Also, the final videos and lyrical content of some of Blackstar's songs now take on new context and meaning.

It's a strange sort of wonderful that we got this one last record.

I was happy just getting The Next Day. Another one, and one that is so wonderfully him, is such a beautiful postscript.

Communication has been lost with Major Tom. He belongs to the stars now...

It's too weird
this is unsettling for us, but for him, his family and loved ones they are at a better place
I've been there at the end with cancer patients, hospice and loved ones, the last couple of weeks are grueling beyond belief I hope you never have to experience it.

I'm shocked. I woke and they were interviewing someone about Bowie and I just thought they were celebrating his new album. So sad.

If I believed in the afterlife, I'd be imagining a nice reunion like this:

David Bowie: The next thread and the next thread...

Not that I've ever been the world's biggest Bowie fan by any stretch of the imagination, but I don't think I've been that shocked about the death of anyone I don't know/celebrity death since Joe Strummer.

Bowie produced Reed's Transformer L P
lucky to have seen Bowie live about 10 times and Reed about 15 times.

Shocked and utterly saddened. I've grown up on Bowie my whole life. I just can't believe this.

Every time I catch myself getting sad, I turn on the magic dance. It's working wonders.

I can hardly believe the same person did that, the music, the costumes, the art, the films, everything he's done in his career. What a wonderful, magic man.

Bowie was also British.

He released the "Ziggy Stardust" album.

His wife was the model Iman.

I want to go back and examine Blackstar in all its apocryphal glory, but it's way too soon.

David Bowie: The next thread and the next thread...

Finding Bowie albums in 2003 propelled me down the rabbit hole of record collecting. I'd end up at the David Bowie section and I knew I could go home with something worthwhile. I built up a collection of his 70s to 80s works and it also helped me understand the connection of Eno and Roxy Music and Mott the Hoople. It was like he was the DNA of 70s glam rock.
