DAVID BOWIE’s people haven’t said what kind of cancer he had. But a close friend of his says it was LIVER cancer. Belgian theater director Ivo van Hove worked with Bowie on his stage musical “Lazarus”.
And he found out about it in November of 2014, when it was still in its early stages. But even then, it was very serious. Still, Bowie continued writing, even on his DEATH BED.
Van Hove says, quote, “I saw a man fighting. He fought like a lion and kept working like a lion through it all. I had incredible respect for that.”
Meanwhile, Bowie’s new album “Blackstar” might be his first #1 album, thanks to lots of people who probably wouldn’t have bought, listened to, or even enjoyed it if Bowie hadn’t died.
The album was released on Friday, which was Bowie’s 69th birthday, and it could sell more than 130,000 copies in its first week.
