Old friend Richard Branson, and devoted admirer Joe Elliott have shared their thoughts, as well as some of the cream of Irish music
Tributes continue to arrive to the legendary David Bowie, who passed away this morning following a battle with cancer. He was 69 years old.
Among those to pay their respects were his old friend Richard Branson, superfan Joe Elliott, and some of Irish music's leading lights, all touched by the death of an all-time icon of music.
Unthinkable. The world has lost one of the most important artists and icons of our time. I was moved immeasurably by David Bowie. RIP.

When I heard it sent a shiver through me. I thought David Bowie would live forever. Still, in some ways he will https://t.co/RUNS7mLkWw
