David Bowie – Ziggy Stardust – Bond Entrepreneur

bowieGround Control To Major Tom – – – – – – Commencing Countdown Engines On……  Some of you are too young to really know David Bowie but I’ve been around a while.  He was an awesome artist and brave as hell.  Did you know Bowie was the first recording artist to go to Wall Street to tap the future earnings of his music?  He ended up selling $55 million of bonds in 1997 that were tied to future royalties from hits including “Ziggy Stardust,” “Space Oddity” and “Changes.”

I’ve been listening to his songs again yesterday and this morning.  Back in November, 2013 I posted Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield’s version of Space Oddity. The video has been viewed nearly 30,000,000 times.  Check it out…click the graphic above.  RIP Ziggy Stardust.
