    Rock icon David Bowie dead at age 69

    David Bowie, whose incomparable sound and chameleon-like ability to reinvent himself made him a pop music fixture for more than four decades, has died. He was 69.

    Bowie died Sunday after an 18-month battle with cancer, his publicist Steve Martin told CNN.

    "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," said a statement posted on his official social media accounts.

    David Bowie R.I.P.

    He just put out a new CD a day or two ago.... One of my favorite performers.
    I do not think outside the box, I do not think inside the box, I do not even know where the box is.

    I remember watching this very good movie a few years ago. I didn't even realize that Bowie was in it.

    In my opinion the greatest live performance on TV in rock history was of a song David Bowie wrote which was performed by Nirvana:

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=fregObNcHC8

    I later read that Bowie was infuriated by people referring to it as a Nirvana song and actually admitted to cursing some kids who he heard saying "what a great Nirvana song." Kurt Cobain was a great songwriter in his own right and ironically at the end of this song you can hear him attribute the song to Bowie which was very classy.

    I post this as s tribute to two legends: Bowie and Cobain.

    one of the great quotes i read today

    "He seemed like one of those people who was here before the universe began and would be around to switch the lights off when it was over."

    I am honestly still in shock... Bowie's music is intricately part of the person I have become...

    my personal favorite:

    Also a huge icon for bisexual men and women. My brother is a huge fan of his music, me not so much but I really love how the guy was not afraid to be different and not afraid to be himself. One of a kind.
