We here at Inner Edge Music would like to send our condolences to friends, family and fans across the globe for the untimely passing of one of our biggest musical idols, Mr. David Bowie (aka David Robert Jones) who succumbed to his battle with cancer today. We were just contacted a few minutes ago with the devastating news.
Tears stream down from our cheeks right now as we post this. David just released his new album two days ago. Last month, when interviewing Martha Davis and Marty Jourard from the Motels, we all talked about the potential for catching David on a possible upcoming U.S. tour. Martha herself addressed David directly during our interview, congratulating him on his recent music video for “Blackstar” and communicating her hope in meeting with him during one of their upcoming concerts. It was with such optimism that we all looked forward to 2016 being the year of David’s resurgence on the music scene, with the lofty aspiration of possibly even getting to see him in concert. This was one of my biggest unfulfilled concert-going “bucket list” items and I’m still reeling with the realization that I will never actually have the chance to see one my idols perform live on stage.
