Stunning. All of it. That he was generous enough to even think about a "parting gift" for his fans, as he was dying. That it, Blackstar, is as incredible a gift as it is. That he stuck around to see it released, and was gone just days later.

Watching the Lazarus video in the proper context is almost unbearable, and I'm a new fan. For those of you who have been there for years, I'm thinking about you today, and I'm sorry for your loss.

As sad and heartbroken as I am that he's gone, I can't help but take some comfort in how he chose to leave us...embraced through his music. grouphug

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

I was shocked to hear the sad news this morning. I've been watching clips on Youtube of his Soul Train appearances. It's safe to say that there probably wouldn't have been Prince without David Bowie first. I had no idea he was ill....may he RIP. Sad news indeed...

Me neither. I'm still in shock. I just can't believe there's no more David Bowie. I can't accept it. I'm so fucking depressed. I know that's silly because he was a famous artist and I didn't know him personally. But I can't even say how much the man's art meant to me. This is just crushing.

Don't feel like something's wrong with you for feeling sad even though you didn't "know" him. We all have artists that we feel a connection to and it's perfectly normal. He'll be missed...

Man, this. That video fucked me up. My best friend just died of cancer in November at age 49 and he turned me on to Bowie in High School. I've been a huge fan ever since. Woke up this morning and the first thing my wife said to me was "David Bowie died". What a shitty way to start the week.

It's so true. There's something for everyone in his catalogue. There's a Bowie album for every mood, every stage of your life.

It was so strange this morning...I put the news on just after 8.00am and the BBC's top story was mid-flow. I couldn't work out why they were discussing his music. I was thinking "must be a slow news day if a Bowie tour announcement is the leading story". I was even thinking ahead to finance and when he might do the UK, if I could afford to go, if he might play Glasto this year again...

Then they started talking in the past tense and I was like "what the f*ck?". One of my best friends is a huge Bowie fan; I looked down at my phone and sure enough there's a text from him. I didn't even need to read it, I knew he'd passed.

Shocking that it was so sudden and unexpected, but typical of Bowie to do it his own unique way, with a secret epitath in a fantastic new album. As one of the other posts on here put it so wonderfully, the Earth is billions of years old; how lucky we are that we were here at the same time as David Bowie.

Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night by Dylan Thomas

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

I got my first Bowie album at age 12 or so, when I bought the reissue of "Low" at Strawberry Records. I had probably seen him on VH1 or something and took an interest. Before Bowie, I mainly listened to what my parents suggested, tedious classic rock like Rush and Styx.

And with that CD, EVERYTHING started to happen. He awakened my awareness of my own sexuality and the possibility of art. He showed me what it really means to have an identity. He is by far the biggest influence on my life. He lit a fire in me, showing there was more to the world than my tiny small town.

There was always something distantly forbidden and mysterious about Bowie. I remember my parents and sister being suspicious and worried about my intense interest in him, which made me all the more obsessed.

Personally . I think we are all Boring with No Lives cause all we do is talk about Prince,Criticize and Gossip. I need a Horny Man is what I Need and probably so do most of yas. We are Sexually Frustrated what we R... Amen..!!! - zelaire

Tin Machine played The Roxy in hollywood once, in the back the rain drain pipe if you climbed it it went right past windows n if open you could maybe sneak in. I did that and when I got to the window Bowie and the band were sitting right there on a couch, I looked at them n vice versa, I said "hey,they smiled. I couldnt hold my position n slipped off the pole which wasnt very high off the ground nor did I care. It was so awesome. I later saw TM at The Palladium twice. Fun times n great memorys. I saw him at the US Fest, he was the reason I went. Ive seen his shows everytime he came to LA. Autographed ticket stubs from Earl Slick n Garson. The Earthling show at The Universal Amp was so loud it hurt my ears for days, same for the sound and vision show at dodger stadium with nin. Im in the process of getting my Alladin Sane tattoo.
Damnit god why this sux ...
