It has been reported that iconic musician David Bowie has passed away after an 18-month battle with cancer. The news was revealed on Bowie’s social media pages before being confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter and Bowie’s son, Duncan Jones.
He was 69 years old.
David Bowie has managed to have a long and successful music career, with over two dozen albums under his belt. He has also managed to garner critical acclaim and was known as a visionary for his knack for pushing boundaries and dabbling with different musical styles including glam rock and electronic music.
Just last week, Bowie released his latest record “Blackstar” on his birthday. The critically-acclaimed experimental record would prove to be Bowie’s final album.
Rest in peace, Starman.
