David Bowie who died in January 2006 due to liver cancer was a great singer and songwriter. Right after his death his last album Blackstar has attained large scale success. And although he is death, he is still hungry for success. Thus he matched with 12 albums in the top 40 as Elvis Presley.
When I read this news, I have requestioned myself like that ‘ Why does success come after death?’ But this was not true for David Bowie. He was working without tiring and he had 12 albums. And after ending his life Martin Talbot said that “Today is an awful day for all lovers of music. And the fact that David Bowie’s new album Blackstar was on course for Number 1 this week, even before today’s terrible news says everything about his continuing relevance – over 40 years since his first hit records.”
The other successful issue came out in UK albums chart top five : number one is David Bowie with Blackstar, two is Adele with 25 , three is again David Bowie with Best of Bowie, four is Justin Bieber with Purpose, five is again and again David Bowie with Nothing Has Changed
As a reminder he had kept his illness as a secret because he didn’t want to affect his career positively or negatively. And his death came suddenly. Though he has life with dignity , there were so many gossip. Maybe this is an inevitable for famous people.
Finally I want to give wonderful memory about him with her words: “I’m looking for backing for an unauthorized auto-biography that I am writing. Hopefully, this will sell in such huge numbers that I will be able to sue myself for an extraordinary amount of money and finance the film version in which I play everybody.”
