TYF Music Podcast: Episode 2 – Bowie and Beyond


2016 is only a few weeks old, but the year has already seen the deaths of several major figures in the music world, including Glenn Frey, Maurice White, Dale Griffin, Jon Bunch, Paul Kantner, Signe Anderson, Blowfly, Dan Hicks and Pierre Boulez. However, the death that has cast the biggest shadow on the music world over the past few weeks has been that of David Bowie on January 10. It is closing in on a month since the iconic singer’s passing, and tributes, remembrances and discussion of his music have continued.

In the second episode of the TYF Music Podcast, some of our music writers — Ryan Gibbs, Joey Daniewicz, Matt Rice, Kevin Montes and William Eguizabal — talked about Bowie’s life and legacy. Also, the group discussed the inductees to this year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, their most anticipated albums of 2016 and much more.
