The definition of a true artist in every sense of the word and an inspiration to countless fans all over the planet, the great David Bowie gave the world an amazing 50 year career that was always 'cha-cha-cha' changing with every project.

He was a singer, a songwriter, a record producer, an arranger, an actor and a painter born David Jones in Brixton, London, England on January 8, 1947. Was there anything this guy couldn't do?

We started off the New Year in 2016 with the shocking news that he had died after a battle with cancer.  Portland, Maine celebrated his life and artistry with an incredible sold-out tribute show at the State Theatre on a cold January night soon after his passing. Two years later, it still hurts that he's gone. David Bowie had such a tremendous positive impact in our lives and he is worth every teardrop.

Happy 71st Birthday to the Thin White Duke from the Big Blue Blimp!

Watch David as Ziggy live on the Midnight Special in 1973 performing Space Odditythis might be the best thing ever!
