Very sad to hear of the death of David Bowie. Both a music & style icon & influence on the League.

The word legend gets bandied about so much its meaning gets diluted. But Bowie was a genuine legend. I'm shocked to hear of his death, and very thankful that I got to see him in concert.
Well who's that shouting? John, ex-Moderator - all he ever gives us is pain!

For someone I never knew or met I've been totally devastated by this. I've been in a daze and crying all morning

Yes, very sad and shocking news to wake up to. I wouldn't call myself a proper fan but I did like his 80s pop stuff. I've got so many friends who live and breathe Bowie who will be devastated today. :(

My first proper record purchase was sound and vision. Can't say I enjoy all his music, but he was definitely a great influence on lots of people including the league.

Wasn't aware of type or progression of cancer, he had. Shocked when found out - since it's early here in the US. RIP and condolences to all those affected. One of the greats.

What can you say when a legend dies?

Such a wonderful outpouring of love for him. All of it justified. A true artist in every way. His influence on modern music can never be fully appreciated. All of my heroes seem to have adored him and many of them are expressing that on Twitter today and it's wonderful to read what he meant to them.

Yes, this was a surprise and he's no great age these days, rather sounds as if the cancer wasn't caught quickly enough. Bowie wasn't my favourite pop artist although I did like quite a lot of his singles. I thought that the Diamond Dogs album was his best.

Still feel rather dazed, shocked and deeply saddened by this unexpected news that broke yesterday. At first I thought it was some publicity stunt connected with the new album, especially if you've seen the latest promo video.

The term music legend is something that is banded about quite a lot but for David it is truly justified. He was a defining trendsetter in music and fashion continuously reinventing himself to stay relevant to the current scene.

Any true music fan can confess to having some Bowie in his/her collection, I myself have four albums (namely 'Aladdin Sane', 'Never Let Me Down', 'Black Tie, White Noise' and 'Earthling').

This is going to take me some time to take in and adjust to life without such a talent whom has influenced so many people and recording artists. David you will be greatly missed but your music, fashion and movies (let's not forget them) shall live forever!
