A lifetime of music came to an end on Sunday, January 10, as music legend David Bowie, 69, died after an 18-month struggle with cancer.
"David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer," the artist's Facebook page announced. "While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief."
Nearly 40 years ago, back on March 21, 1976, Bowie was arrested along with rocker Iggy Pop for possession of about half-a-pound of marijuana, reports Gabrielle Bluestone at Gawker. Bowie, Pop and another man and woman were staying in a three-room suite at the Americana Rochester Hotel when they were raided by vice squad detectives at about 2:25 a.m.
All four were held for a few hours at the Monroe County Jail before they were eached freed on $2,000 bond, reports Dylan Stableford at Yahoo News. Bowie paid everyone's bail.
