David Bowie did so much, so capably, in so many different styles, in his career that it’s pretty much impossible he didn’t appeal to you at some time or another. Furthermore, his influence was tremendous. I really loved what he did to shape new wave. Even when he was operating in a genre of which I wasn’t a particular fan, I appreciated the fineness of his craft. (I’m not a big fan of industrial music, but “The Hearts Filthy Lesson” is brilliant.)
God be with his family and friends. RIP.
