Bowie did so much musically. Without him and his contributions to music, we wouldn't have music the way we do today. Society itself would be very different without David and what he had to offer us. While I don't think Bowie will be AS relevant with future generations, I definitely think he'll always be looked on and remembered by anyone and everyone who cares about music or culture as a whole. As a huge Bowie fan who is too young to have seen him live in his prime, I acknowledge his supreme quality and the value of his work.
I am only thirteen and I still love to listen to him and even more from the 70s to 90s. Like Queen or the beegees. David Bowie will always be loved in mine and many of my friends hearts and will never ever be forgotten in the world of music.
David Bowie released an album on January 8th, 2016. He currently has an off-broadway musical called "Lazarus" that he wrote and produced, which revolves around his character in the 1976 film "The Man Who Fell to Earth." David Bowie has inspired many of today's current musicians and has managed to keep evolving throughout the decades to set the standards for pop culture.
David Bowie will always be a relevant artist, no matter what. His death is incredibly sad. His influence will be felt for years and years to come. He taught people to be themselves, no matter who they are. He portrayed that through music but it is a lesson for everyone.
In my opinion David Bowie is a rock and roll legend. I personally spent many, many hours listening to his music as a teenager and young adult. He is one of the few who is mentioned by young adults today. My own nephew, 24 years old, loves "Ziggy Stardust". I still listen to that album and remember that time of life as wonderful!
I doubt that teenagers or millenials have any idea who David Bowie is. Although it is sad he passed away, I don't think his music has been popular for many years. I know several of my friends' parents listened to him in the past, but I don't think they did anymore.
