Sound & Groove, Episode 64: "David Bowie Memorial, Part 1- Bowie's Influences"

David Bowie passed away from an 18-month battle with cancer on January 10, 2016- two days after his 69th birthday and the release of his newest studio album Blackstar. He kept his illness a closely-guarded secret so his death was met with shock, especially since he'd just released his new project with a music video to go with it. As it turned out, his dying days artistically were carefully planned out and when studied in the illumination of his passing, discovered to be a statement/commentary on his own mortality. Once a pioneering multi-media genius, always a pioneering multi-media genius. Here on the S&G Podcast, in this two-parted theme we explore the music that influenced Bowie at times of his career in part 1. 

This here is the 12th episode of 2015 for the Sound & Groove Podcast where we explore the music that helped make David Bowie the rock icon he became and the shape-shifting chameleon he turned into to further his career beyond the average music star. So sit back and soak in another  musical journey through yet another themed podcast for your listening enjoyment, the 64th time I've unleashed this podcast on an unsuspecting public. 

If you have been keeping up with S&G on Music of Evan's Mind, there is now a new host for this podcast on And if you're new to this podcast, here's the breakdown: Every month there will be a theme that the selection of music is centered around. It will be jam packed with my analysis, synopsis, anecdotes and other witticisms you might enjoy while I play edited versions of each tune (to make room for talk and for a good 7-9 songs per 45 minute episode). And not to worry, each month will contain a different theme than the last. Got it? Get it? Good. Happy listening to you all!

All comments, questions and feedback are greatly welcomed and appreciated! I encourage participation. Even though I drain an hour off your life by listening to the podcast then checking through the links, at least you don't have to fork over your money to me... though if you feel like, you know... But in all seriousness, let me now what you'd like to hear or see and I'll consider it. Popular approval doesn't always sway me but having fans or listeners get their input would be just grand!
