Video


"Blackstar" is an album whose entire production and meaning revolved around an impending death, an artwork that needed the end to happen. as the ultimate completion of this masterpiece, the last puzzle piece, death becomes a beautiful and satisfying conclusion, a spectacular last performance. death is accepted in its nature and as a source of vivid inspiration. even in his final days, Bowie managed to leave us with yet another revolutionary perspective on the human experience."ain't that just like me?"
Very well stated. His final masterpiece. Oddly, I had a chance to pick this up before it became scarce, and I'm sure David is smirking about that too.
