RIP David Bowie

David Bowie has died. This past week saw the release of his final album, Blackstar, on his 69th birthday. Producer Tony Visconti called the album a “parting gift.”

Reports of Bowie’s final years suggest a harrowing journey. His making music until the end demonstrates a truly indomitable spirit. It serves as a source of inspiration, particularly to those battling life threatening illnesses. As Visconti wisely notes, it was a valedictory gesture that embodied everything for which Bowie stood. Throughout his career he generously shared his life and considerable gifts with the world. He will be sorely missed.  Rest in peace.
