Mick Jagger, Trent Reznor and Blink-182 have all paid tribute to Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, who died yesterday aged 56.

Jobs, whose company has changed the face of how music is consumed and heard with the invention of the iPod and the huge success of iTunes, died after losing a long battle with pancreatic cancer.

Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger was one of the first to offer a tribute to Jobs, simply tweeting: "RIP Steve Jobs."

Nine Inch Nails mainman Trent Reznor did the same, writing: "Thanks for the tools, the inspiration, the possibilities... Miss you already Steve."

Blink-182 also honoured Jobs, tweeting: "RIP Steve Jobs. Thanks for everything that you have done for the music business and the world." 30 Seconds To Mars man Jared Leto did likewise, writing: "Maybe we can turn our phones and comps off at a certain time in honor of his contributions. RIP."

Coldplay also tweeted their respects, writing:

We are so sad to hear about the passing of Steve Jobs. In all of our encounters with him he was such a lovely man, and always so humble about his incredible talents. Like all of the people he knew, and the millions of others he didn't, we will miss him.

Guns N' Roses also took to their personal Twitter account to honour Jobs, they wrote: "When people say it's not about the possessions but how you're remembered — they are talking about people like Steve Jobs. RIP."

Zane Lowe also offered a heartfelt tribute, writing: "Steve Jobs RIP. A man whose exceptional vision helped to greatly sharpen ours." Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst also paid his respects – he simply wrote: "RIP Steve Jobs! True visionary."

Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx also offered his condolences and compared Jobs to inventor Thomas Edison, writing: "RIP Steve Jobs. Steve was of his era what Thomas Edison was to the beginning of the 20th century. You made all our lives a better place." Kids In Glass Houses frontman Aled Phillips also wrote of Jobs: "Just heard about Steve Jobs. Great loss. Made a huge impact on the modern world and a truly inspirational man. Left an indelible legacy. RIP."
