My favorites were probably "Heroes" and Rebel Rebel", although if you ask me tomorrow I might change my mind.
Jack Straw from Wichita, cut his buddy down
And dug for him a shallow grave, and laid his body down
Half a mile from Tucson, by the morning light
One man gone and another to go, my old buddy you're moving much too slow
We can share the women, we can share the wine

Heart broken.. Just completely devestating. Saw pictures of him the other day promoting black star and he looked great..

I don't know if it made it to the states but, I went to his career retrospective in Paris and it was something else.. He knew..

Peace and love to all who loved him

David Bowie, may he rest in peace, was great and my sister, she was a real fan.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

I actually shed a tear whilst listening to "Lady grinning soul" on the radio this morning.
That's never happened with the passing of any other of my "Heroes".
Gutted.

When do we want it?

This hit hard.

Bowie was a real artist and a great musician.

He he was the medium for his art, like a paint brush or a guitar.

No idea what to make of black star as obituary, the performance of Lazarus, or the David Bowie Is show in this context.

I had the pleasure of working with Bowie's long-time guitarist, Mick Ronson, on a few recording projects. (Mick played that fabulous guitar riff on Rebel Rebel).

Did you know Bowie had two different colored eyes? I've only ever met one other person with this particular anomaly.

I too have wondered and it can only be thought of... just as his life was a piece of Art so is his death.

David Bowie ALWAYS had great timing. I am not old enough to remember this myself, but back in the 1950s, Lucy Ricardo on "I Love Lucy" gave birth to her fictional son, "Little Ricky," on THE SAME DAY that Lucille Ball gave birth to her real-life child. If you read some of this morning's papers (USA Today, for example), you will see that many of them went to print BEFORE word got out that Bowie had passed away -- but these papers DID run reviews of "BlackStar," and it seems as though the reviews are universally extremely positive.

As Jonathan points out, the video for the song "Lazarus" is rich in images that now make a lot of sense -- clearly, he knew his remaining time was limited. Bowie has given us so much to think about, and to marvel at. I am not going to lie, I am not a fan of all his stuff; but I have always admired his creative spirit and his commitment to growth. God bless him, he never was content to rest on his (considerable) laurels.

One "renaissance man" that the world will just have to get along without.

Good bye Ziggy, rest in peace.

One of my favorite Bowie performances, because it was so...random. Yet it worked so well...

Singer, musician, composer, lyricist, designer, actor...artist.

This one was like losing a family member. Bowie's music was the soundtrack of my life for so many years.

Favorites: his work with Brian Eno, anything off of Scary Monsters, and his duet with Queen's Freddie Mercury: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YoDh_gHDvkk

RIP Thin White Duke

Much sadness here! He knew something of production as well; and in my opinion launched the career of a Texan, Stevie Ray Vaughn, who played on "Let's Dance" (hey, who IS that guitarist anyway?). btw, thanx Arthur for reminding us that his band included Mick Ronson. Last time I saw a video of Bowie was in a Christmas Carol set of duets with Bing Crosby. A 'renaissance man', yeah! Lynn

I've got a few full concerts from Bob Dylan's "Rolling Thunder Revue" in '75 and '76 with Mick playing guitar.

He died awful young.

That guitarist re-shaped rock and will not be forgotten. I drank many a beer listening to Mr. Vaughan's licks.

His music really meant a lot to me at various times in my life. A lot of musicians did, but he was one of my top ones. May he rest in peace. Smile

Hey, Jack ... I was at one of those Rolling Thunder concerts, in Boston in '75 or '76! Who knew that years later, I would work with Mick?

We were all crazy in those days ... (I could tell some stories) ... and that's unfortunately why Mick died so young.
