Cancer decided to be a real motherfucker this past week.

Because Bowie, which is reason enough? Or are there more cancer shenanigans I am unaware of?

Lemmy Kilmeister died of cancer just about a week ago.

David Bowie inspired my love of music more than any other person. I can't help but feel that the world is a sadder place with him gone.

He defined my teenage years, and I feel like his passing has made a sad division in my own life, where I now feel a lot older and lonelier.

I think you just described I how I feel better than I could. I imagine there are a lot of people that feel the same.

This really came out of nowhere. I didn't even know he had cancer. I thought he was still doing his annual concert tours. I'm shocked and sad. Aside from his music, he seemed like a really great guy.

I was never a Bowie fan, until a friend talked me into going to one of his concerts back in '76. I just found this rehearsal footage from that tour. RIP

Edit: On the other hand, we have him & Eno to thank for for that gated snare sound, that everyone (Phil Collins) copied in the 80's.

You can't blame Bowie and Eno for the fact that Phil Collins ruins everything.

It's such a strange and old feeling to realize that was 30 years ago. It feels like living in America Pie and the levy is dry and we just learned that the music has died.

This hurts. He was so iconic, his birthday was close to mine and that always made me feel cooler by association. If I would have had to choose one person I thought was immortal it would have been him. I hate reality so much.

I have his Let's Dance song going on here tonight and I can't believe he is no longer dancing with us.

It's like someone just told me there's no such thing as imagination. That all the beautiful impossibilities that you can dream up are not real. It never crossed my mind he would one day die, he was that enigmatic.

Tonight, all my Bowie albums are going on, starting with Outside.

Good night, sweet prince. Or should I say Duke? RIP.
