The 58th Grammy music awards event, airs tonight February 15th, 2016 on CBS at 8 P/E and will feature a tribute to rock legend David Bowie. Animal enthusiast Lady Gaga will perform Bowie classics live!
Music icon, creative genius, and game changer David Bowie died on January 10th, 2016, two days after his 69th birthday. He released his last music compilation titled Blackstar, as a parting gift to the world on his birthday.
Bowie’s album Diamond Dogs has been hailed by most music industry critics as his body of work that catapulted him to untouchable superstar status.
The concept for Bowie’s 8th studio album Diamond Dogs released in 1974 on RCA records was based on George Orwell’s futuristic epic book 1984 about post apocalyptic earth. Bowie wanted to create an over the top theatrical production of the book and started writing music and lyrics; but the author’s estate denied him all rights. Instead the songs ended up on Diamond Dogs, which has lasted the test of time and remains a pop/alternative music classic!
Songs on Diamond Dogs include; Sweet Thing, Rebel Rebel, 1984, Big Brother, and of course Diamond Dogs! Bowie’s glamour rock persona, electric howling performances, and original music, broke the mold and changed the music industry forever….
David Bowie truly was one-of-a-kind and a rare breed indeed, and his amazing talent left us with many wonderful songs that take us to other places, through his vision and gift. He will forever be our Starman waiting in the sky…
