David Bowie has died after a battle with cancer, his representative confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter. 

“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. 

The influential singer-songwriter and producer dabbled in glam rock, art rock, soul, hard rock, dance pop, punk and electronica during his eclectic 40-plus-year career. 

Bowie’s artistic breakthrough came with 1972’s The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars, an album that fostered the notion of rock star as space alien. Fusing British mod with Japanese kabuki styles and rock with theater, Bowie created the flamboyant, androgynous alter ego Ziggy Stardust.

Here is the last photo I shot of the legend in Hollywood with a friend having lunch.

He will be missed.

Shake a Hand by Deleted Angel

A dancing

childhood dream,

concert after concert

was my

manhood theme..

To shake the hand

of

an idealized band.

i’ve always

had the desire too

meet

this marvaless performing

man…

Standing front stage,

on the last-night

of their touring date..

He reached down

to shake my hand,

as i gazed back

trembling!

Those deep blue eyes,

in that moment,

there was only

two souls throughout,

the whole damn land

me and my memory…
