January 10, 2016: David Bowie (69)
One day after Motörhead's Lemmy Kilmister's funeral service, the news of the death of David Bowie shocked the music world. Bowie had just released his final album, "Blackstar," two days previously, for his 69th birthday. The public didn't know he had liver cancer. Bowie had long established himself as a pop icon - among others with his Ziggy Stardust character and his greatest hit, "Heroes."
