On Sunday evening the singer David Bowie passed away after an 18th month courageous battle with liver cancer at the age of 69. He was an amazing singer and songwriter, who popularized the genre glam rock witch a lot of gay people are enjoying. He was a talented actor as well a painter. He revolutionize rock music. 

  
David Bowie was a musician like no other, he used imagery and gender bending tricks in his music videos. He was not afraid to be himself. Even if his music was not considered mainstream. That is what an artist should be about. He was always for equality, in a 1980 interview he slammed MTV for not playing music by black artist.

   
David Bowie is one of the first persons who came out as bisexual in a playboy magazine interview In the 1970s. And one of a handful of man in show business who considered themselves as bisexual. Even if he was married twice with a woman. Some rumors though said that he and Mick Jagger were in a relationship.

  
David was a revolutionary, a true artist and musician. My favorite song by David Bowie was written by David and Freddie Mercury and sang by Queen Plus Dave, the song is Under Pressure. He can also act. Dave was also a philanthropist. He gave his time for many years to Live Aid a yearly concert featuring the biggest artist of the 1980’s. 100 percent of the proceeds of Live Aid was given to charity. 

   
Lastly, David Bowie influenced many singers and artist, like Madonna, Lady Gaga, Iggy Pop, Adam Lambert among other people. He is just am amazing artist. People may hate him because he crossed dressed. I don’t care. Finally, Rest in peace David Bowie, you really really rock. I love you and your music. You are truly a Rock God.
