“When one alter ego closes, another one opens.”

Few rock stars embodied this self-manufactured offshoot idiom better than David Bowie. Simply put, no one reinvented themselves more adeptly or successfully than he did. And this month 45 years ago he said goodbye to his first major alias, Ziggy Stardust.

Up next? The Plastic Soul era!

As for my favorite Bowie era, I loved the “Thin White Duke” the best with his trilogy of “Berlin” albums as my favorite catalog of Bowie tunes.

How about you? Which “Bowie era” was your favorite?
