Remembering David Bowie - 1947 - 2016

David Bowie

Farewell, Major Tom

There's a starman waiting in the sky....

On the morning of the 11th January, we woke up to the news that one of the World's most influential and most-respected artists had left us.

David Bowie died after fighting an 18 month battle with cancer - a battle which he kept very private. Legendary singer, songwriter, actor, fashionista - these are just some of the titles David Bowie can lend his name to.

You can find out more about the sad news, and the World's reaction here from the Pirate FM News Centre.
