David Bowie dies, aged 69

Having only just released his 25th studio album 'Blackstar', David Bowie has died at the age of 69.

As one of the most era defining artists of the last 40+ years, Bowie (whose real name was David Robert Jones) was an inspiration to nearly everyone in the music industry today and thanks to his glorious array of alter-egos, even the fashion industry was taken aback with his trailblazing style.

The following message was posted on his Facebook page:

“January 10 2016 - 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.”

Watch the video to his latest single 'Lazarus' below. Something that suddenly has a whole new meaning today.
