Major Tom. Thin White Duke. Ziggy Stardust. Aladdin Sane.
Today (January 8th, 2018) would have been Bowie’s 71st birthday.
To honour his memory, his widow Iman shared one of the the musical icon’s baby pictures (taken in 1947) on her instagram with a simple caption: 1974 – Forever #BowieForever
In an article she wrote for Vogue, Iman said” “David gave me the most exciting, touching, and deliriously loving 24 years. Still, it was not enough— shockingly brief. And although I’ll never get used to losing him, David is nonetheless hiding in plain sight.”
Also released today, an early and rare demo of Bowie’s ‘Let’s dance’.
You can hear David celebrate as he nails the vocals with a, ‘That’s it, that’s it! Got it, got it!’ at the end of the track.
