(NEWSER) – Ashes to ashes, funk to funky. David Bowie has already been cremated in New York City, and the only public services or memorials for the beloved singer will be those that fans organize for themselves, sources tell the Mirror.

A source in New York tells the paper that Bowie wanted to "go without any fuss" and intended his music to be his farewell to the world. The Guardian reports that a long-planned March 31 concert at Carnegie Hall will now be a memorial concert instead of a tribute, with many big stars expected to join previously announced headliners The Roots and Cyndi Lauper.
