After the “Death” of Ziggy Stardust, Bowie claimed that his next album would be “Ziggy goes to America.” With this in mind, Aladdin Sane was created. Aladdin Sane was one of David Bowie's most popular alter-egos from the album "Aladdin Sane" or as Bowie says "A Lad Insane". They wrote most of the songs on tour in the US between shows. Because of this, many of the tracks are greatly influenced by America and Bowie's perceptions of the country.
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.
