Musicians and Actors React to the Death of David Bowie

As we previously reported this morning, David Bowie passed away yesterday after an 18-month battle with cancer. His death came as something of a shock, as his cancer diagnosis was not made public and on Friday he just released a critically praised brand new album, Blackstar (styled as ★), which was also Bowie’s 69th birthday. All day the tributes have been pouring in from fellow musicians, both those he worked with and those he influenced, as well as from actors and others. Below is a selection of notable social media posts about Bowie’s passing, starting with his son, film director Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code).

Goodbye friend. So many tears, and so lucky to have passed in the same solar system.
