Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo...

Bowie was the absolute greatest. He was so innovative back in the day ... and for many years after 'the day'. The Berlin years were stunning.  I'd better go listen to my greatest hits cd.

I didn't realize that he shared his birthday with Elvis (and my sister-in-law) but I knew he shared his name with Davy Jones.

I sympathize with you, Cat. "Labyrinth" was one of my favorite 80's movies, and the songs were fantastic.
Personally I'd like to see his coffin launched into space. What could be more fitting than for David to eternally be...

Watched Labyrinth w/some friends tonight. Man, hard to believe he is gone.

Still have Rebel Rebel, Starman, Young Americans, The Man Who Sold the World, Space Oddity and others on my playlist. I added Blackstar on Friday but haven't gotten all through it yet.

If there are such things as Alien life forms, David was definitely one. I don't -quite- believe he is dead yet. I think it is possible they came and took him back home.

Can't help but think if he is dead, and I am not ready to admit that, but if he is-Freddy and David are having one hell of a reunion tour together. Somewhere.

A David Bowie memorial concert is to be held at New York's Carnegie Hall on 31 March. The Music of David Bowie was originally billed as a tribute show featuring his songs, but organisers changed it to a memorial in the wake of his death. Bowie producer Tony Visconti's house band will perform, along with artists including Cyndi Lauper.

David Bowie's body has been privately cremated in New York, according to reports. The cremation took place soon after his death, avoiding a funeral service for the star who closely guarded his privacy in his final years. In line with his wishes, no family or friends were present at the ceremony, the Daily Mirror reported. A publicist for the singer told the BBC they were "neither confirming nor denying" the story.

It is worth noting that it was today fifty years ago that David Jones changed his name to David Bowie to avoid confusion with Davy Jones from The Monkees, just in time for the release of his single, 'Can't Help Thinking About Me'. He would later say that he chose "Bowie" because he liked that "big American bear-killin' knife."

Cremated? Fine. Now when is the next time we rotate the crew of the International Space Station? David's ashes should be jettisoned as close to Mars as possible, to the strains of his greatest hits. Preferably beginning with "Space Oddity", but in keeping with the tone, "As The World Falls" must be included.

New York has officially designated 20 January as David Bowie Day, in honour of the musician who died earlier this month.

The British singer spent much of his later life in New York, settling in the city permanently in 1992.

A proclamation was issued by the Mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio and an announcement was given at the final performance of Bowie's musical Lazarus, at the New York Theatre Workshop, on Wednesday evening.

“In an iconic city like New York, it is only fitting to celebrate the life of David Bowie, a global icon who made New York his home," said Luis Castro, on behalf or the mayor's office.

"New Yorkers aversion to the status quo has become one of our trademarks, and it is this affinity for the new and the fresh that made us a fitting second home for the king of reinvention himself," the proclamation states.
