It was sad news to wake up to this morning as it was officially announced that singer David Bowie had died after an 18-month battle with Cancer.

My very first introduction to Bowie in the world of film was in 1986 when I went the brilliant and much loved movie, Labyrinth, in which he played the Jareth the Goblin King.

He was an English singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, arranger, painter, and actor. Bowie was a figure in popular music for over four decades, and was known as an innovator, particularly for his work in the 1970s. His androgynous appearance was an iconic element of his image, particularly in the 1970s and 1980s. – Wikipedia
