“Let’s Dance” was nominated for the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 1983, and if David could have moonwalked like Michael Jackson, Bowie probably would have won. it was no surprise that multi-media maven David Bowie, who seemed tailor-made then for the dawn of the MTV era in America when “Let’s Dance” was released, would later be among the first to embrace computer-generated gaming and virtual reality, which David discussed at length here, reprised on the album’s fortieth anniversary.

Did you know that the late David Bowie pioneered the art and technology “livestreaming” even before the new millennium? I was there in New York City when the Album Network teamed with David’s bowie.net to live stream his show from the Kit Kat Klub November 19, 1999. Here’s “China Girl” from that show.
David Bowie’s “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust” changed the trajectory of rock music, fashion, and gender social issues in just 38 minutes. Here are the late David Bowie and guitarist Mick Ronson with me In the Studio.

Songs include “Golden Years”,”Stay” ,”TVC 1-5″ ( Bowie said that the unused tune for the Man…Earth soundtrack was about a girl and her relationship with her television),”Wild is the Wind” , and the title song, often cited by post-punk bands including The Cars, Talking Heads, and Gary Numan as a major influence.
