Shocked to say the least. Only saw the Advert for his latest album Saturday and thought how well he looked for his age as always
RIP indeed

Shocked. Was only listening to his new album yesterday thinking how fresh it sounded and how remarkable it was that a 68 year old was able to sound so innovative. The big C was surprising as he smoked like a train for most of his life.

Another rock hero departs. Very much a shock, had no idea that he was ill.

RIP David

FFS! What a shocker, this is bigger than Diana (well the media hyperbole might well be). To get in perspective what a career he's had I'm 52 and I've been listening to his music since I was nine years old! What's my favourite? Depends on my mood, anything from Ziggy, All the young dudes possibly my fave of all time (probs written about me innit) Dandy Warhols, Putting out fires with gasoline...
RIP to another cross dressing freak.

For reasons too dull to go into there's a clutch of songs that formed my gateway into popular music when I was about 9 or 10. In no particular order they were:

Killer Queen - Queen
Space Oddity - Bowie
Blanket On The Ground - Billy Jo Spiers
I'm Not In Love - 10cc
Far Far Away - Slade

I didn't particularly choose them and I offer no comment on their respective artictic merits. They were just the first pop songs that I was aware of having discovered in some way myself as opposed to having been pointed towards. As such, I suppose, they have defined everything that I have kistened to since - or at least put me on the path to that music.

Quite simply Bowie has always been there charging away at the artistic boundaries amd innovating wildly all over the place while I have plodded along in his wake soaking it all up some time afterwards. The androgyny, the drugs, the strange kind of otherness of his sexuality, the shocking clothes and make-up and all that didn't really play any part in it all for me although I can imagine how seismic it was at the time. Those barriers had been stormed and dismantled before I became aware that there ever were any.

Bowie, to start with, was always the sort of music that the bigger boys were into. He was like an artist that an elder brother would be into first who would think filter down to the younger sibling.

That, I think, is how I would consider the early stuff: Ziggy, Hunky Dory and so on. It was much later, kind of Scary Monsters/Let's Dance that I realised his true genius and he became more than a jobbing rockstar. Here was stuff that was interesting in a host of ways from the imagery and PR to the music to the videoes and all of it was mesmerisingly poppy and commercial but always always always uber-cool. But then he always was and it took me a while to catch on.

But alongside all that was the collaborative stuff: Mott, Iggy, Lou Reed, films, theatre. He was never too up himself not to share a little of that Stardust with others.

He's left a body of work unrivalled in quality, quantity and diversity and even some dodgy politics were, for me, expunged when, with typical generosity, he gave up a chunk of his Live Aid slot for that Cars video...

Bowie was right up there with the very greatest of them all: Lennon, McCartney, Presley, Sinatra. In fact he might have been the greatest of them all.

And he was, quite simply - and by a long, long way - the greatest on-stage performer I have ever seen.

RIP.

Used to wind my old man up a treat, "he must be on drugs! Just look at him FFS!" Geddon Dave. Interesting what you are saying about one of the greats Franny, don't think Sinatra should even be on that list, sure he could sing but he didn't change fook all just sang well, Bowie was a changeling and changed music in all sorts of directions, no comparison IMO.

I'm gutted about this, knew he wasn't well but the news still came as a shock, I almost feel as though I grew up with him. RIP STARMAN.

Couldn't believe this when I heard it this morning. Genuinly shocked! I got into Bowie in the early 80s as soon as I was old enough to get properly into music. Scary Monsters was brilliant and got me into a lot of his earlier stuff too. He'll be missed. RIP.

While camping out a Wembury beach last night, I listened to an excellent programme presented by Bowie himself., talking of his career, how he bounced around the world, looking for inspiration, and drugs, then continued his travels trying to get off drugs. Reminisced of his days with Bolan, Eno, Lennon and Iggy. Great stuff.
He came over as very engaging. A very good listen on the iplayer. David Bowie Verbatim.
Phil Collins was also interviewed on Loose Ends, but that was like watching the turnstile paint dry.
