Still shocked to see an iconic figure from our formative years gone. Enjoyed a run through Station to Station and the Berlin Trilogy over the Christmas break and just yesterday, working on my digitised photo project, reached 1978 and the Bowie concert at Newcastle City Hall.
Ziggy played at maximum volume this evening will be an appropriate tribute I think for someone who was a huge influence on my life in so many ways.

Never a massive fan to be honest (I like the hits of course) but always sad when someone who brought so much joy to many passes away

RIP David.

Best wishes

Another U.K. legend taken from us. sad

He went to space, visited Mars, met the spiders, came back home, sold the world, wrote about it all... and he was just getting started.

R.I.P. sad

This came as a complete shock to me in light of the fact he just released an album three days ago. I didn't realize he was ill.

Sadly enough, I thought in the 2000s - with releases like Heathen and Reality - he had hit a new stride, producing some of his best albums since Scary Monsters (1980).

Simply gutted. Got into him through the Berlin trilogy, such innovative and influential albums. Thought he was an amazing singles artist. The Next Day was an incredible album for someone to return to the music scene after such a long hiatus. Only bought Blackstar on Friday. He was more than a musician, a true artist. Mysterious and yet real. Love him in the film The Man That Fell to Earth. So many bands I got into would name him as an influence; Bauhaus, The Cure, Ultravox, the Editors, the list is endless. A musical chameleon and genius. Will be sadly missed.

My thoughts exactly. I could probably name my favourite songs by him on the fingers of 2 hands, the obvious 2 for me being Life on Mars and Space Oddity, but I do feel enormous sympathy for his fans, here and elsewhere. I know how much my musical heroes (pun) mean to me, so I can empathise.

He seems to have done a Freddie Mercury, working through his illness to produce a final item for the fans, and, I guess, keeping him occupied and thus diverted from the looming horizon. RIP David, you brought joy to many and that's a rare gift!

He deliberately kept the illness secret to maximise the impact of his death. It was the last great surprise he had for us.

What a unique talent. Iím stunned. Still canít quite believe it.
R.I.P. to a true legend cry

I had the great privilege of seeing David on the Let's Dance tour at the old Sydney Showground. He was a unique talent who will never be forgotten. I think the next time I hear Heroes I will probably cry.

Rest In Peace, Starman. cry

Devastated.
The first album I ever bought was alladin sane 43 years ago when I was 11. The last album I bought was blackstar 2 days ago. I never met him and feel strange getting all emotional over it all but it feels like he's been with me all these years.
Shit!
