A sad day indeed. An original in a world of fakes.

A sad sad loss to us music fans. What can I say, a bad start for 2016, Lemmy and Bowie in a short space of time. I'm gutted.

David Bowie was a 'one off'. He certainly brought a lot of pleasure into many lives with his original and often brilliant music, his showmanship and his creative genius.
RIP

Listening to a full hour of Bowie music on Absolute radio tween 9 and 10 this morning. The music world seems genuinely in shock.

Even I liked one, anyway, of his output. More impressively no one qualified had anything but fond 'good things' to say of him at a personal level.

Sad to hear today of Bowie's passing. An incredible talent. Music and singing, his dazzling videos during the MTV glory days, an accomplished actor too.

Jazzin' for Bluejean...think I'm going to have to find it on YouTube and watch it...was one of my favorites.

Never bought any of his songs, but do recall Major Tom being played regularly on the duke box in the canteen at the old NSTC college at Gravesend. A classic tune.

Seems he was a nice bloke BUT - the Telegraph today has no less than 4 full pages on him. I think it's a bit over the top

LOL. I could not have identified any of his songs but "Merry Christmas, Mr Lawrence" I'll always remember. He must have had exceptional talent. RIP.

Would be a fitting gesture if he were to be cremated, that his ashes would be sent up to the international space station to be scattered, so Ziggy Stardust would carry on forever :)

BBC has received complaints after devoting 18 minutes on an international news bulletin to his death before going on to what they considered lesser items. According to one spokesperson he changed the world, I had never heard of him before, must start wearing my hearing aids more often.

Calmez vous. Death is a one off event and I don't begrudge him a few column inches or broadcast minutes. I surely will not get them!
