Subscribe to WWMJ Ellsworth Maine on

There’s no doubt that David Bowie was one of the more influential artists in the history of rock, and while he may not have delivered much that would be considered hard rock or heavy metal, his imprint on some of the artists that deliver that style of music is one that has been a lasting one. Earlier this week, artists from a variety of genres came together in Los Angeles to celebrate Bowie’s music over two nights at the Wiltern Theatre, with Corey Taylor, Def Leppard‘s Joe Elliott, Bush‘s Gavin Rossdale and Fishbone‘s Angelo Moore among those taking the stage.

Taylor earned raves for his cover of Bowie’s “China Girl,” with his low voice seeming to be a perfect fit for the song. The Slipknot and Stone Sour vocalist came out wearing a black hat, suit coat and a David Bowie t-shirt as he commanded the stage with his performance, which can be seen in the fan-shot footage above.

During his performance of “Suffragette City,” Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott recalled the track being one of the first songs that his band ever performed. For Rossdale’s performance, he spoke to the crowd about wanting not to be afraid of the president, before leading into Bowie’s latter years favorite “I’m Afraid of Americans.” Meanwhile, the animated Angelo Moore in a black top hat, cape and facial mask bounded about the stage for a gleeful performance of “Ashes to Ashes.” Watch fan-shot footage of those performances below.

In addition to the aforementioned artists, Sting, Perry Farrell, Gabby Moreno and a number of Bowie’s longtime bandmates played during the two-night stand in Los Angeles. Bowie passed away Jan. 10, 2016, just days after his 69th birthday.
