STP bassist Robert DeLeo also posted further tribute messages on Twitter.

He also retweeted this:

David Bowie has died after a battle with cancer, his rep has confirmed. He was 69. He just recently released a new album titled Blackstar.

“David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer. While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief,” read a statement posted on the artist’s official social media accounts.

This loss is crushing. With Scott Weiland’s death in December, I’ve lost two of my favorite singers of all time in just over a month. When I met Scott and interviewed him in December, I was wearing my Aladdin Sane shirt, and we discussed our favorite Bowie material. Now they’re both gone. Bowie was one of the most inventive singers of all time melodically and lyrically. Bowie created new worlds with his albums and songs, and was constantly reinventing himself and always staying relevant.

When I was driving home last night I was listening to “Under Pressure” and thinking about how sad it was that Freddie was gone and that I’d never see him live, but I thought, at least we still have Bowie, maybe I’ll get to see him live some day. Now that will never happen unfortunately.
