On Sunday, we lost one of the greatest rock and roll icons of all-time.

David Bowie was known as a trend-setter with virtually everything he did – including his final departure.  Keeping his battle with cancer completely quiet for the last 18 months, he then released a new album with video just two days before his death – a final gift.  Thank you David!

Videos from the early 1970s are rare but these two clips give a good sense of his unique style for the era.  The first video is Space Oddity with David’s good friend Mick Ronson on guitar (the song was released five days before Apollo 11 was launched!).  The second video is the song ‘1984’ (off the Diamond Dogs album) from a Dick Cavett show in 1974:
