I think when we all woke up this morning we were all shocked by the terrible news of David Bowie’s passing after an 18 month battle with cancer.

An artist who spanned 6 decades, he truly was a musical icon and genius. Whether it’s Space Oddity, Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Slane, the late 70’s early 80’s pop like ‘Let’s Dance’ or his more wistful work towards the end of his life, Bowie was a true innovator and a true great.

As your aware here at RSVP the staff are comprised of Actors, Musicians and performers many of whom have been inspired by Bowie.  As have many in the industry they have been putting their own tributes up on social media sites.

 “He's wasn't supposed to die like the rest of us. RIP to the best” Elliot

“RIP Bowie you legend” Jacob

“I was lucky as a child in the sense both my parents bombarded me with music from the 60s and 70s rather than just let me listen to whatever was in the charts at the time. Life On Mars rocked my world as a 7 year old and then when I saw him in Labyrinth, well, I fancied the bloody pants off him. Gutted to learn of David Bowie's passing this morning. An utter genius. Your music legacy will live on, as will your impact on fashion and the millions of fans who felt ok being a bit of a freak because of you. ” Alex

“I cannot express how sad today's news makes me. R.I.P  just isn't enough.” Dom

“Devastated to hear about David Bowie! What an icon. Rest in peace” Thomasin

It’s difficult to sum up what Bowie did for music, film and fashion and I certainly don’t possess the capability to do so. But I think everyone will have their own cherished memories of Bowie and his songs, I know I certainly do, but I just wanted to leave it with one final thought, most people would be happy to reinvent music once, Bowie managed it countless times.

Goodbye Starman.
