I would like to be as optimistic as Micky and tell that David will never die. Still, there were a lot of rumours talking about serious health problems (the fatal genre ones).
 
When you look at his site, there are sevearl months with no real interesting stories. I really fear for him.
 
I guess that it is useless to tell that this man means a lot to me (as Genesis, Yes, Tull, Floyd, Purple, Led Zep, Hendrix  and  a lot more...).
 
I have rated five of his albums with 5 stars: Ziggy,  A Lad Insane, Station To Station, Low and Scary Monters.
 
Four stars for The Man Who Sold The World, Hunky Dory, Diamond Dogs, Christiane F, Hours. As many artists featured on this site (and I mentioned only a few above), he WAS part of my teenage days (wildlife). Life WILL sound different to me without him.

I was kind of a late comer to Bowie.  My favorites are usually ones where he's working with someone with a good prog reputation like Fripp or Eno.  Outside was the the first that really got me into his stuff.  Heroes was the first one I had though.  Heathen, Low, Scary Monsters, and Lodger.  I know that's six, though I have others and two DVDs, not counting the Black Tie White Noise deluxe edition, which comes with a DVD.  Sometimes only prog on the fringes, but always an excellent musical artist.
