No, me neither. I remember as a 5 or 6 year old watching TOTP as this wierd looking guy with a goldfish bowl on his head sang "ground control to Major Tom" First "pop" song I can ever remember hearing. At the time I didn't realise how much I would come to love his music from my teens right through to my adult years. And China Girl video was probably the first time I saw an adult tit.

Laid in bed first thing and had to check the wifi (long story) so I grabbed my phone & launched the BBC news app. Bowie dead. RIP legend!

I got his new album, Blackstar, on Thursday. Apart from the radio it's the only music I've listened to since then.

Woke up this morning to hear the news as it was first breaking, couldn't believe it.

He always did what he wanted to do. And he wanted to do it his way and he wanted to do it the best way. His death was no different from his life - a work of Art. He made Blackstar for us, his parting gift. I knew for a year this was the way it would be. I wasn't, however, prepared for it. He was an extraordinary man, full of love and life. He will always be with us. For now, it is appropriate to cry.

I remember during the Ziggy Stardust era a mates brother (big Bowie fan) came to school with the full-on red & perfectly coiffured big hair - looked amazing. He got sent home & not to come back until he'd got rid of it. He re-appeared a few days later with a skinhead - was hilarious as this was also frowned upon by the school but what could they do now? He was an instant hero!
