This explosion appeared in the
constellation of Taurus"
