The Man Who Fell To Earth
I haven't felt this shocked by the death of a celebrity before. David Bowie was an incredible person, with some incredible faults. His lyrics took things that we could never talk about, and let us sing about them instead. I'm really going to miss living in a world where Bowie was as well. He played us until the very last minute, giving us one of the most beautiful musical expressions of death in the form of his final album Blackstar so close to his own. Such a poignant farewell to such a special person.
There's no better time to look into donating to cancer research.
