After an 18-month battle with cancer, music legend David Bowie has died just two days after his 69th birthday. According to his social media accounts, David Bowie “died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18-month battle with cancer. While many of you will share in his loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief.”
The influential singer, songwriter and producer had just released his 25th album, Blackstar, on his birthday last Friday. According to Bowie’s friend and producer, Tony Visconti, the 7-song album was a “parting gift” to his fans, friends and family.
