David Bowie made clear, in a way that was exhilarating and sometimes frightening, what every rock star since Elvis Presley and Little Richard had been telling us all along -- that anything was possible.Representative Steve Martin said that Bowie died "peacefully" surrounded by family after battling cancer for 18 months.Bowie turned 69 on Friday, the same day he released a new album called "Blackstar". He also released a music video on Friday for the song "Lazarus," which shows a frail Bowie lying in bed, eyes bandaged. Mick Jagger, Lou Reed and Freddie Mercury were among the many artists who collaborated with Bowie and were influenced by him.Bowie also wrote the glam rock anthem "All the Young Dudes" for Mott the Hoople, worked with John Lennon on the James Brown-styled funk of "Fame" and brought in a young Luther Vandross as a backup singer on his hit "Young Americans".British Prime Minister David Cameron tweeted that Bowie's death is "a huge loss". He wrote he had grown up listening to and watching Bowie and called the singer a "master of reinvention" and a pop genius who kept on getting it right.
