David Bowie dies aged 69 ...


Recommended Posts

Sad day for many people. I didn't know whether to post this in music or TV & Movies, as he has been successful in both areas.


While I was never a Bowie fan, I can't deny he was talented, and I enjoyed a number of his tracks. The most influential for me was Rebel Rebel, which was one of the first guitar riffs I actually managed to nail.


Of his movies, I was particularly fond of The Prestige, which was a great story in its own right.


Rest in peace David. You will be missed by many.

I was, and am, a fan of his, and admired his ability to cross borders, so to speak, in terms of musical style. I'm no film buff so not really up to speed on that side of his career, but believe he had talent and on-screen presence. What has struck me, looking at social media feeds, this morning is that hec learly appealed across the age groups; few can claim a consistently successful career spanning teh breadth of time his achieved. i'm reluctant to refer to music stars as 'legends', but surely he comes close.

I am absolutely gutted about this. Thought I'd heard it wrong in the radio this morning on the way to work.

RIP David Bowie (innovator, pioneer, influencer)

One of those days that unites everyone whether you were a fan of his music or not.

His influence on popular culture is unimaginable

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
