It’s been more than 40 years since the voice of David Bowie was heard over the radio for the first time. In 1969 the first single ‘Space Oddity’ was rush-released (according to Wikipedia) on July 11th to climax the Apollo 11 moon-landing.
Since it’s been a rollercoaster ride and the world has become several significant melodic milestones richer. David Bowie is still with us and being one of the key inspirations to this blog (check ‘About Latebar‘) it is only natural that we pay our tributes to the british artist.
David Bowie was one of the first artists to really embrace the internet and all the possibilities of direct interaction with fans it provides. Around the internet the birthday is celebrated by the fans.
One Twitter-feed you can follow #bowiebirthday and a special birthday site with videos has been set up and (of course) ultrafan Peter ‘Starman’ Jones has set up a Facebook-celebration-page in Bowie’s honour.
