Bowie was best known in the geek world for his role as the Goblin King, Jareth in Jim Henson’s Labyrinth, and his breakout role as a lonely alien in The Man Who Fell to Earth. But perhaps he was best known worldwide for his music career. He wrote and performed such hits as “Changes”, “Let’s Dance”, and “Under Pressure”. His album Blackstar released last Friday.

We’ll miss you, our fantasy king. Good luck and Godspeed.

Quotable

“Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, I have fought my way here to the castle beyond the Goblin City to take back the child that you have stolen. For my will is as strong as yours and my kingdom as great… You have no power over me!”
