The album "Aladdin Sane" was released in 1973 by David Bowie. The title of the album is a pun on "A Lad Insane". The artwork on the cover features a vibrant lightning bolt across red-head Bowie's face which represents the split personality of the Aladdin Sane character and Bowie's mixed feelings about the tour and stardom. It is still to this day regarded as one of his most iconic images.
David Bowie is a leading figure in the music industry and is one of the most influential musicians of all time. He is known for his extravagant gender-bending costumes and popular alter egos, like Ziggy Stardust, Halloween Jack, and Major Tom. He was questioned a lot for his more feminine personas and costumes, which pushed him to come out as bisexual. He was the first bisexual artist in history to openly come out publically. Bowie also did acting on the side and is most famous for his role as the Goblin King in the movie Labyrinth. He stayed relevant as he continued to make music and toured for over 40 years. His last record, Blackstar, was released in 2016 two days before he lost his battle with cancer and passed away. His memory, music, and personas will live on forever.
