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.

Brilliant musician .

The soundtrack to our lives.

A little worrying if you have reached a certain sensitive age.

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

      Police are investigating a Bedlington care home where inspectors say some elderly residents weren't kept safe.
      Medicines had allegedly gone missing at Baedling Manor Care Home, while the local authority was called in to monitor the home's safeguarding arrangements.
      The home's 49 residents "did not always experience safe care and treatment", inspectors from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) said.
      The CQC said it had launched an inspection after being contacted with concerns about "safeguarding people, staffing, recruitment, medicines, infection control, consent, complaints and the governance of the service".
      Downgrading the home, run by Alcyone Healthcare, from 'Good' to 'Requires Improvement', the report said: "People were not always safeguarded from the risk of harm. Incidents were not reported or recorded properly, and action was not always taken to address matters.
      "The home was placed into organisational safeguarding by the local authority and there were police investigations in progress."
