A Star Who Transcended Music, Art and Fashion

David Bowie, the infinitely changeable songwriter who taught generations of musicians about the power of drama, images and personas, died on Sunday of cancer. He was 69.

A collection of interviews, documentaries, articles and clips about him.

Nearly thirty items, from Radio 4 and Radio 3.

David Bowie - a life in music. http://bbc.in/1P2Bkgi

From the archive: A confirmed futurist, Bowie anticipated a breakdown in music industry and media certainties, and prepared himself for the science fiction future he always craved. A future where his 20th-century music could still exist and still sound contemporary.

His impact as a musician, as a brand, as a sign of the times, has been as great as Dylan and the Beatles, his influence as an otherworldly pop star actually greater, and if you just want one example of what he got up to…

David Bowie dies of cancer at 69

這是David Bowie最後專輯Blackstar的最新派台歌Lazarus。專輯上週五才發售,當時大家都在研究專輯內各歌曲的歌詞是在說什麼,但現在知道他原來已抗癌多時後,大家發現,一切都變得好像容易理解了,似是一個知道自己快將離去的人的感受、道別
Look up here, I’m in heaven
I’ve got scars that can’t be seen
I’ve got drama, can’t be stolen
Everybody knows me now
Look up here, man, I’m in danger
I’ve got nothing left to lose
I’m so high it makes my brain whirl
Dropped my cell phone down below
Ain’t that just like me
By the time I got to New York
I was living like a king
Then I used up all my money
I was looking for your ass
This way or no way
You know, I’ll be free
Just like that bluebird
Now ain’t that just like me
Oh I’ll be free
Just like that bluebird
Oh I’ll be free
Ain’t that just like me

今天早些時候,他的死訊在Facebook和Twitter上傳播開來,其發言人史蒂芬·馬丁(Steve Martin)予以證實。



這位多才多藝的藝術家在上周五——他的生日——發行了最後一張專輯《Blackstar》https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kszLwBaC4Sw,並原定於在3月31日的卡內基音樂廳(Carnegie Hall)獲得表彰表演,參與者有the Roots、辛迪·勞帕(Cyndi Lauper)和山羊樂隊(the Mountain Goats)。他還創作了一部正在外百老匯公演的音樂劇《Lazarus》。

大衛·鮑伊本名為大衛·瓊斯,1947年1月8日出生在倫敦南區。1969年,他憑藉專輯《太空怪人》(Space Oddity)一舉成名,其身着緊身連體衣的分身形象Ziggy Stardust更是深入人心。1996年,大衛·鮑伊入選搖滾名人堂。

他的兒子鄧肯·瓊斯(Duncan Jones)在推特上確認了父親的離世:「很遺憾也很令人難過,這個消息是真的。我會離線一段時間。愛所有人。」


The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (often shortened to Ziggy Stardust) is the fifth studio album by English musician David Bowie, which is loosely based on a story of a fictional rock star named Ziggy Stardust.[3] It peaked at No. 5 in the United Kingdom[4] and No. 75 in the United States on the Billboard Music Charts.[5]
The album tells the story of Bowie's alter ego Ziggy Stardust, a rock star who acts as a messenger for extraterrestrial beings. Bowie created Ziggy Stardust while in New York City promoting Hunky Dory and performed as him on a tour of the United Kingdom, Japan and North America.[6] The album, and the character of Ziggy Stardust, was known for its glam rock influences and themes of sexual exploration and social commentary. These factors, coupled with the ambiguity surrounding Bowie's sexuality and fuelled by a ground-breaking performance of "Starman" on Top of the Pops,[7] led to the album being met with controversy and since hailed as a seminal work.[8]
