I can't believe it really. He just made it to 69; his birthday was 8 January. Died from cancer, at home with his family. So so sad to realise that the genius of this man is now gone.
This is one of those "where were you when ..." moments. In years to come, we'll ask each other. And I'm sitting here at my desk looking out a beautiful summer dusk - the golden haze on the horizon - and shouting inside "Nooooo! It can't be true!"
A truly legendary artist; an under-rated actor; and a true enigma. RIP David Bowie.
