    One of my favorite musicians of all time died this morning at the age of 69 years old. He was fighting against cancer for 18 months.

    RIP Bowie.

    And in typical Bowie fashion, he's made art out of his passing. The videos from his brand new album are worth a look. :/

    If you haven't seen it already, I would highly recommend watching Moon, his directorial debut. Very creative filmmaking on a limited budget.

    I was genuinely completely and utterly distraught by this.

    He was by far and away my favourite musician, inspiration and, to use a familiar word, Hero.

    Same here. Caught me by surprise how affected I was by his passing. So much creativity and fantasy in one rock musician.
    Or as Hari Kunzru put it in a piece written for 'The Guardian':

    "Bowie taught me that when they demanded your identity papers, you didn’t have to comply."
