This is what it looked like Monday outside David Bowie’s New York City apartment located on Lafayette Street.
Fans were dropping off flowers as part of a makeshift memorial. It was their way of paying homage after they learned the legendary musician had passed away.
Published reports say the rocker passed away Sunday after an 18-month battle with cancer. This news came as a surprise to many who had no idea Bowie was sick.
Some may have gotten a hint after he released a video taped while lying in his bed. The video served to promote his new album , “Blackstar.” The album was released on Friday, which was Bowie’s last birthday.
Who can forget the classic Bowie songs: “Young Americans,” “Fame”, “Let’s Dance”, “Space Oddity” and “Under Pressure”?
Take a look at Bowie performing “Let’s Dance” in this YouTube Clip:
The Grammy Award winner is survived his supermodel widow, Iman.
He is also survived by two children, Duncan Jones and Alexandria Zahra Jones.
Bowie was 69.
That’s the Lowdown!
