Heroes live is my favourite track of his and my favourite memory is when he came on at Roker Park and said "Good Evening Newcastle." :lol: We've lost another proper legend.
"Hello, Bobby," he once greeted his England captain, Bryan Robson.

"I'm Bryan," the skipper replied. "You're Bobby."

RIP.

Will never forget him singing the "Chubby Little Loser" song at Ricky Gervais on Extras. :lol:

The Flight of the Conchords episode as well. :smitten:

Didn't realise his last movie role was The Prestige. Absolutely loved him in it and it couldn't have been cast better. RIP.

Oh yeah, Tesla. :lol:

Genuinely feel a bit sick, don't want to go to work but stay home and listen to his early day albums. :bong:
Making mistakes is how you learn.
Every generation must fight the same battles again and again and again. There is no final victory, and there is no final defeat, and so a little bit of history may help.
“What power have you got? Where did you get it from? In whose interests do you exercise it? To whom are you accountable? And how can we get rid of you?” If you cannot get rid of the people who govern you, you do not live in a democratic system.
That is why no one with power likes democracy and that is why every generation must struggle to win it and keep it – including you and me, here and now.

I know he was private and a bit of a recluse, but to be as big a name as he is and keep a cancer diagnosis secret for 18 months is amazing in this day and age.

RIP to an absolute one off.


Was just saying the same. Staggering really.

He has been ill for 18 months, I had absolutely no idea...

This is devastating news, musical icon of my generation and an absolute legend!

RIP.

Man, :( was his cancer diagnosis secret? I feel like a bad fan, I had no idea. I feel like maybe the news passed me by.

My Mam absolutely loved him.  So I kind of grew up hearing a lot of his music. 

Not a huge fan of his or anything.  But I do like a lot of his songs and have a fair few of his tracks.  His sound is instantly recognisable and unlike a lot of stuff I heard as a kid, I could almost always pick out a Bowie song.  Even if I wasn't familiar with it.

Pretty unoriginal, but I think Heroes and Space Oddity are my favourites. 

RIP to a true great.

One of my most listened to artists. He's near enough the same age as my Dad too. Anyone whose ever tried to play his sheet music can see what a great innovator the world has lost. A lousy start to the week.

That's two of the most influential rock musicians of all time gone in the last couple of weeks.  They're all getting to the age where this is just going to keep happening.  :(

Amazing that he released a new album on Friday. The timing is eerie. Will be having a listen. My Dad was a huge fan and has a ton of vinyls, must make a point of digging them out and giving them a play.
I am currently happy. Its weekend. Time to unwind after a stressful work days.

This came out of nowhere, seemed like he was just starting a comeback of sorts too. Like MJ all over again. This sucks.

RIP.  Legend is a term that is thrown around like confetti these days but Bowie is a true legend.
