A very sad day indeed. David Bowie will always live on through his music, but through his movie roles too. He played the PERFECT Tesla in The Prestige. It's a crime he never starred in a Tesla film.

Rest in peace, Mr. Bowie.

My God, I didn't even know he was battling cancer. We're losing rock legends left and right. Terrible way to start off a new year. My heart goes out to his family.

Ground control to Major Tom, R.I.P David Bowie

Extremely sad. My dad died last week and we decided a few days ago to play Heroes as one of his songs at his funeral next week. Now this news makes it even more sad.

A true legend.

R.I.P

i'm really sorry for your loss

I'm sorry for your loss man. I wish I could say more. My grandfather died last November after a 2 year battle with lung cancer which he got from second hand smoke. The man was in his 90's and still in great shape before cancer came and turned his life upside down. I don't think most people realize just how bad cancer is until it hits them or a loved one. :(

My aunt currently suffers from cancer. Lemmy Kilmister died a few short weeks ago from it and now Mr. Bowie. It really puts life and this dreaded disease into perspective.

If you need anyone to talk to I'm here for ya brother!
