David Robert Jones ,[6]​[7]​ más conocido por su nombre artístico David Bowie ,[8]​ fue un músico y compositor británico, quien ejerció a su vez de actor, productor discográfico y arreglista. Figura importante de la música popular durante casi cinco décadas, Bowie es considerado un innovador, en particular por sus trabajos de la década de 1970 y por su peculiar voz, además de la profundidad intelectual de su obra.[9]​[10]​

Nacido en Brixton, en el sur de Londres, Bowie mostró gran interés por la música en su niñez, finalmente estudiando arte, música y diseño antes de embarcarse en su carrera profesional como músico en 1963. A pesar de haber lanzado un álbum y varios sencillos antes, Bowie consiguió notoriedad en julio de 1969, cuando su sencillo «Space Oddity» llegó al top 5 de la lista británica de sencillos. Después de tres años correspondientes a una etapa de experimentación, resurgió en 1972, en plena era del glam rock, con su extravagante y andrógino álter ego Ziggy Stardust, gracias a su exitoso sencillo «Starman» y el disco The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. David Buckley, su biógrafo, describe el impacto de Bowie de esa época diciendo que «retó al núcleo de la música rock de la época» y «creó, posiblemente, el personaje más importante de la cultura popular».[11]​ La relativamente corta vida de Ziggy probó ser solo una faceta de una carrera marcada por continuas reinvenciones, innovaciones musicales y presentaciones visuales de todo tipo.

Bowie consiguió, en 1975, su primer éxito en Estados Unidos, gracias a su exitoso sencillo «Fame», coescrito con John Lennon y a su disco Young Americans, del cual dijo él mismo que era el disco definitivo del plastic soul . El sonido significó un cambio radical del estilo que le había hecho famoso en el Reino Unido. Después de esto, confundió tanto a su discográfica como a sus seguidores estadounidenses con el disco minimalista Low , la primera de tres colaboraciones con Brian Eno. Todos estos álbumes, conocidos como la «Trilogía de Berlín», entraron en el top 5 británico, además de recibir elogios de la crítica.

Después de disparejos éxitos comerciales a finales de la década de 1970, consiguió números uno en el Reino Unido con el sencillo «Ashes to Ashes» y su correspondiente álbum, Scary Monsters . Colaboró con Queen en el número uno de las listas de venta «Under Pressure» para, poco después, volver a conseguir un éxito comercial con su disco de 1983 Let's Dance, del que se extrajeron los exitosos sencillos «Let's Dance», «China Girl» y «Modern Love». A lo largo de las décadas de 1990 y 2000, Bowie siguió experimentando con distintos estilos musicales, incluyendo blue-eyed soul, industrial, adult contemporary y jungle. No salió de gira desde su gira musical entre 2003 y 2004 A Reality Tour y no se presentó en vivo desde 2006. Su más reciente disco Blackstar salió al mercado el 8 de enero de 2016, apenas dos días antes de su fallecimiento.

Buckley dice de Bowie: «Su influencia fue única en la cultura popular, ha permeado y cambiado más vidas que ninguna otra figura pública».[11]​ En la encuesta de 2002 de la cadena televisiva BBC de los 100 británicos más importantes, se colocó en el puesto número 29. Ha vendido, aproximadamente, 136 millones de discos a lo largo de su carrera. Ha recibido nueve discos de platino, once de oro y ocho de plata en el Reino Unido y cinco de platino y siete de oro en Estados Unidos. En 2004, la revista Rolling Stone le posicionó en el puesto número 39 de su lista de los cien artistas de rock más importantes de todos los tiempos y en el puesto 23 de su lista de los mejores cantantes de todos los tiempos.[12]​[13]​

Frases David Bowie

„I always had a repulsive sort of need to be something more than human. I felt very very puny as a human. I thought, "Fuck that. I want to be a superman."“

—  David Bowie
Quoted in this interview http://www.theuncool.com/journalism/rs206-david-bowie/ in Rolling Stone #206 (12 February 1976); a slightly altered version of the quote has appeared in various sources such as Fas Ferox - A Modern Day Mythology - World Walkthrough (2006), edited by Anna Young and James Curcio: "I always had a repulsive need to be something more than human. I felt very puny as a human. I thought, 'Fuck that. I want to be a superhuman.'"

„Steel on the skyline
Sky made of glass
Made for a real world
All things must pass“

—  David Bowie
Context: Steel on the skyline Sky made of glass Made for a real world All things must pass Ooo Waiting for something Looking for someone Is there no reason? "Heathen (The Rays)"

„See these eyes so green…
I can stare for a thousand years
Colder than the moon
It's been so long…
And I've been putting out fire…
With gasoline!“

—  David Bowie
Context: See these eyes so green… I can stare for a thousand years Colder than the moon It's been so long… And I've been putting out fire… With gasoline!

„Though nothing, nothing will keep us together
We can beat them, forever and ever
Oh, we can be heroes just for one day.“

—  David Bowie
Context: I, I wish you could swim Like the dolphins Like dolphins can swim Though nothing, nothing will keep us together We can beat them, forever and ever Oh, we can be heroes just for one day. "Heroes", written with Brian Eno

„I've come to the realisation that I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing half the time“

—  David Bowie
Context: I'm terribly intuitive—I always thought I was intellectual about what I do, but I've come to the realisation that I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing half the time, that the majority of the stuff that I do is totally intuitive, totally about where I am physically and mentally at any moment in time and I have a far harder time than anybody else explaining it and analysing it. That's the territory of the artist anyway: to be quite at sea with what he does, and working towards not being intuive about it and being far more methodical and academic about it. "Sermon From the Savoy", New Musical Express (29 September 1984)

„Music has given me over 40 years of extraordinary experiences. I can't say that life's pains or more tragic episodes have been diminished because of it. But it's allowed me so many moments of companionship when I've been lonely and a sublime means of communication when I wanted to touch people. It's been both my doorway of perception and the house that I live in.“

It's been both my doorway of perception and the house that I live in. I only hope that it embraces you with the same lusty life force that it graciously offered me.

„I had to resign myself, many years ago, that I'm not too articulate when it comes to explaining how I feel about things. But my music does it for me, it really does.“

—  David Bowie
Context: I had to resign myself, many years ago, that I'm not too articulate when it comes to explaining how I feel about things. But my music does it for me, it really does. There, in the chords and melodies, is everything I want to say. The words just jolly it along. It's always been my way of expressing what for me is inexpressible by any other means. What is very enlightening for me right now is that I sense that I'm arriving at a place of peace with my writing that I've never experienced before. I think I'm going to be writing some of the most worthwhile things that I've ever written in the coming years. I'm very confident and trusting in my abilities right now. But I've got to think of myself as the luckiest guy. Robert Johnson only had one album's worth of work as his legacy. That's all that life allowed him.

„Still don't know what I was waiting for
And my time was running wild.“

—  David Bowie
Context: Still don't know what I was waiting for And my time was running wild. A million dead-end streets and Every time I thought I'd got it made It seemed the taste was not so sweet. So I turned myself to face me But I've never caught a glimpse Of how the others must see the faker I'm much too fast to take that test. Changes

„Strangely, some songs you really don't want to write.“

—  David Bowie
Context: Strangely, some songs you really don't want to write. I didn't like writing "Heathen". There was something so ominous and final about it. It was early in the morning, the sun was rising and through the windows I could see two deer grazing down below in the field. In the distance a car was driving slowly past the reservoir and these words were just streaming out and there were tears running down my face. But I couldn't stop, they just flew out. It's an odd feeling, like something else is guiding you, although forcing your hand is more like it.
