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.
