David Bowie Dead - Legendary Entertainer Passes Away From Cancer at 69

Legendary entertainer David Bowie has sadly passed away at the age of 69 after battling cancer.

“David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer. While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief,” a statement on his official Facebook account read. He died on Sunday (January 10).

David‘s influential career spanned over forty years, and he dabbled in other mediums including acting, fashion, and the arts as well.

Hours before his death was made public, it was announced he would be honored at a concert at Carnegie Hall. The Roots, Cyndi Lauper, the Mountain Goats and more are scheduled to perform in the March 31 concert.

David just turned 69 years old on Friday (January 8). He is survived by his wife, supermodel Iman, and kids Duncan and Alexandria Jones.

Our thoughts go out to David‘s family and loved ones during this difficult time.

    Britshit scam-rockers of the 1960 and 1970s. We can ALL be thankful the britshit fake-music scam “industry” died off by the 1980s!!
