"A civil rights movement unto himself"

It's not surprising that of all the many tributes to David Bowie, some of the most articulate are from fellow musicians and gathered together in a post for The Talkhouse. Kim Gordon, Merrill Garbus and Stephen Merritt are among the contributors to the site to have offered their reflections and eulogies.

Meanwhile, if - like me - you're currently feeling somewhat ashamed at the relative dearth of Bowie albums in your collection and are thinking of rectifying the situation, head for Rough Trade, either in person or online, as they've pledged that for the remainder of this month all profits from sales of Bowie's records will go to Cancer Research.
