  1. I’ve been in tears and feeling sick since my husband woke me with the news. With a mod mother and a rocker father as parents I was never going to *not* be exposed to Bowie’s music in my early childhood, and I remember hearing Space Oddity on a regular basis.

    Say hi to Major Tom for us David, and write some more beautiful duets with Freddie so we can listen when it’s our turn to walk amongst the stars. RIP
