It's a sad day for music, as the world farewells an icon, not just in music, but fashion, movies and pop culture.




David Bowie passed away today at the age of 69, confirmed by his publicist on Twitter. Bowie had quietly been battling cancer for the last 18 months.



Known for countless albums, including 1969's 'Space Oddity' and movies such as 'Labyrinth', Bowie will be greatly missed. His final album 'Blackstar' was released just last week, his first in three years. Tributes are pouring in for the musical legend, including from his son Duncan Jones, an acclaimed director in his own right.
