I wasn’t the biggest fan, and certainly not over a long period of time. I never saw him in concert.
Just a couple of comments…
His song “Heroes” is one of the most moving pieces of popular music I have ever heard.
On his album “Let’s Dance,” he had the creative vision to have Stevie Ray Vaughan perform as lead guitarist; before Vaughan was known to anybody, he was known to Bowie – having seen him play at Montreux. Vaughan – one of the best blues guitarists of all time – was selected to play lead guitar on what could be called a dance album by Bowie – one of the most progressive rock musicians ever.
