David Bowie R.I.P. (Updated)

At 69, David Bowie succumbed to cancer, shortly after release of his latests, Dark Star.

I send blessings to him. For me, he was the Kilimanjaro of late-twentieth century seminal rock music (in the broadest sense). So original I can't even think of anybody who *really* tried to emulate him, while the number of musicians who state he was a major influence is legion.

OMG: Simpsons episode 11 was released on iTunes today, containing this line from Skinner: "She has a cat with two different colored eyes; his name is *Bowie*!"

Even my postman talked about Bowie today. That was one famous dude.
