Dead Guitarists I Admire, Part IV

David Bowie worked with many guitarists I admire--Robert Fripp, Adrian Belew, and SRV among them. None complemented Bowie's songwriting so well as Mick Ronson. I'm amazed by albums like Ziggy Stardust and The Man Who Sold the World. They still sound ground-breaking, and the guitar has a lot to do with it. Ronson suffered liver failure at age 46, and now he's dead.
