Video! Rock God David Bowie Tops UK Charts With New Album

By Robert Paul Reyes

"David Bowie returned to the top of the British album charts on Sunday for the first time in 20 years with a collection of new recordings acclaimed by one critic as the "greatest comeback in rock`n`roll history`.


`The Next Day`, recorded in secret over two years, shot straight to number one in its first week on release, shifting over 94,000 copies to become the fastest-selling album of 2013, the Official Charts Company said."


In a music industry dominated by boy bands the likes of One Direction, auto-tuned pop divas like Lady Gaga, and Illuminati inspired hip hop acts like Kanye West and Nicki Minaj, it`s a breath of fresh air for 66-year-old David Bowie to reclaim his throne as the King of British pop.

Music fans are so hungry for originality and talent that Bowie`s new album topped the digital iTunes charts in 40 countries days after its release on March 8, 2012.

Bowie can teach Lady Gaga a thing or two about shock and awe, he can school Nicki Minaj on the subject of alternate egos, and he can make Kanye`s head spin when it comes to making a fashion statement.

But Bowie is more than the sum of his parts; he is a timeless rock icon who will never go out of style.

Now this is what I call music! Rock on Bowie, rock on till you die!
