Born January 8, 1947 as David Robert Jones, he is most known for his stage name David Bowie. However, throughout a six-decade career, he embodied many personas, both on stage and through metaphor. Perhaps the best known were Ziggy Stardust and Major Tom.
The number of artists and musicians who have had more transformative influence and inspiration on music, art, and culture than that of David Bowie is likely in the single digits. And low single digits at that.
Bowie debuted in 1967 with a self-titled LP and continued to release new, often groundbreaking music until his death in 2016. In fact, his final album, Blackstar, released two days prior to his passing, was, in essence, his send off to his fans.
From early works including “Space Oddity” to seminal later career moments, Bowie released more than two-dozen studio LPs and seemingly countless singles, EPs, live recordings, compilations, and more.
Below you’ll find a variety of posts, reviews, features, and lists from FensePost covering the Starman himself: David Bowie.

I broke the rules this week on my very unoriginally titled radio show on KSVR Mount Vernon. The Indie Music Show featured a few tracks that are, quite distinctly, not even close to being indie. And one of them kicked off the show. It’s the new track by David Bowie called “Where Are We Now?” Shortly thereafter, I crossed the ocean for a set from France, where I played a track by famed singer and Masculin Feminin actress Chantal Goya and another by Serge Gainsbourg.Read More »On Air at KSVR: February 15, 2013 Playlist
