BEING A TEACHER....

BEING A TEACHER IS A DIFFICULT TASK NOWADAYS, SO I DECIDED TO FOLLOW THIS PIECE OF ADVICE BY BRUCE LEE:

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

  1. David Robert Jones was born on 8th of January in 1947 and died on 10th of January in 2016, because he had cancer. His nickname was David Bowie. He was an English singer, songwriter, record producer, painter and actor. Apart of being singer, he played some instrument like the guitar, the saxophone and the keyboards. He was considered by critics and other musician as an innovator. He made hard rock, heavy metal, soul, psychedelic folk and pop music.

    He made a lot of good studio albums such as ‘Heroes’ or ‘Never let me down’. He also made very good songs like ‘Let’s dance’ and ‘Heroes’.

    I have never heard him before his dead, but I like his songs and I will listen a lot of times his songs. It is a pity that I have known him when he has died, but there a lot of famous people who had gone through it.

    I hope in the future there are more people like him.

  2. David Bowie has been one of the greatest character in the rock's history. He was an performer and composer, but he was also the key piece to relaunch essential names in rock, such as Lou Reed and Iggy Pop and the Stooges.

    David was born in January in Brixton (England) and he died the past 10 January. His first musical taste was jazz, he also studied saxophone when he was younger. He was a member of many groups in the first half of the 60s, like The Konrads, The Hooker Brothers, The King Bees, The Manish Boys and The Lower Third.

    He changed his surname bacause there was another actor and singer called David Jones. He changed from Jones to Bowie. He debuted with “Can’t help thinking about me”. He had a lot of musical styles. His explosion like a musical superstar was in 1972. Bowie went down in history as the artist identified with the genre.

    His only son is Zowie Bowie. His birth inspired his father to write the song "Kook" included on his album Hunky Dory. He followed a bit his mother's way. She was a model, an actress and a musician. He is a British film director and he has won BAFTA award once.

    I don't like much his music, but that is because I like other types of music. I reckon he is an important person to the history and he has some great songs.

  3. David Bowie, the legendary rock star, esthetic and artistic icon of the late twentieth century, has died at age 69, victim of cancer. So it was announced, to 7:30 am on January 10, in the official artist profiles on Facebook and Twitter. "David Bowie has died peacefully today [on Sunday] surrounded by his family, after a courageous 18-month fight against cancer.

    Like Major Tom in his immortal song-proteins he took their pills, put on his helmet and rose. Nobody could see the signs. A dead astronaut Stars video starting Blackstar, the title track to his latest album, released last Friday, coinciding with his 69th birthday. No photos of the artist on the cover of an album that hasn't been posthumously for two days. Only a black star, now revealed as the man who sang farewell to the Spiders from Mars.

    This singer is considered one of the most important icons of the music of the 80s, he revolutionizes unapologetic new style of music that began in those years.

    Many fans are developing tributes everywhere and here in Spain was one in Barcelona last night.

    Rest in peace.

  4. David Bowie was known as Chameleon, because he demonstrated his great aptitude to be reinvented and to adapt very suitable to all the new trends along which he was passing. David Bowie was born in Brixton, London. He was a singer, composer, producer and musician of many instruments.

    When he was young, in one fight of students, he received a wound with a compass in the left eye and it produced a paralysis to him in the muscles of the pupil. As a consequence of it, he suffered a heterochromia iridium and the blue colour of his eye was passing to green. It has been his personal mark with which always he has been identified.
    In 1969 he had his first great success with the song Space Oddity which narrated the history of an astronaut lost in the space called Major Tom. Since then he has been very famous and he is considered a legendary rock star.

    David Bowie died peacefully on 10th January surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer. When he died, he was 69 years old, his birthday was on 8th January, two days before he died.

  8. David Robert Jones known as David Bowie was an English singer, songwriter and actor. The people called him Chamaleon because he demonstrated his great aptitude to be reinvented and to adapt very suitable to all the new trends along which he was passing. He born in Brixton, south London, and since he was little he´s an interest in music and the others arts. His mother, Margaret Mary was born in Kent and she worked as a waitress and his father, Haywoood Stenton from Yorkshire, was a promotions officer for the children's charity Barnardo's.
    In 1962 Bowie formed his first band at the age of 15, the Konrads. Bowie left the Konrads and joined another band, the King Bees. Dissatisfied with the King Bees, Bowie quit the band less than a month later to join the Manish Boys ans so several time until he got fame.
    On 10 January 2016, two days after his 69th birthday and the release of the album Blackstar, Bowie died from liver cancer in his New York City apartment. He had been diagnosed 18 months earlier but had not made the news of his illness public.
    Personally I´ve heard some songs of him and although they are of the music that I like, they don´t finish convincing me.
