David Bowie

Posted on Updated on

David Bowie could have been the patron saint of Media Studies. He invented the idea of a solo music artist, constantly reinventing themselves, which has been copied by everyone from Madonna to Lady Gaga.  He played with Postmodernism and understood the power of promotion, advertising and image, and he wrote good music. He has influenced almost every musician who has followed him. RIP.
