The world has lost an iconic and much loved singer, songwriter, actor and altogether brilliant artist.
I was shocked and very upset when I heard about his death this afternoon after his battle with lung cancer. So many people remember him mainly as Jareth the Goblin King from Labyrinth, but I will always remember him for more than that. I remember dancing around the house as a kid as my dad played his music on 8-track and singing along to his music when I sat in the back of my parent's '79 LTD, while they sat in the front smoking and preparing to drop me off at my grandmothers place before they went to work. His music for me, is intertwined with so many childhood memories.
World, we have lost a legend.
