Certainly in the world of modern rock, David Bowie changed hearts and minds as often as he changed personas.  His final album, Blackstar, released on his 69th birthday.  Most of the world had no idea Bowie recorded the album at all prior to its release.

Bowie crafted his persona until the end.  Blackstar hides visual messages, too.  Hold the foldout up to the light to find one.  Have you tried using a black light on it yet?

Bowie died two days after the epic release.  I only hope he was well enough to see his hype machine take over the world for those two days. –Sloane
