Wow, that was . . . unexpected. I was never a huge fan, but he’s a legend. I like his work with Stevie Ray Vaughn.

Not a fan...but wow.

Hopefully, for his sake, he made peace with God.

God put him on my heart a few days ago and I wondered what had happened to him

As I understand it ... he marketed himself very well for a few youthful years and parlayed his earnings into a self sufficient wealth

I read somewhere he was a staunch conservative

An interesting study from the 1970's pop era

18 month battle? First I heard he must have kept it secret. All the recent news has been about how well he had been doing.

RIP David. I really enjoyed you in the 1983 movie “Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence.” Very moving performance.

Read just earlier this week it was his birthday, now this? He certainly made his mark in the music world and pop culture. R.I.P. (Isn’t his real last name Jones? - so very British)

Sad. Maybe more than usual for someone I didn’t know. Maybe because in his unique way he seemed larger than life and also because caught totally off guard.
Rest in peace.

I’m stepping through the door
And I’m floating
in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today

For here
Am I sitting in a tin can
Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue
And there’s nothing I can do.

:(

There’s an article from an hour ago that says, “It’s a good time to be David Bowie.” I wonder if the Hollywood Reporter hit send on one of those stand-by obits.
