Aging is an extraordinary process whereby you become the person that you always should have been.

David Bowie

To be known as the greatest chameleon in music is quite a feat, but it’s a fitting title for David Bowie. His vision led him through pop, rock, electronic, and industrial music, and expanded his creative scope into film, fashion, and beyond. Given that he was an artist known for constantly evolving his sound and look, it’s no surprise that Bowie was not a huge fan of nostalgia. In a conversation with “Gear” magazine in his early 50s, he eschewed the idea of “pining for youth.” He chose instead to live in the present, believing that with age comes authenticity, and a chance to be your true self.
