Legendary British rock star David Bowie, who framed hits such as "Ziggy Stardust" with daringly androgynous displays of sexuality and costume, has died aged 69 after a private battle with cancer. A chameleon and a visionary, Bowie straddled the worlds of hedonistic rock, style and drama for five decades, pushing the boundaries of music and his own sanity to produce some of the most innovative songs of his generation.Mourners laid flowers and lit candles beside a memorial to Bowie in the Brixton area of south London where he was born, and tributes poured in from some of the biggest names in music, including the Rolling Stones, Madonna and rapper Kanye West.It was Bowie's 1972 portrayal of a doomed bisexual rock envoy from space, Ziggy Stardust, that propelled him to global stardom.This was a period which saw Bowie sporting an array of fantastic costumes, some reportedly based on the chilling Kubrick film "A Clockwork Orange".In 1983 Bowie changed tack again, signing a multi-million-dollar five-album deal with EMI.Bowie acted on stage and screen. Bowie kept a low profile after undergoing emergency heart surgery in 2004 .
