Some think he survived, moved to England, and changed his name to William Shears Campbell.

Which also happens to be the plot of Alexandre Dumas' next novel.

The amount of knowledge collected here really is astounding.

6 years ago today we lost David Bowie.

Still very hard to believe.....I wasn't aware of his struggle with cancer.

I don't usually get upset at celeb and rich people deaths, I mean not really genuinely upset, if I liked them it's usually a good pretext to remember and honor their works. But Bowie gutted me in a personal way that really only Joe has done so far. I imagine only Dylan's passing will affect me similarly.

Agree with this. I think it was the unexpected nature of it that was shocking, I mean to those of us unaware of his health issues and had no inkling. Conversely, with Leonard Cohen, it was a sadness tinged with a great sense of thanks and privilege for the way he'd eked out every last drop of creativity to the very end. It was around this time 4 years ago we lost Dolores O'Riordan and that's one that hit hard, far too young and too much untapped potential.

I feel exactly the same (sans the Dylan part, though I will certainly be sad). The only other celeb death that was even close to being such a gut punch was Yauch's.
Got a Rake? Sure!

I didn't find out until the next day, Maggie told me about it as I was stepping out of the shower and I was dumbstruck. She felt really bad for being the messenger because she thought I already knew (I was listening to Station to Station the previous night). I tried to listen to Young Americans at work and immediately started crying the minute his voice came in, couldn't listen to him until the weekend when VH1 was doing a video marathon. Xite channel did the same thing last weekend and I started tearing up again. Like you, only Strummer and Bowie have affected me that way.

A friend of mine knew someone who was in band called—or maybe they did a song called—Bela Lugosi's Drunk.
