His new album takes on even deeper meaning now. He had to know and it had to influence the music. Again, broken. I've been listening to his catalog for the last few days anyway. I will continue to finish it out.

Haven't felt this bad about something like this since Warren.  Not sure if knowing for a while or it being sudden (at least public-wise) is the worse of the two.

Honestly never loved a lot of his music, but he was always welcome on my TV or radio.  He seemed really cool and had a grace about him.  Loved his duet with Bing Crosby and of course his various roles.

RIP and fuck cancer.

I actually thought his name was Ziggy when I first became aware of him in the mid-late 70s. He was cool and weird and one of my secret favorites (since most of my friends designated him too odd to be a true rocker - yeah yeah, bad friends, but I was 8).

I saw him in Labyrinth and wondered why he wasn't in the credits... figured it out shortly after.

Sad to see him go... very sad.

I'm just kinda stunned.

Was watching the Martian on the weekend and at one point a tune from Ziggy Stardust comes on and I thought, finally a decent tune in this movie.

It really does explain a lot about that last video.   Heartbreak  He really kept this thing quiet.  I didn't know he was sick, let alone dying of cancer, either.

If he had to go, this last album was just one fantastic way to do it. It's just fantastic from top to bottom. And yes, the lyrics on many of the songs start to make a shitload of creepy sense knowing that he probably was well aware of his impending mortality.

I don't know how much he suffered going into that good night, but reports say he went peacefully. He had to go sometime, and I'm having trouble feeling bad about his death, seeing as he manage to pull off a new release 3 days before he went. Will I miss him? Of course, but at the same time, I can't help feel some contentment in knowing someone did the whole 'life' thing rather well, to the end.

I should get back to nature, too.  You know, like going to a shop for groceries instead of the computer.  Maybe a condo in the woods that doesn't even have a health club or restaurant attached.  Buy a car with only two cup holders or something.

Not only did he seemingly live fully, but according to myself and many of my friends, his last album is a masterpiece.
