David Bowie dies of cancer, aged 69

The world of rock ‘n roll are in mourning yet again as it has been announced that pop and rock pioneer David Bowie has passed away after a battle with cancer for 18 months.

Bowie, born David Robert Jones, had just turned 69 and released his final album ‘Blackstar’ three days before his death. He “died peacefully surrounded by his family” according to a startement released on his social media accounts.

As expected, the world of rock and metal have came out in their droves to pay tribute:

“Every song of his was a way for me to communicate to others. It was a sedative. An arousal. A love letter I could never have written. “ Marilyn Manson, via Rolling Stone

“He’s been a massive part of my life since I first heard Starman in 1972…Rest in Peace David Bowie and thank you for giving us believers something to believe in” Joe Elliot of Def Leppard via Facebook

Below is his video for ‘Blackstar’ which is featured on the album of the same name:
