The world is in mourning today as news of David Bowie’s passing broke late last night.
Aged 69, the man, the artist, the legend, lost his battle with cancer.
The trailblazing artist was a man of many layers. Never one to follow the path laid out by others, Bowie consistently and unapologetically presented a different facet of himself and his artistry – and so the world followed.
The influential artist had a celebrated career spanning six decades.
It’s hard to imagine a world where Bowie is not present, but as we mourn his passing, we can all be reminded how lucky we were to have lived in his time.
David Bowie (David Robert Jones), singer, songwriter and actor, born 8 January 1947; died 10 January 2016
