Well of course most artists will be inspired by death. I wouldn't say it was the overiding factor of Bowie's work. Well, no more so than space, drugs, and other cultures.
BTW. I don't mean to sound like I'm nit-picking, but the comment on 1.Outside, I thought it said that Baby Grace's torso was impaled by the bottom most orifice (I think you can guess what I mean). But did I just misunderstand it?
