We are going to close our live coverage here, thank you for following. We'll leave you with some of David Bowie's own words, spoken to graduating music students at Berklee College, Massachusetts, in 1999.
Quote Message: Music has given me over 40 years of extraordinary experiences. I can't say that life's pains or more tragic episodes have been diminished because of it.
Quote Message: But it's allowed me so many moments of companionship when I've been lonely and a sublime means of communication when I wanted to touch people.
Quote Message: It's been both my doorway of perception and the house that I live in. I only hope that it embraces you with the same lusty life force that it graciously offered me.
Quote Message: Thank you very much and remember, if it itches, play it.
