Following the news that David Bowie lost his 18-month battle with cancer on Sunday night, celebrities ranging from Kanye West and Madonna to Bob Saget all came out to pay tribute to the iconic rocker on social media. The beloved singer—who had just celebrated his 69th birthday on Friday, Jan. 8—was known for his innovative music and for his boundary-pushing style right up until the very end.

In a colorful career that spanned nearly four decades, Bowie was still producing music until shortly before his death, releasing his 25th studio album, Blackstar, on his 69th birthday. Columbia Records released a touching statement about the loss: "We are deeply saddened by the loss of David Bowie. It was an honor and a privilege to release his music to the world."

Farewell, Major Tom.
