If you look back at his discography, no one can deny the man had the ability to constantly reinvent himself and his music and still feel authentic. Just take a look back at all the songs the world knows: Let’s Dance, Heroes, Space Oddity, Rebel Rebel, Golden Years, This Is Not America, etc. And the many imagos he has created of himself over the years.
I am in total shock but also thankful for all the great music he has left behind.
Rest in peace Ziggy Stardust, Thin White Duke, mister Jones, you will be missed.
