A Valediction: David Bowie

Reporting on the death of David Bowie is almost impossible. It’s difficult to remain objective about a figure whose many incarnations so thoroughly transmuted pop, who seemed capable – right to the last – of identifying cultural fault-lines and making them sing to his so very unique vibration.

But he has died, and some words must suffice. First, the facts: born David Robert Jones in 1947, Bowie came of age in a Britain that was resolutely black and white. A teenage Mod, David Jones quickly developed a lust for fine couture, an awareness of fashion’s power to both shock and inspire.
