The Last Panthers es como se titula la nueva canción compuesta por David Bowie. Según anunció el artista en sus redes sociales, esta se constituye como el tema de una serie de televisión británica del mismo nombre que se estrenará en Europa en noviembre.

“Se trata de una pieza musical oscura,  melancólica, hermosa y sentimental”, explicó quien dirige The Last Panthers , el reconocido Johan Renck, personaje que también ha desempeñado este papel de director en algunos capítulos de Bloodline, Breaking Bad, Bates Motel, The Walking Dead, y en videoclips para artistas como New Order, Lana Del Rey, Madonna y Beyoncé.

Even for a man with a reputation for radical reinvention, David Bowie’s latest move is surprising: the former Ziggy Stardust and Thin White Duke is to contribute songs to a musical about a talking sponge.

Bowie is one of several pop names lined up for The SpongeBob Musical, a stage show about children’s cartoon character Spongebob Squarepants. Joining him on an impressive roster will be Cyndi Lauper, John Legend and Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, along with a host of more alternative names including the Flaming Lips, They Might Be Giants and the Brooklyn-based experimentalists, Dirty Projectors.

Neil Young's annual Bridge School Benefit always has a stellar lineup, but in 1996 it was particularly strong with David Bowie, Pearl Jam, Pete Townshend, Patti Smith, Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Billy Idol, Bonnie Raitt and Cowboy Junkies all on the bill. Bowie had just wrapped up a tour in support of his industrial album Outside, but for the Bridge School he parred down his band to just bassist Gail Ann Dorsey and guitarist Reeves Gabrels. For percussion, Bowie taped a bottle cap to the bottom of his shoe and tapped his foot.

Last week, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel declared September 23 “David Bowie Day” in Chicago to mark the opening of the new exhibit “David Bowie Is” at the Museum of Contemporary Art, the exhibit’s only US stop. It's not every day that one has the opportunity to celebrate David Bowie Day—at least officially—so I had to check out the festivities and find out what exactly goes down on such an important occasion. Knowing Bowie’s propensity for the outlandish, the absurd, and the outright freakish, I expected things to get weird early. Would I witness the weird? Or would it just be another day in...

From '72 thru '74 Bowie's Ziggy Stardust character fascinated the rock music world by leading the Glam trend, and pioneered the ever-increasing importance of visual fashion elements to popular music.

So I was walking down the street in London one time and who do I run into but David Bowie. Give the man his privacy, I think, but in the end I can’t resist saying, “Mr. Bowie, I just want to tell you I’m a huge fan.” To which he replies, “I am a God. You are a repugnant toad and smell funny.” Then waving his hands about in the air for me to disappear, he says, “Shoo, shoo.”

Okay, so that never happened. But if it had happened I’d still be one of the biggest Bowie fans in the world....
