The iconic David Bowie passed away two days ago after a battle with cancer, and the response from the music world has been incredible. I know this is a metal website, but we are music fans at heart, and Bowie was one of the greats of our time. His influence simply crosses across all genres of music, including the metal scene. Dream Theater‘s Jordan Rudess was one of those in our scene strongly affected by Bowie’s death, and he decided to pay tribute yesterday by posting a beautiful rendition of “Space Oddity” that you can watch below. Well done Jordan, and RIP David Bowie.
Here’s the original by David Bowie. He will be missed.
