HOUSTON, TX - David Bowie is gone, but he won't be forgotten. The legendary British music icon died on January 10, after an 18-month battle with cancer, just two days after his 69th birthday and release of his latest album Blackstar. After his death, the album quickly shot up the US Billboard Chart to mark Bowie's first No. 1, knocking Adele's blockbuster 25 off the top spot. Looks like it's Davids turn to say hello from the other side.

Backstar might be Bowie's goodbye to fans, but some folks aren't ready to say their final farewell. Bowie inspired ink, seems to be popping up all over Pinterest these days. And Flea, of Red Hot Chili Peppers fame, posted his new Bowie body art on Instagram. But if tattoos aren't your thing, there's always the tribute concert. A massive memorial concert is being planned at New York's Carnegie Hall in March. Mick Jagger and Paul McCartney are slated to take stage. Needless to say, ticket prices will probably be astronomically high!

Perhaps the most fitting tribute, is by a Belgian astronomer dedicating a constellation honoring Bowie's out-of-this-world fame.Talk about being a true rock star! From body art to heavenly bodies, the Starman might be gone, but his light will continue to shine.
