Being a big Bowie fan I was shocked and beyond saddened to hear of the untimely death of Brixton born David Jones and his alter egos David Bowie, Major Tom, Aladdin Sane and the Thin White Duke. An alien like, beautiful, iconic, genius who injected a dose of stardust and otherworldy glam into a grey, bleak, confused world where we use religion to justify war. Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars served as an electrifying backdrop to my teenage years and his Bowie universe inspired millions globally, sat in their living rooms, to dress up in extreme makeup, glitter and space platforms, to experiment sexually and creatively. Thank you Mr Bowie for Black Star your parting gift to your fans and see you later in the sky. RIP Bowie x.
