This is pretty amazing seeing Bruce playing “Rebel, Rebel.” I wish we could have seen him singing it with Bowie himself, but this tribute is just awesome.
David Bowie was one of the most unique and innovative artists of the 20th century. It wasn’t just about his incredible music, but the man was a true showman who reinvented himself and his look over and over again.
Bowie passed at the age of 69 after a battle with cancer, yet the news was a shock to most people who had no idea he was ill. He had just released a new album and I was just thinking the other day if Bowie had yet another influential turn in his career that would have an impact on music, style and popular culture.
Ten years ago we published our David Bowie Deep Cuts list as part of our ongoing series of looking back on the music of great artists. Check it out and you might be introduced to some great music from Bowie that you haven’t heard before.
His list of hits is long of course, and I wanted to post a great video, but “Rebel, Rebel” is one of my favorite Bowie songs so that seemed appropriate, though the video here just includes one classic Bowie photographed. Bowie was a rebel who will truly be missed.
They’ve both had incredible careers, but this video from Mick Jagger and David Bowie is just brutal. You’ll cringe and laugh out loud . . .
