In all the tributes that have poured in for David Bowie since his death was announced early on Monday morning, there has been praise of his creativity, individuality and unmatched musical talent. His name has been mentioned alongside Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson and John Lennon as one of the men who changed popular music forever.
But alongside his creative genius, another theme has emerged amid the eulogies. Through all the fashion forwardness, the fearless music and the pioneering poetry of his lyrics, there was something about Bowie that shone brightly in the circles he moved in. It was this: David Bowie was a kind man.
