The world lost someone special yesterday. David Bowie, legendary singer, songwriter, icon and inspiration to countless other artists died yesterday due to complications with cancer. His final album, Blackstar, was released just days prior to his death. Bowie worked on Blackstar over the last year while secretly battling cancer. Close friend and producer Tony Visconti knew the album, filled with references to death and sickness, was recorded as a farewell to fans in the wake of his passing.
