Of all the things I expected to wake up to today, this was not it. My heart was still sore after the loss of Lemmy Kilmister, the legendary singer of Motorhead. But, life can be unfair, and it can be cruel.
Despite the hopes of many that this was a hoax, David Bowie has indeed passed away peacefully after a battle with cancer.
This was confirmed by his son, Duncan Jones, who posted the shocking news on various official social media accounts.

David had only just released a new album, Blackstar, on Friday. It seems the lyrics of a certain song show that he knew his time was at an end.
“Look up here, I’m in heaven
I’ve got scars that can’t be seen
I’ve got drama, can’t be stolen
Everybody knows me now”
Rest in peace David. Keep Lemmy company, won’t you?
