Labyrinth

Labyrinth

I genuinely believed that David Bowie would be around long into the future, or maybe a more innocent part of me thought he was the Starman and he'd never actually die. He was always there in the fabric of culture, being proudly weird, fantastical, gender-fluid, experimental, determined like few artists to be wholly himself. I regret it takes his death to clarify how much that's meant to me. Thank you for "I'm Afraid of Americans", thank you for "Sound & Vision", thank you for "Heroes", "Life on Mars", "Scary Monsters and Super Creeps" and of course, Labyrinth. Thank you for being a strange and beautiful man in a world where being a man can often mean something ugly. Good night, Goblin King.
