    Crushed me, for real. He was just behind The Stones, for me, in terms of favorites.

    The sunshine bores the daylights out of me.

    In light of this the recent lack of promotion makes sense but I’m literally grim…I haven’t felt this upset over a celebrity death in years

    just trying to do my jigsaw puzzle before it rains!

    I cannot believe this.    I am so, so very sad.      This is going to take a while to sink in.

    The world is a lesser place today.  Such a loss.

    Wasn't looking too good, but I was feeling real well

    So sad that Bowie’s gone. One of my absolute favourite artists ever since I was 10.

    Had just ordered Blackstar, on Sunday evening after enjoying a downloaded version last week, and saw the news the next morning.

    Erik, this is so upsetting.    It just seems impossible.       In my eyes he seemed more than human – as though he should somehow be immune to diseases.   I know that’s silly but his music made him larger than life.    Any way, I am thinking of you.   I know you are a huge fan.

    OMFG! This really is a shock… Oh David..what a pleasure it was knowing you and witnessing you doing all those fantastic things!

    I posted this November 23 in the Bowie thread:

    “Even today David with his new ten minute video of Blackstar is so relevant: it’s not of this earth… The influences you find in his work, like Brel & Brecht and the  theatricality, his expressiveness and how he still celebrates mystery always was and still is a comfort.”

    Now it will be more than a comfort. I’m not gonna say goodbye because you’ll never leave me.

    Like all of you, I am saddened and in shock. I really cannot talk right now. I’m so very sad. God Bless David.

    I am not sure why but I had a feeling he knew it was close to the end.. Blackstar is closure on his work. He performed at peak level all the way to the end. Very sad. Will definitely be playing his music today. Heroes..

    The Idiot World Tour, Seneca College Toronto, 1977. This was amazing because we saw a very humble David with his back to the audience, playing piano and backing vocals. Grateful we were there. Have a look:

    Now we know why he was being so private while working so hard. This is such a huge blow. Words fail me at the moment.

    Really horribly sad. Waking up to this in disbelief just like when Jack Bruce passed away.

    This is so sad. Just very recently I came across his set from live aid for the first time.  He was amazing that day.

    He’s the lead story on the local news this morning.

    Hard to overstate what a seminal moment this show was for me growing up. I was 16.
