Good-bye, Goblin King

Published January 11, 2016 by lynn k scott

As I set out for this morning’s commute, I perused Facebook just one more time while the car was heating up.  My friend had posted a meme…

RIP DB

Wait!  What?!?  Headed to Google to verify.  Sure enough, David Bowie passed late in the evening, on January 10, 2016.

I was a teenager in the 80s and that included listening to David Bowie’s music.  “Modern Love” was by far my favorite of his songs.  Of course, who could forget Bowie starring as Jareth, the Goblin King, in the 1986 movie, “Labyrinth”? While I’m not really a fan of fantasy movies (or books), this one had me hook, line and sinker.

Needless to say, music has lost another great performer.  I’ve reached the stage in my life, where I can appreciate when my mother used to be heartbroken over actors and performers passing.  As a kid you don’t quite understand this.  It’s hard to ignore one’s own mortality when your idols fall to human ailments and/or old age.  Sadly, cancer has won another battle.

Rest In Peace, Goblin King.  You will surely be missed!

  • I still to this day have a love for Bowie and his music and the “Labyrinth” was my first introduction to him and his music, I was crying last night when I saw it on Twitter, and just like you I was Googling it to verify and I must admit I was hoping it was another one of those cruel hoaxes, Sadly, it was not. if you get a chance you should watch and listen to “Lazarus”. Hugs to another fan.
