Sunday (January 10) marked the five-year anniversary of David Bowie's death, and his son Duncan Jones marked the melancholic milestone with a poignant, reflective message.
"Today marks 5 years since dad died. We are all a little sad, coping individually in our own ways," he tweeted alongside the Blackstar album art — his father's last album, which came out two days before his death. "But it’s both remarkable & delightful that dad is still so clearly loved by so many. Yes, he’s missed... but with so much of 'him' in the work he made, he’s clearly still here."
