Rock legend and icon David Bowie has passed away. He was 69.

Bowie died Sunday after an 18-month battle with cancer, his publicist Steve Martin told CNN.

“David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer,” said a statement posted on his official social media accounts. “While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief.”

Bowie was born in South London as David Jones. His song “Space Odyssey” made him a household name. His fashion forward style and eclectic nature  was a staple in his career. His longtime wife of 24-years, Iman, has yet to release a statement.

Bowie released his latest album, Blackstar, on Friday, his 69th birthday. It hit No. 1 on the iTunes chart in the UK and No. 2 in the United States.
