David Bowie, the American rock legend, has always been a bit of a recluse.
He has been absent from the public eye since his death in 2011 at age 75.
But last month, Bowie, who is often credited as the architect of the modern music scene, finally returned to the limelight when he appeared on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”
The show, hosted by Jimmy Fallon, featured a rare live performance of Bowie’s iconic 1969 “Blackstar” album.
During the show, Bowie played a song that he wrote with the singer, Queen guitarist Freddie Mercury and drummer Keith Richards.
It was the first time Bowie had ever performed on the show.
The song, “Black Star,” became a worldwide anthem for the Black Liberation Movement, and it was an early sign of how much Bowie loved his pet dog.
When the song came on, Bowie and his entourage, including Mercury, took a photo together.
Bowie’s wife, Marina, and his mother, Vivienne, were also in the picture.
Mercury and Richards, as well as the band’s lead singer, Prince, were in the audience.
During the show’s conclusion, Bowie took the microphone and spoke about his dog, which he said had always been there for him, “When I was dying, my dog kept asking for me.
It’s like, ‘What is it you want?
Is it a new baby?
I know you don’t want one, but you don´t know what it means.
And she never said no.'”
The dog, called Mockingbird, has been with Bowie since the late ’60s and has never left him.
The singer is said to have had MockingBird when he was in his late 30s.
Bowie, whose death was announced on Thursday, was diagnosed with cancer in March 2017.
His cause of death has not been released.
