Memorabilia Monday: The Prestige of David Bowie
Unofficial or bootleg releases are not typically notable when reviewing the legacy of musical potency. However, when considering the indelible mark forever imprinted on music artistry by Mr. David R. Jones (Bowie), we take a moment to highlight a rare piece of bootleg memorabilia.
On January 9, 1997, David Bowie celebrated his legendary 50th birthday celebration at New York City's Madison Square Garden in front of nearly 15,000 fans. Billy Corgan joined David Bowie onstage for live renditions of "All The Young Dudes" and "Jean Genie".
This particular bootleg vinyl provides fans with a glimpse into the reverential relationship between Billy Corgan and David Bowie. The transcendence of art, music, and celebrity will never be forgotten, and remain as strong today as they ever were. Whether you remember David as the Brixton Boy, Ziggy Stardust, or the Thin White Duke, his impact on the world remains substantial and timeless.
