#BrokenBeats – Series Two – David Bowie


The unforeseen death of David Bowie in 2016 was a huge blow to the music industry. He was such an iconic figure, and widely regarded as one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. His career was marked by reinvention and visual presentation, and his music and stagecraft had a significant impact on popular music. His many alter-egos included the likes of Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane and the Thin White Duke. During Bowie’s lifetime, his record sales, estimated at over 100 million records worldwide, made him one of the best-selling musicians of all time. His classic albums include Hunky Dory, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, Young Americans, Station To Station, Low, Heroes and Let’s Dance. He departed this earth by leaving us with the remarkably haunting Blackstar, a record that did nothing but confirm the epic loss that we all felt at hisd leaving. This is a career spanning playlist.
