What is up with all these celebrity deaths lately - Lemmy from Motorhead, Natalie Cole, and now David Bowie?! According to an official statement from his camp, he succumbed to cancer which he had been battling for 18 months. It makes me wonder if he had known back then it was terminal and that he would be passing relatively soon. It just seems the timing of it all to be so crazy - just a couple days after his birthday and right after the release of his latest album, Blackstar. I know we will be seeing and hearing a lot about this in the days to come, but it still doesn't seem real to even consider it. He did live an amazing life and his tremendous impact on music will carry on.
