His death was a blow to the head. The music industry is much poorer without David Bowie, he was one of the most influential artists ever. A true star until the end.I know that he even wanted to release a new album after 'Blackstar' and that he didn't take his death for granted, although he knew the seriousness of his condition. His death broke our hearts. Dead, or alive David Bowie is UNFORGETTABLE.

There's a star man waiting in the sky.He'd like to come and see us,but we sing worse than Bowie.Everyone does.

R.I.P David Bowie.
