The saddest of news to wake up to this morning. David Bowie has sadly passed away at the age of 69, following an 18 month battle with cancer.
One of the few musicians that could legitimately be called a legend, Bowie’s death was announced via his Facebook page with a short statement.
“David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer,” it read. “While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief.”
An artist that transcended boundaries of genre, David Bowie released his final album ‘Blackstar’ on his 69th birthday, last Friday.
