David Bowie Music Sales Soar After Icon's Death

'But as I always said: I fell in love with David Jones.

Bowie performs in 1987 in NY.

And it seems Bowie's wish that fans would remember him for his music is being fulfilled: six of the top ten albums on the Australian iTunes chart are by him, with that parting gift, Blackstar, sitting at number one.

Bowie's representatives have not explained what kind of cancer the 69-year-old died from, only that he died after "a courageous 18 month battle with cancer." Bowie was posing in a promotional shoot for his final album, Blackstar. 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.

Harry described the late singer as, 'A visionary artist, musician, actor, a complete renaissance man'.

Blackstar, a jazzy, experimental LP also influenced by hip hop artists like Kendrick Lamar, came out just three days ago on January 8.

The third track, Lazarus, starts with the lyrics: "Look up here, I'm in heaven, I've got scars that can't be seen, I've got drama, can't be stolen, everybody knows me now". "This whole concept of a space man and a human being able to go into outer space and for me, as a kid who was really into space exploration and science fiction, it was just thrilling". She posted another tweet in which she wrote, "Sometimes you will never know the true value of a moment before it becomes a memory".

A memorial concert has also been planned in David's honour in New York's Carnegie Hall in March. "It was immediately clear it was very serious", says van Hove, who kept his promise and didn't disclose the information to anyone else before Bowie's death. It caused a worldwide outpouring of grief, with George following in the footsteps of stars such as Mick Jagger, Paul McCartney, Madonna and Kanye West by speaking of how much he admired the late star.
