    I'm really just miserable about this. He was just everything, he meant so much to so many. Damn, ChangesOneBowie got me through some teenage angst.

    He never did anything for me and still doesn't. Although he had a pleasant sounding voice I'm not a fan of most of his work. Also never understood the physical attraction to him. But I'm sad for his loved ones, his wife and teenaged daughter especially, and his fans. He did a great job of keeping his illness a private affair, and that alone should be admired in this day and age where some people seek attention on social media for everything about themselves they feel is of importance to share, farts included.

    In true fashion indeed, that's why I can't stop smiling.
    That s.o.b did it!! He battled cancer with barely anyone knowing then releases a record right before he passes. *mouth drops. IN TRUE BOWIE FASHION!!
    He was able to do his craft, and be with family to the end. In true bowie fashion. Amazing!
    I can't stop smiling. I'm sad yes, disheartened by the fact he may have suffered any pain but I am in awe.

    To the moonbeams Ziggy!! Whoohooo, you did it !!!! *applauses*




    My deepest and heartfelt sympathies to his family, friends and all that loved him, his fans.

    Rest In Peace Mr. Bowie...

    His work, his impact, his legacy are too great to put into words.
    I found this beautiful illustration that I thought was fitting to share...

    I'm stunned as well, how he kept this a secret for so long is unbelievable. I saw him in concert and stood through the entire thing dancing away with my brother. So versatile and I agree he was born way before his time and died much too soon. Loved loved his music.

    One of my favorite David Bowie songs is probably a little more obscure. It was the theme song from the remake of "Cat People" (Nastassja Kinski, Malcom McDowell), a really lurid, sensual film that I love. "Putting out the Fire" starts really slow and hypnotically, and then quickly builds to a crescendo. Tarantino also used it in the finale of "Inglourious Basterds".

    Such a shitty start to 2016, this hurts. I am happy for him that he kept his illness to himself so he could go in PEACE. I just realized today his birth name was David Jones. I knew immediately why he changed his last name....Davy Jones was the name of the lead singer of the Monkees. Last comment on this, I share the same name he gave his son and I was always thought it was cool he spelled to to match his Dad's last name - Bowie. Friends used to call me Zowie Bowie as a nickname growing up. I think his son no longer goes by Zowie since I think he is in the entertainment business.

    This really hurts. He made me feel that it was ok not to be normal. To be who you are. To love who you are. This man, so elegant and so untouchable, but yet, we all felt like we were his friend. Back to the stars you go. Thank you for coming to visit us even though it wasn't long enough.

    What a loss. He was so beautiful in so many ways and his body of work will rock forever. So many good songs, love me some panic in detroit.

    From the glammed-out androgyny of Ziggy Stardust to his big 80s anthem, “Let’s Dance,” to his current “jungle-influenced” sound, David Bowie has proved to be rock’s indestructible chameleon. This month, the Thin White Duke prepares to release a new album and demonstrates here that, even though he is 51, his taste for oddities remains the same.

    Blue Jean came out when i was in my teens, and i LOVED the line "she's got a turned up nose".. because i had a turned up nose and was teased like mad about it..

    So the fact David made it sound so sweet, gave me a life long soft spot for him.. He seems like such a sweet, laid back cool dude.
