David Jones, who was born in London in 1947 as David Bowie, passed away in January 2016, after having been battling cancer for 18 month. Bowie was a performer with an unpredictable style, mixing European jadedness and American rhythms, as well as his changing personas. Bowie, a gaunt and intelligent performer, brought an open theatricality to popular music and an androgyny that redefined what it meant to be a rock star. In 1996, he was inducted into Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
Warner Music Group and the Bowie estate reached a deal last year that granted Warner Music worldwide rights to Bowie’s entire recorded music catalogue from 1968.
