The David Bowie Song That is Most Popular Now is ‘Heroes’: David Bowies Funeral & Memorial Concert Details

Rock legend David Bowie’s family is not alone in mourning his death. The whole world seems to have joined the family and friends in mourning his loss.

From British Prime Minister to German Government and from Madonna to Cat Steven or Yusuf Islam and common music fans are unable to fathom the fact that the rock legend David Bowie is no more.

The man who never saw a low moment in his professional music career spanning over 50 years had celebrated his 69th birthday merely two days before his demise. David Bowie’s latest album “Blackstar”, his 29th album was released on 9th December and is expected to break every record in the history in the days to come. He had suffered a massive heart attack more than a decade ago and was suffering from liver cancer for the last one and half years.

While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief.” His son Duncan Jones tweeted to confirm the news, reports abc.net.au. “Very sorry and sad to say it’s true. I’ll be offline for a while. Love to all,” he shared.

His initial phase involved lots of struggle. Born David Jones here in 1947, Bowie enjoyed a string of worldwide hits from the late 1960s onwards. Known for albums including “Heroes”, “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars”, and “Hunky Dory”, he established himself as one of music’s most innovative performers. His first hit was in 1969 “Space Oddity”, which told the story of astronaut Major Tom. It was released in time to coincide with the Apollo 11 launch.

There is no denying the fact that entering the 1980s, Bowie’s music became increasingly influenced by soul, disco and funk, while a burgeoning film career saw him appear in pictures including “Labyrinth”. On January 9, Bowie marked his 69th birthday with the release of a new album, “Blackstar”, with critics giving the thumbs up to the latest work in a long and innovative career. The album features only seven songs. The singer, songwriter, actor and artiste had returned to the music scene after 2013’s chart-topping “The next day”, itself released after a 10-year gap.

In the meantime Hello! Magazine has said that that Bowie’s funeral will be taking place in the United States, where he has been living with his family. Bowie died in his New York City home, surrounded by his loved ones, so there’s a good chance that the funeral will be held in Manhattan. According to BBC, a memorial concert is planned for New York’s Carnegie Hall in March.
