Rock icon David Bowie died of cancer just three days after the release of his final album, Blackstar, at the age of 69. It appears Bowie (real name David Jones) was on a lifelong search for truth and meaning in his life.
According to The Christian Post, "Bowie told Ellen DeGeneres in a 2004 interview that he experimented with a number of religions including Christianity before finding his place as a singer. 'I was young, fancy free and Tibetan Buddhism appealed to me at that time. I thought, "There's salvation." It didn't really work. Then I went through Nietzsche, Satanism, Christianity . . . pottery, and ended up singing. It's been a long road,' he said." more >>

During his 40-plus-year career, Bowie, who experimented with Christianity and appears to have held on to parts of the experience, excelled at glam rock, art rock, soul, hard rock, dance pop, punk and electronica.

Terminally ill country singer and songwriter Joey Feek, who is currently in hospice care, had some ups and downs over the holiday season, her husband Rory Feek disclosed in a recent blog post. Rory, also a country singer-songwriter, is the other half of the country/bluegrass duo Joey + Rory.
"The holidays have been a roller-coaster for my bride," Feek wrote. "She's had some good days, some bad days – some wonderful moments, and some deep pain that the morphine just couldn't seem to touch," he revealed.
"Though she managed a smile most of the time, Joey's heart was heavy and she was feeling some things she hadn't before," Rory said, adding: "A sadness. A fear of the unknown. And even some anger – not at God, just at her situation I suppose." more >>
