Remembering David Bowie and Alan Rickman

The world lost two great British artists this week, David Bowie and Alan Rickman. Bowie was known for constantly re-inventing his image and music style, forever changing modern rock and roll. Alan Rickman was a classically-trained actor and director, but many know him for bringing Severus Snape to life in the Harry Potter movie series.

To learn more about David Bowie, you can read a book about him, see a movie he was in, and of course don't forget to listen to his music.

To see more of Alan Rickman's work, check out a DVD.
