David Bowie Has Passed Away

Very sad news to report, as one of the most influential artists of our time, David Bowie, has passed away from cancer at age 69.

According to his Facebook page: "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."

He had just released his 25th album "Blackstar," to much critical acclaim, on January 8 (his birthday.)

As the music world wakes up and reacts to this sad news, we will keep you updated.

See David Bowie's song, "Lazarus" from his new album, seems really spooky now.
