I was just looking at photos of him yesterday wondering how old he was..
Great talent..


EDDIE’S fingers aren’t fingers they are muscle-powered pistons that hammer guitar strings to the fretboard with the force of a rivet gun”.

In my opinion – one of the most unique and gifted song writers of his generation. RIP

I was actually shocked to read about it this morning. I bought Blackstar the day it came and never imagined it would be his final gift to his fans. Now knowing his condition when these songs were crafted they have a much different feel to them. Ever since last seeing him in 2004 I had hoped he would come out of retirement for 1 more tour but that will never happen.
RIP David Bowie.

9 Incredible Rock Covers Of David Bowie’s Music
By James On January 11, 2016

From Kurt Cobain to Gerard Way, David Bowie’s music has influenced countless bands and artists in Kerrang!’s world over the years. As musicians and fans alike gather today to mourn his death — the singer lost his battle with cancer aged 69 yesterday — we celebrate his life and music by taking a look at some of rock’s biggest bands’ takes on his discography…

9. Van Halen – Jean Genie

Quite why Van Halen never officially released this version of Bowie’s most boogie-riffic moment (it exists only as a live bootleg) is a mystery. Because with Bowie’s genius and coin-flipping cool attached to VH frontman and World’s Smoothest Man David Lee Roth’s louder-than-life wildness, you have perhaps one of the most explosive combinations in music history. Maybe there just isn’t a recording studio built that can handle it.

8. Eddie Vedder & Ben Harper – Under Pressure
7. Marilyn Manson – Golden Years
6. Foo Fighters – Under Pressure
5. Nine Inch Nails – I’m Afraid of Americans
4. Alice In Chains – Suffragette City
3. Smashing Pumpkins – Space Oddity
2. Placebo – Five Years
1. Nirvana – The Man Who Sold The World
