David Bowie died at the age of 69. A legendary singer, also called an ‘innovator’ by the critics, had been an influence for many people. From Madonna to Lorde, everyone paid tribute to the legend by sharing their moments with him. Recently, Fred Armisen paid homage to David Bowie on Saturday Night Live. Armisen shared a small clip of a performance by David Bowie on Saturday Night Live that he saw when he was a kid.
“When I was in high school and living in Long Island, I stayed up to see David Bowie play on Saturday Night Live. Watching him was, for me, a life-changing experience,” said Armisen. “He had these backup singers that were, like, choir singers from the future, and a toy poodle with a TV monitor in his mouth. David Bowie transformed whatever space he was in, whatever medium he was using, and that night, for me, he transformed live television.”
The clip was from Bowie’s 1979 performance of “The Man Who Sold The World” on Saturday Night Live. He asked viewers to visit NBC.com to view all Bowie’s performances. Watch David Bowie’s memorable performances here.
