I was thinking the same thing, Coma.
Looking on Amazon, practically all his albums are sold out. Same thing happened with Motorhead, too.
To lose Lemmy, Scott and David in such close proximity really hurts. I'm feeling nothing but sadness and gratitude for those guys. David Bowie's loss is very bittersweet for me as Tony Visconti alluded to. What better way to go out than to make a killer album for your fans and be surrounded by your family. He went out on top and that's something to take solace in.

The lyrics to some of Bowie's songs used to really infatuate me as kid. Space Oddity, Ashes to Ashes, Ziggy Stardust, etc. Always felt bad for Major Tom. I credit David Bowie for making me a fan of Sci-Fi just as much as Led Zeppelin making me a LOTR nerd.
I remember listening to David Bowie mixtapes as a 4 year old. Good times.

I had most of his albums via someone I know that I had integrated into my collection. I have since given those back as I want my own copies so I'll be purchasing a good chunk of his stuff over the coming months. Our birthdays are right around the corner. Thinking I might get the Five Years boxset as a Birthday present for myself.
I'll never complain about spending money on good music.

Does Five Years have anything unreleased on it?
I think it mostly consists of B sides and other rare material, demos...that sort of thing. Probably stuff you could find you looked hard enough. Haven't looked on what Nothing Has Changed has on it either.
Saw this on blabbermouth:
Belgian theatre director Ivo van Hove, who worked with David on the "Lazarus" Broadway production, told DutchNews that Bowie told him he had liver cancer, because he needed him to know he would be too sick to attend rehearsals. "He said that because he knew that he may not always be able to be around," Ivo van Hove told DutchNews.
"Bowie was still writing on his deathbed, you could say," Ivo told the site. "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."
ditto on the sad face...
