Music fans around the world mourned en masse when the one and only David Bowie passed away in January 2016. The musical legend was a powerhouse, a chameleon who mastered many looks and musical styles in his sadly short lifetime, also gaining acclaim for his role in the film Labyrinth. His music, including hits like “Let’s Dance,” “Heroes,” “Space Oddity,” “Modern Love,” and “Rebel Rebel,” will live forever among new generations who discover his genius and creativity. His alter ego Ziggy Stardust was a way for him to channel another side of himself, one that indeed spoke to all the misfits, queers and, yes, fellow rebels. After all, who but Bowie could come up with an alien rock star concept album that was both utterly weird and perfectly fitting?
Also known as The Thin White Duke, Bowie continued to innovate throughout his lifetime, including his 25th and final studio album Blackstar, pushing himself into new realms and creating songs that spoke to fans on a deep level. Wearing a David Bowie t-shirt isn’t the same as wearing any old band tee; it’s a symbol of something deeper, more abiding, a lasting kind of musical fandom that will continue into infinity. Bowie is the ultimate Starman and these Spencer’s music tees keep his legacy alive and celebrate him at various incarnations of his very public and very versatile career.
