David Bowie (David Robert Jones, 1947 Brixton London UK – 2016 New York USA) publishes 400 songs in 25 studio LPs during the 50 years between 1966 and 2016. In a 2002 interview, the singer wittingly and cheerfully relates how in 1963, his passion for music is drawn by Little Richard, Bo Diddley, the Rolling Stones and their likes. Ever since his 1966-67 recordings, Bowie however departs from dominant fashion trends – like the then prevailing mainstream pop, traditional rock or beat-pop – and favours instead an original musical world of his own with unexpected baroque melodies and sounds,  philosophical and lyrical dashes and theatrical representations. Throughout his 50-year career, he sits at the forefront of creative pop and delivers on the edge, a process that he discusses in a 1993 interview while phlegmatically pondering  ..’I suppose one of the more.. agonizing realities of life is the fact that all beauty decays in time…’
