Is there Life on Mars?

Yesterday marked the 70th birthday of icon David Bowie, who passed away January 2016. He was famous for being a genius in the world of music, fashion and being ahead of his time. Bowie recorded at Trident Studios in Soho, London, which became the birth place of the classic ‘Life On Mars?’. The song was one of is one Bowie’s most remarkable hits, prompting some to describe it as Bowie’s own ‘My Way’ by Frank Sinatra.

Not known to many, Trident Studios was set up by Trackd CEO Russell Sheffield’s late father Norman Sheffield and uncle in 1967, and was the first studio to have an 8-Track recording desk. Other artists to record at Trident include Queen, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Elton John.
