Well, I was shocked and saddened today to hear of the passing of music and culture icon / legend David Bowie. Apparently he had been battling cancer for the past 18 months, but his illness was kept out of the media. He also released his latest album ‘Blackstar’ last week to much critical acclaim.
I wouldn’t say I was a fan in the traditional sense, and much of his main output was either before my time or when I was a lot younger. However I have always respected him as a talent and the impact he has had on modern culture and music as a whole. He was one of a kind and will be sorely missed the world over. My thoughts go out to his family and those closest to him.
