Bowie’s Worth

The thing about artists that makes their actual worth so hard to quantify, particularly artists like Bowie who made being an outsider into a virtue, is that it’s impossible to say exactly how many actual human lives they literally saved. Like, people who would have died without them. I think the number, unknown forever, would astound people, and raise certain artists into a rank usually occupied by humanitarians.
