Billy Corgan, Trent Reznor And Yungblud Cover David Bowie During Livestream


David Bowie would have turned 74 on January 8, 2021, and to celebrate, the Thin White Duke's longtime collaborator Mike Garson curated a star-studded livestream tribute concert. A Bowie Celebration: Just For One Day! was supposed to go down on the same day; however, technical difficulties caused it to be postponed until last night (January 9).

Highlights from the event included Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan singing "Space Oddity," Trent Reznor, along with his wife Mariqueen Maandig and Nine Inch Nails bandmate Atticus Ross, covering “Fantastic Voyage” and “Fashion,” and YUNGBLUD taking on "Life On Mars."

"it’s rare in this life that you meet someone who shaped your whole fookin existence," YUNGBLUD wrote in an Instagram post. "i felt like i met him last night. i felt like i was on a different planet. he was there and i was with him. it was truly the greatest moment of my fookin life getting to sing 'life on mars' with rock n roll legends and past members of bowie’s band at a concert in his memory. thank you for everything starman."

Slipknot‘s Corey Taylor, Foo FightersTaylor Hawkins, The Pretty RecklessTaylor Momsen, Jane's Addiction's Perry Farrell, Bush's Gavin Rossdale, Macy Gray, Def Leppard's Joe Elliott, The Rolling Stones' Bernard Fowler, Halestorm's Lzzy Hale, Adam Lambert, and more also put their spin on some of Bowie's most beloved songs.

All performances were accompanied by Garson on piano. Watch Corgan, Reznor, and YUNGBLUD's covers and see the full set list below.
