The man who practically invented alter egos has departed planet earth.

Around here, where alter egos abound, we’ve been Bowie fans for a long time. Remember this golden oldie, still gracing my sidebar, from my early days as Lady M’s Mirror Of The United States:
Just think, without Ziggy Startdust, there might never have been a Madonna, Lady Gaga or President Obama. Not that there’s anything inherently wrong with alter egos…butt I guess there’s a downside to everything.
Dedicated to the proposition that change can be a good thing, in the right hands: “Just gonna have to be a different man.”
