    I was shocked. I hadn't even heard he was ill. He was unique.

    From what I understand, he was only 69. Very sad.

    Love his music. I notice the family's not divulging the type of cancer he had. However did he just release a new album on Friday with being so sick?

    I saw this on the news. So sad. I took a liking to him, but later on when he started wearing suits. Took my son to see a movie with him where he played a space man. weird movie! still, I liked him.

    What a loss. An unusual and groundbreaking artist. I didn't like all his stuff, but there was plenty I did like. R.I.P. David Bowie.

    Yes, he did just release an album on Friday, which also was his 69th birthday.

    I wasn't a big fan of his but the strength he had to work up to release an album as a last memento to all fans.

    My next-door neighbor toured with him several times as his sound equipment manager. I hope people respect his family's privacy as they grieve.

    it was liver cancer. According to one press release he also had suffered six heart attacks. Bowie was awesome. We grew up with his music though I can still see the look of horrified fascination on my dad's face anytime he was on the telly "is that a loon or a Quine?" (Boy or girl)

    Amazing to see the outpouring of sadness on social media. Well respected for his artistry and contribution to the music world. I am impressed with how the family is handling this. His last release is his goodbye to the world....Bowie style! An era...in my life and my age group...has past. RIP Mr. Bowie. Ah.....mortality.

    Loved his duet/medley with Bing Crosby-Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy, one of my favorite Christmas songs.
    He was from my era, not a huge fan of his music(think Carpenters, BeeGees, Doobie Bros., Eagles) I did read about his love for and his wife- what a beautiful couple! He is the same age as my DH(reality check).

    I've always loved him. I'm a child of the 70s :-) I read an interview online today with one of his record producers. He completed this album and released it as a farewell to his fans and the timing was as he wished. Listen to the songs and read the words, he was truly an amazing talent!

    There was chatter that he could have sold a whole lot more records if he'd told everyone he was sick. But what a class act that he didnt exploit his cancer.

    I have always LOVED the video he did with Mick Jagger to the song "Dancing in the Street". Watched it just the other day on Youtube.

    Did you know that his name was actually David Jones?

    The album he released had his message about death from what I've read. He was such a talent.
