On January 10 the world lost David Bowie, a music visionary and an art genius, whose talent spanned over decades and affected music of all genres. Here we look at some of the music journalists who have responded on Twitter with shock and disbelief of Bowie’s death, but most importantly want to remember and tribute David Bowie for who he was, thank him for his genius that will continue to live on and try to put in words what he meant to everyone. Rest in peace, Starman.
