While Ziggy Stardust will live forever, today the news is filled with reports that Stardusts alter ego, David Bowie (Jones) died yesterday, Sunday, January 10th 2016. He no longer has five years.
Bowie was only two days into his 69th year.
Bowie’s son Duncan confirmed the news on Twitter. A simple tweet; “Very sorry and sad to say it’s true.” This was paired with news from Bowies publicity team that he had been ill with cancer for at least 18 months. And while there had been much recent speculation surrounding the health of Bowie, the news came as a great shock to most everyone, but close family.
David Bowie Official on Facebook stated just this; “January 10 2016 – 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.”
Bowies eclectic career as an Artist spanned five decades. Take your time.
David Bowie 1947-2016 Rest In Peace
