Music Legend David Bowie dies at 69

Posted at January 11th, 2016 | by Shivani Goel | in

The legendary rock star passed away today after 4 decades in the music industry. His latest album ‘Blackstar’ was released last week to coincide with his 69th birthday. An official statement was released by the artist’s official social media account:

“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.”

His son, Duncan Jones tweeted, confirming the tragic news.

Born in January 1947 as David Jones, he reinvented himself as David Bowie in 1966 and rose to fame worldwide with the release of his first mega-hit, the 1969 song “Space Oddity.” He was one of the most influential musicians of his time and the one constantly reinventing his musical style and appearance.
