“As was the case with Miles Davis in jazz, Bowie has come not just to represent his innovations but to symbolize modern rock as an idiom in which literacy, art, fashion, style, sexual exploration and social commentary can be rolled into one.” Rolling Stone

From July 1969 when Space Oddity hit the UK Top Ten through to the flamboyant, androgynous alter ego Ziggy Stardust, spearheaded by the hit single "Starman" and the album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from March, David Bowie has created a modern canon of work marked by its constant re-invention and exploration.
This went on to feature his landmark Berlin Trilogy of albums, his collaborations with Brian Eno and Lou Reed right on through to mainstream American success. He recently released the unanimously acclaimed The Next Day.
