* It has been well-documented that Bowie has been trying to write a dystopian stage musical since at least the '70s (''Diamond Dogs'' came out of an attempt to write a musical based on ''1984'' that was aborted by Orwell's estate). In 2015, he finally got to see this dream realized with the opening of ''Lazarus'', which received overwhelmingly positive reviews.

-->'''Tony Visconti:''' His death was no different from his life - a work of Art. He made ''Blackstar'' for us, his parting gift. I knew for a year this was the way it would be. I wasn't, however, prepared for it. He was an extraordinary man, full of love and life. He will always be with us. For now, it is appropriate to cry.
* Yoko Ono revealed after his passing that in the 80's, after John Lennon died, Bowie would pick up Sean Lennon at his boarding school in Switzerland, take him around to museums, galleries, and to the recording studio, in essence being the ParentalSubstitute Sean needed.

* His and Annie Lennox's performance of "Under Pressure" at the Freddie Mercury Memorial Concert, one of the few times he ''ever'' gave a live performance of the song. By the end, the two of them are embracing in their mourning of an immortal music legend.

* While "Five Years" is primarily a TearJerker thanks to it being about the narrator and the people around him having the impending end of the world sprung on them, the intimacy of the sentiments and observations in it also make it touching and sweet.
