Falling Legends

We have lost two great music legends that influence generations of people and musicians. 😦

David Bowie

The British musician David Bowie died after an 18-month battle with cancer, two days after his 69th birthday.

David Bowie had a unique and special way of making music. He was like a chameleon, every album was different from the one before. He really was into visual and music experimentation. In every album he had a different face. 😎

I used to play Ziggy Stardust with my band back in the 90s. But my favorite Bowie song always been Space Oddity. 😀

Lemmy Kilmister

Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister, founding member and singer in the British heavy metal band Motörhead, died at the age of 70 shortly after learning he had been diagnosed with cancer.

Lemmy Kilmister was Lemmy! 😉 A bad-ass metal in your face icon. His music was an influence to me. He had a fast and heavy sound that also influence many other bands. I used to jam on Ace Of Spades back in the day! 😎

I saw Motörhead, Dio, and Iron Maiden on tour at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in 2003, and Lemmy was awesome on stage! :mrgreen:

P.S.

I really love this version of Space Oddity by astronaut Chris Hadfield and his great YouTube page. ❗

R.I.P. 😦
