It’s hard to express how I feel about the passing of David Bowie who passed away at 69 years of age due to cancer. To me David Bowie will always be a part of my childhood due to watching and falling in love with his character “Jareth” the Goblin King in the movie Labyrinth. He brought so much colour and wonder to the music scene and I think alot of our music today is thanks to what he brought forth. My thoughts go out to David Bowies family at the passing of a wonderful musician and idol. I know that obviously David Bowie himself does not appear in the novelisation of Labyrinth which I own a copy of but know that every time I read it, I will see his face. He will ALWAYS be the Goblin King to me and I’m ever so lucky to have followed his art in both music and film as I grew up. An inspiration to the very end.
I know that he released his last album just four days ago and I know that this album was his way of saying goodbye to his fans, ever the artist to the very end. I have watched the following clip several times over the past few hours and the lyrics certainly struck me so if you haven’t seen this clip already then I really recommend you do, a true masterpiece.
