The sad news of David Bowie’s passing reached us this morning. The amount of tributes on Instagram and other social media platforms show how important the man and his music were to the skateboarding world.
It seems also that skateboarding too was of some interest to Bowie. In his interview with North Skate Mag, Oliver Barton tells an anecdote of a phone call with a music-clearing agency:
“I noticed Wieger (van Wageningen) skated to David Bowie in the Nike video. Was that really expensive?” “Oh no, Bowie is easy. I can clear Bowie all day for next to nothing, he’s into it!”
His music has featured in many videos, so to pay tribute to the great man we have compiled ten of our favourite Bowie scored sections from over the years.
