Had a bit of a cry about it earlier. Saw a text and facebook when I got up, but I got to work early and when tey had the news on in the staff room it really hit home. Surprisingly so much more so even than Lemmy. Went to HMV on Saturday to get three copies of Blackstar - myself, my sister and my mum. It's just so goddamn sudden. Like we all knew Lemmy was ill, I just assumed Bowie had taken some time out and was making a gradual come back.

Just a heads up. Celeb deaths often happen in threes, and Donald Trump is 69.

Keep your fingers crossed, people.

True, but Lemmy was 70. I remain hopeful.
