Photographer Mick Rock, known for his iconic pictures of Bowie and various rock legends, shared an image of the Starman on Twitter, writing: "I experienced Bowie above all as a piece of living artwork, constantly modulating and mutating like a series of startling reflections in a cracked mirror. He was fascinating...He was what the times needed and a whole lot more. "

Nile Rogers also took to Twitter this morning to mark the special occasion, writing: "Happy Birthday @DavidBowieReal You changed my life forever!".

David Bowie passed away two days after his 69th Birthday on 10 January 2016, following a private battle with cancer.
