Lazarus was David Robert Jones’ last video, made just before he left this earth on January 10, 2016. You probably knew him as David Bowie, a Baby Boomer rock star. He entered the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996. You might remember these hit songs from 1983: Lets’s Dance, Modern Love and my favorite, China Girl. That was a good year for him.
David Bowie’s last hit was Lazarus, recorded in 2016 just before his death. The YouTube video of Lazarus has been watched over 43 million times. That number is still rising. Lazarus is a dark and poignant statement from a man who knows his time is up.
