David Bowie was and still is truly a gift to rock music fans everywhere. There will never be another David Bowie, an artistic genius who enthralled generations of aspiring musicians and music lovers the world over with the many fine recordings and concert tours he created seamlessly for many years.
Celebrating over five decades in the music business, this English native initially captivated millions of kids in the '70s with his Ziggy Stardust persona. He drove the rockers mad with his stellar concerts and dynamic presence on the stage. As David moved on and started venturing into other fields of music, film and art, he soon emerged as one of the early founders of alternative and ambient music with albums like Low and Heroes. At the turn of the millennium, Bowie scored a new legion of fans with more harder edged recordings like his 2003 platinum masterwork "Reality".
"Reality" kicks things off with the hard rock sound of New Killer Star. This radio and fan favorite graced alternative and rock radio stations and helped bolster even further the rest of the LP with follow-up hits like Never Grow Up and Bring Me the Disco King featuring longtime Bowie guitarists Earl Slick and Carlos Alomar, and stellar revisits of George Harrison's Try Some, Buy Some and The Modern Lovers punk classics Pablo Picasso. All in all, a truly remarkable album which continues to pave the way for a whole new level of fans as David Bowie enthusiasts consider this to be one of his best late career albums.
