R.I.P. David Bowie


From BBC News:

Singer David Bowie, one of the most influential musicians of his era, has died of cancer at the age of 69.

A statement was issued on his social media accounts, saying he “died peacefully, surrounded by his family” after an “18-month battle with cancer”.

Tributes have been paid from around the world to the “extraordinary artist” whose last album was released days ago.

Sir Paul McCartney described him as a “great star” who “played a very strong part in British musical history”.

Bowie’s son Duncan Jones, who is a Bafta-winning film director, wrote on Twitter: “Very sorry and sad to say it’s true. I’ll be offline for a while. Love to all.”

  1. Wow..we was just expressing our condolences to Natalie Cole last week. I remembered reading that David Bowie was diagnosed with cancer last year,but I was under the impression that maybe he was doing pretty ok. When I heard that he died .I’m like ” Wait a minute..did they say David Bowie?” I couldn’t believe it.

    I loved David Bowie because he made eccentric to be cool. I loved listening to ” Let’s Dance” and ” This is not America”( Ironic because right now..this is really NOT America). I remembered some of the school used some of his music to play in their bands and they sound good when they did.

    I looked at some of his new stuff and I admit ,it looked weird but in spite of his short time of life, I’m glad that he got his music out.

    My condolences to Iman and her family. God bless them.
