David Bowie Dies at 69
BY: Brandon Harris
In 1996 Bowie was introduced to the rock and roll hall of fame. With two Grammy awards, three Brit awards, and an honorary Doctorates in music from Berkeley he accomplished a lot in his life. Bowie sold over 140 million albums in his life time as well. In 2003 he also turned down a knighthood as well. He as an artist turned down a lot of honorary positions stating he did not understand what they were for, and did not spend his whole life working for them.
Sadly yesterday only two days after the release of his latest album black star, David lost his life to liver cancer, His music will live on for generations though, and we will always remember the impact he had on modern music.
