'Bowie Forever'

A year to the day of David Bowie‘s death, family, friends, fans and collaborators have taken online to remember the icon on the anniversary of his passing.

The musical icon died after a battle with cancer on 10 January 2016, just two days after he celebrated his 69th birthday and released what would become his final album, ‘Blackstar’.

While Gary Oldman led a tribute gig to his friend with a slew of past collaborators and special guests backed by his old live band in Bowie’s native Brixton this weekend, his son Duncan Jones and wife Iman took to Twitter to honour him:
