After the tragic loss of Ian Fraser “Lemmy” Kilmister, sad news are on the billboards yet again.
The White Duke, Mr. David Robert Jones aka David Bowie has passed away yesterday, January the 10th after a long struggle against cancer.
A death which was hard to believe, right after the release of his 27th studio album to date, “Blackstar”, on which he spent all of his very last efforts. Truly his last artistic will.
Here’s the official communication from Bowie’s social profiles.
“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.”
Surely a sad day for music and the loss of a remarkable and prolific talent.
“The stars look very different today”. Rest in Peace, White Duke.
