Rip David Bowie
“News guy wept when he told us Earth was really dying / Cried so much that his face was wet / Then I knew he was not lying.” – Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars
The world got a little less musical today. Words can’t fully express the sadness in our hearts here at Rock & Brews over the death of David Bowie. The iconic, boundary-bending and truly one-of-a-kind musical tour-de-force quietly lost his battle with cancer, just two days after his 69th birthday, surrounded by family.
You showed the world it was going to be yourself. You will be greatly missed.
There was an outpouring of condolences and remembrances on social media from the music world, Rock & Brews founder Gene Simmons tweeted his condolences and a note about Bowie’s influence on him.
