It's almost like I forgot he was a mortal.

The man's gone. The music lives on.

I know. That makes it all the more shocking, especially given that he died from cancer that he'd been battling for 18 months.

Wow. :(

It was just his birthday, too.

I'm the same; I'm very unsettled and upset, moreso than with the death of other admired public figures in recent memory.

Mandela, Iyengar, Robyn Williams...I was saddened and honoured them, but David Bowie's death rocked me.

The Blackstar album is incredible. A requiem he wrote for himself, it seems.


Street party in Brixton (where he was born), in memoriam. :love:

This is probably pretty widely known, but for those who haven't seen it: David Bowie/Bing Crosby Little Drummer Boy
