Long Live The Goblin King (Happy Birthday David Bowie)

Jareth The Goblin King. Starman. Ziggy Stardust. 

Call him what you will. He was many things. But most of all he was David Bowie, one of the most influential musicians/artists of his day. 

A visual genius of the glam rock genre, he presented himself as an actor would in performances. His roles would change as he progressed. But make no mistake...he wasn't a 'all flash and no substance' type of artist. His music was indeed great and stands the test of time to this day and will for generations to come. 

Aside from a legendary music career he was a magnificent actor. I knew him from the '80's as a kid watching the "Let's Dance" video and as the Goblin King in Jim Henson and George Lucas' classic fantasy film "Labyrinth." A combination of dark whimsey and fantastical rock the film made a lasting impression and it is what comes to mind when I think of him, despite his iconic rock moments.

He was born on January 8th 1947 and though he left us on January 10th 2016 he will forever live on in the cosmos, through his eternal roles on film, and forever in the music.

Long Live David Bowie.
