David Bowie, such heartbreaking news. Today, I found out that the remarkable legendary English singer has passed away of Cancer at the age of sixty-nine on January 10, 2016. The South London-born native fought a battle for eighteen months, however sadly fans read a statement which had been issued over social media saying, at the time of his death he was surrounded by his beloved family as he passed away peacefully. Truly this is such sad news to hear, fans must be crying today for losing their pop, rock and fashion idol, and remarkable musician. There are some tributes, here’s just a few:
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 directed Bafta-winning film Moon, wrote on Twitter: “Very sorry and sad to say it’s true. I’ll be offline for a while. Love to all.”
