I was just getting ready to shut my computer down tonight when the sad news that David Bowie had died was posted on his Facebook page. He passed away on January 10 (Sunday) after a courageous 18-month battle with cancer.
“David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer. While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief.” David Bowie Facebook page statement.
This took me by surprise as he had just released a new album about a week ago. My first memory of him was his role in Labyrinth then I fell in love with everything he did.
Rest in peace.
