Bowie died two days after his 69th birthday and the release of his 25th and final album, Blackstar.

Longtime Bowie collaborator Brian Eno was another star who took to the social media site to pay tribute to the Life on Mars singer.

“Gone But Never Forgotten: RIP David Bowie (January 8, 1947 – January 10, 2016),” he wrote alongside a pencil drawing of Bowie as a boy with a Ziggy Stardust lightning bolt on his face which was first shared by Iman.

In separate messages he shared clips from Bowie’s career and the singer’s influence, including a version of song Heroes by Blondie & Robert Fripp live in New York in 1978.

On Sunday (08Jan16), on what would have been Bowie’s 70th birthday, his son Duncan Jones posted a note about his late father.

“Happy birthday (grand)dad. We love you. Goodnight,” he uploaded along with personal photos.

While he hasn’t yet mentioned his famous dad on Tuesday (10Jan), he did share with fans that his son, Stenton David Jones, was celebrating a milestone.

“In other news, my lovely little boy is 6 months old today!” he said. Hordes of fans also took to Twitter to remember the icon.

And Spandau Ballet star Gary Kemp marked the occasion by creating a special tribute film with author Nicholas Pegg, who penned The Complete David Bowie, about the late musical legend and his significance in London.

Gary shared a link to the film on his Twitter account, telling followers: “A little film I made with @Nicholas peg about #DavidBowie and his place in London and our hearts.”
