R.I.P. David Bowie

David Bowie died yesterday after fighting cancer for 18 months. His Facebook page made the announcement this morning: he died “peacefully” while surrounded by family. He turned 69 Friday, the same day of the release of his last album, ★ (Blackstar). Read the Facebook statement below. 

Bowie’s son, Duncan Jones, film director, confirmed his death on Twitter, tweeting a photo of himself as an infant with Bowie, “very sorry and sad to say it’s true.” The Hollywood Reporter also confirmed it. 

There will never be such a creative force like Bowie.
