David Bowie’s Legacy: ‘He Has the Power to Change Lives’

Thurston Moore, Daphne Guinness and more on the pop star’s lasting influence

David Bowie’s considerable legacy is on display now as part of the new exhibit “David Bowie Is” at the Victoria & Albert Museum of Art and Design in London. Now you can get a taste of what the exhibit has to offer with this short film titled David Bowie Is: Blowing Our Minds, which features Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore, music writer Simon Price and the artists Jeremy Deller and Daphne Guinness talking about the trajectory of Bowie’s ever-evolving style, his collaborative genius and his incredible influence on musicians, artists and pop culture as a whole.

Moore recalls being enthralled by the urban landscape on the cover of The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust, while Price says that Bowie transcends pop music: “I think perhaps unlike any other pop artist, David Bowie has the power to change lives,” Price says. “He has to be one of the most influential artists of all time, without a doubt.”
