David Bowie passes at age 69
Janill Gilbert stashed this in Passed
David Bowie has died after a battle with cancer, his rep confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter. He was 69.
"David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer. While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief," read a statement posted on the artist's official social media accounts.
I hadn't seen that version of Fame live. Wow!!
Blackstar, the title song of his final album released on his birthday January 8th, 2 days before his death. It's full of symbolism, and it's interesting to interpret knowing that he knew it was his last, and his life was coming to a close, his last gift to us.
So he was working until he died?! Amazing!
Definitely looks like a nod to C.S. Lewis' wardrobe.
Rebel Rebel! Thanks for reminding me, Reddit!
Reddit is good at reminders. :)

Saddened to hear David Bowie has lost his battle with cancer – his music was an inspiration to many. @DavidBowieReal
Thanks for that tweet. Was Fame your favorite song? Or was it Space Odyssey?
I love both of those, but I also love to put on my red shoes and dance the blues. ;)
Let's Dance!! :)
