David Bowie dead at 69

I was just getting ready to go to bed and caught the news on CNN. He died after an 18 month fight with cancer.
We've lost one of the biggest music icons of the last 50 years.
He did get to see the release of his last album this past week on his birthday.

Just saw the terrible news.  I did not know that he was sick.  He was a musical genius, a genre bender.   I love the music he created with Iggy Pop...Lust for Life. 

Saw him on Serious Moonlight Tour and later at a festival. 

This is a fucking tragedy.  RIP David Bowie.  Thank you for the music.  I'm just shocked and lost.

So sad to hear of David Bowie's death. He was one of my all time heroes. Have followed his career & collected his music since the early 70's. He has inspired so many people & music artists throughout the years. A Starman in the sky forever xxx

Oh, damn, I didn't know he was sick either. I'm so sorry for him and his family that he went down like that. RIP, man.

And to find out on a Monday morning. Tragic.

Probably the biggest shocker for me since George died. Him & Lou Reed.

From the CNN obit:

"As the world mourns Bowie's death, fan Dean Podsta put it best:

"If you're sad today, just remember the world is over 4 billion years old and you somehow managed to exist at the same time as David Bowie."

Not the greatest news to wake up to.
I just watched Velvet Goldmine the other night...out of the blue (as ziggy would say).
One of my biggest thrills was to see him on Broadway as the Elephant Man, way back when...

My Glimmer Twins grew up on his video anthology...they still know all the songs...

The rumors of his  self-imposed exile must have been tied to his illness.

Every song stage should go dark today

RIP Mr Jones

I heard the news right before going to bed last night.  Hubby and I talked about it for over an hour.  Seems he and the family kept the illness quiet on purpose.

Thanks for leaving us a terrific birthday gift.

I had heard rumors that he's been sick for a while. That's one of the reasons he wasn't touring. But he kept busy with two very interesting albums. This was eerie, happening right after he released his new album. He went out as creative as he ever was. A true rock God. Musical genius and one of the great talents of our time.

"Put on your red shoes and dance the blues..."

My favorite Bowie is Young Americans, Station to Station, Heroes, Let's Dance and the stuff he did with Iggy--Lust For Life and Idiot. 

I really want to listen to China Girl now.  What a huge fucking loss...he was a modern time musical genius.

Condolences to his legendary beautiful wife Iman, his children and his family.

never saw him in concert…

I had heard about the heart attack 4/5 years ago, but this came as a shock.

He really loved his fans a lot to keep this private and still put out recordings…

He was everything an artist should be and he lived it until the end…

it really hasn't sunk in for me. I haven't cried…

My Facebook feed was literally all bowie and maybe 4 other things this AM, and it was same with Lemmy last week.

I wish I had something deep and profound to say… I found ChangesOne Bowie digging through my Dads records in 79/80… I'm so glad I dug through my old mans records.

CNNI is reporting that his producer said Bowie intentionally released the album to coincide with his death as a farewell to his fans.

Now I'm really sad.
