Ashes to Ashes: R.I.P. David Bowie

Yesterday we lost David Bowie to cancer. He was 69 years old. More than a man, David Bowie was a multi-dimensional being with the voice of an angel, the mind of a god, and the style of a space alien.

“This ain’t rock’n’roll. This is genocide!” Stay freaky, Bowie.
