David Bowie died from cancer. He was in his 68th year of life.
David Bowie had been diagnosed with cancer the year before and had continued to see a medical team despite never receiving a cancer-free diagnosis.
Bowie released his final album in 2016 titled Blackstar. It is believed to have been dedicated to his time in the medical profession and what he viewed as the end. Bowie was only on treatment for the past year and a half before passing.
In his later years, David Bowie often used his social media accounts to share his opinion and share his thoughts and feelings about current events. This resulted in a lot of attention for him, and a large fan-base. His last post, at the age of sixty, was taken down, and left fans with very little to no information about what he had to say. He still remains one of the most influential musicians of the 20th Century.
