DAVID BOWIE HAS DIED

The singer-songwriter and producer dabbled in glam rock, art rock, soul, hard rock, dance pop, punk and electronica during his eclectic 40-plus-year career.

David Bowie has died after a battle with cancer, his rep confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter. He was 69.

"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," read a statement posted on the artist's official social media accounts.

The influential singer-songwriter and producer dabbled in glam rock, art rock, soul, hard rock, dance pop, punk and electronica during his eclectic 40-plus-year career. He just released his 25th album, Blackstar, Jan. 8, which was his birthday.

Bowie’s artistic breakthrough came with 1972’s The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars, an album that fostered the notion of rock star as space alien. Fusing British mod with Japanese kabuki styles and rock with theater, Bowie created the flamboyant, androgynous alter ego Ziggy Stardust.

Three years later, Bowie achieved his first major American crossover success with the No. 1 single “Fame” off the top 10 album Young Americans, then followed with the 1976 avant-garde art rock LP Station to Station, which made it to No. 3 on the charts and featured top 10 hit “Golden Years.”

Other memorable songs included 1983’s “Let’s Dance” — his only other No. 1 U.S. hit — “Space Oddity,” “Heroes,” “Changes,” “Under Pressure,” “China Girl,” “Modern Love,” “Rebel, Rebel,” “All the Young Dudes,” “Panic in Detroit,” “Fashion,” “Life on Mars,” “Suffragette City” and a 1977 Christmas medley with Bing Crosby.  
One of my most favourite singers, I am so sad.   His 69th birthday was 3 days ago, on 8th January. RIP David.  Lamplighter Sad

Oh, that is absolutely terrible news, LL. I didn't even know he was ill. And so soon after Lemmy, too. Crying or Very sad

25 years since Freddie Mercury died. I love this song - this is a Queen remix, I think from the memorial concert a few years ago.   LL

He released his last album just a few days ago...

'Look up here, I'm in heaven': David Bowie's haunting lyrics to his last song Lazarus appear to be a farewell from a man who knew he was dying
Singer released video for final song Lazarus just three days before death
It shows him trapped in a hospital bed, with bandages covering his eyes
Cryptic lyrics are posthumously poignant, as he sings: 'Oh I'll be free'
Producer Tony Visconti said his Bowie had made his death 'a work of art'

I don't think anyone outside his immediate family had any idea he was so ill, LL. A sad, sad day.

In public life he was flamboyant, but his private life was not for public consumption. I met him three times, the first when he was unknown and in a band at the Marquee, in London, the second in Berlin in the 70s when he was living there and the third on the Glass Spider Tour. I see his ex-wife, the ghastly Angie Bowie has been slanging him off on the Celeb Big Brother program, making loads of claims like she was his manager etc. He never spoke to her after the divorce and their son Zowie - he lost that name as soon as he could - and is now Duncan Jones. David and Iman have a daughter. LL

I gather from reading round, that the Mail hard copy printed that hag Angie's latest attack on him just hours before his death was announced - definitely bad timing!

I never could stand that talentless harpy - she's ridden on David's coattails for decades.

I didn't even realise that he and Imam had a child, LL, I liked the way he kept his private life just that - private. Imam is stunning, and everything the hag Angie isn't.

Alexandria Zahra Jones, born 2000.   She is beautiful.   LL



Bowie and his son by Angie, he is 44 years old



Interresting that Bowie was granted sole custody of his son due to Angie's lifestyle. I was told she only married David to get British residency status, she is in fact American. LL

It's actually very funny, in a sort of Monty Python way.

An awesome talent, Pedro, and a sad loss, for David's family, and the wider world.

The first time I heard Space Oddity I stopped in my tracks. Amazing and remains so today.

My best friend's ex-husband worked on some of his earlier albums.

How can you sufficiently describe someone who is beyond talented? That was him.

God Bless David Jones. xxxx

"I'll never forget that. It was one of the most emotional performances I've ever done. I was in tears. They'd backed up the stage to the wall itself so that the wall was acting as our backdrop. We kind of heard that a few of the East Berliners might actually get the chance to hear the thing, but we didn't realize in what numbers they would. And there were thousands on the other side that had come close to the wall. So it was like a double concert where the wall was the division. And we would hear them cheering and singing along from the other side. God, even now I get choked up. It was breaking my heart. I'd never done anything like that in my life, and I guess I never will again.

"When we did 'Heroes' it really felt anthemic, almost like a prayer. However well we do it these days, it's almost like walking through it compared to that night, because it meant so much more. That's the town where it was written, and that's the particular situation that it was written about. It was just extraordinary.

"We did it in Berlin last year as well – 'Heroes' – and there's no other city I can do that song in now that comes close to how it's received. This time, what was so fantastic is that the audience – it was the Max Schmeling Hall, which holds about 10-15,000 – half the audience had been in East Berlin that time way before. So now I was face-to-face with the people I had been singing it to all those years ago. And we were all singing it together. Again, it was powerful. Things like that really give you a sense of what performance can do. They happen so rarely at that kind of magnitude. Most nights I find very enjoyable. These days, I really enjoy performing. But something like that doesn't come along very often, and when it does, you kind of think, 'Well, if I never do anything again, it won't matter.'"

i was at London’s Hammersmith Odeon Theatre when Bowie 'killed off' Ziggy. I was, like everyone else, totally gutted. LL
