His work will still be inspiring artists decades from now.
I was brought up on Jean Genie, Drive in Saturday, Life on Mars - these were just chart singles that came along in an average week.
You then look back and realise what a golden era that was.
He was a special talent and many artists who followed him would have found life much tougher.

It's an overused word but today we really did lose a legend.

Spot on Innes.

My parents are both in shock about this terrible news. I grew up listening to Bowie as Mum and Dad played the albums endlessly. I particularly remember the Betamax videos of the Let's Dance videos and Blue Jean being played all the time:-) I remember not fully understanding Bowie, his lyrics, his image, I still don't!

At Christmas I was going through old photos of my childhood and it reminded me all of the Bowie posters and pictures on the wall at home.

I saw Bowie on his Outside tour at Wembley in November 1995 and loved it.

Watching the 'Lazarus' video now it is painfully obvious that he is saying goodbye...very sad.

Following David's death a lady who lives locally to me organised a David Bowie night. Items were donated for a charity auction with all proceeds going to Cancer Relief. Bowie music was played all night and all the money taken at the bar and for the food went to the charity. I believe the final total of monies raised was over £1400. Myself and my friend Julie (who was lucky enough to see Bowie live and I am so envious of her for it) had a fantastic time meeting fellow Bowie fans, some of them had travelled a long way to be there.

RIP David - a supremely brilliant and talented man whose legacy will live on.
Go to sleep little earth, I was there at the birth, out of the cloud burst the head of the tempest

The picture you see is no portrait of me, it's too real to be shown, to someone I don't know
