David Bowie, Legendary Artist Dies at 69 | Dogalize
David Bowie, the legendary musician known for innovating the story of rock music, died yesterday, at the age of 69 after a 18-months battle against cancer.
The news came from his official Twitter profile: “January 10 2016 – David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle…”
Extremely eclectic and peculiar figure, Bowie, also known as Ziggy Sturdust and The White Duke, was also a pet lover. He was often photographed with cats and dogs. The pic of this article, for example, is part of a promotional campaign for the album Diamond Dogs, released in 1974, on the cover of which Bowie himself turns into a half dog half man creature.
Today rock music loses one more star. Anyway, although he’s no more phisically part of this world, he will live forever thanks to his songs.
