David Bowie passes away at the age of 69

One of the most creative singers of our lifetime David Bowie passed away today at the age of 69. Bowie succumbed to the cancer he was fighting for nearly 2 years and in that time was able finish and release his last album "Blackstar".

He will best be remembered for his hit pop songs (China Girl, Let's Dance), but he should also be remembered for the innate ability to traverse musical genres without a hitch. He was also a great actor with quite a few memorable performances in films such as Christopher Nolan's "The Prestige" and David Lynch's "Fire Walk With Me"

Bowie is survived by his wife Iman, whom they were married since 1992; his son Duncan Jones and daughter Alexandria.
