Word has just come out of London that rock legend David Bowie died peacefully at the age of 69 after an 18 month battle with cancer.

His son confirmed the sad news and a statement was shared on the artist’s social media channels.

“David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18-month battle with cancer,” the statement reads.

“While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief.”

Despite various rumors that circulated about David’s health for a few years, he had just released his 25th album entitled ‘Blackstar’ on January 8th which was his 69th birthday. His work over the past 5 decades will forever live on as some of the most ground-breaking, thought-inspiring and game-changing music of all time.

Bowie had many hits over his long and stellar career including “Life on Mars“, “Young Americans“, “Space Oddity“, “Rebel, Rebel“, “Let’s Dance” and “Fame“.
