David Bowie

Perhaps the oddest story of Bowie's last days comes from the Suffolk Gazette - saying he was staying in Suffolk over the New Year, and popped into the Taj Maharaja in Bungay for a curry. Apparently without much prompting, he sang The Jean Genie for the benefit of other customers, and signed autographs on paper napkins.

Three days before his death, he released the album, Blackstar. There's a disturbing video to accompany the song Lazarus, directed by Breaking Bad's John Renck. He knew what was going on. American chat show host Jimmy Fallon thinks he's spotted a little humour in the video - claiming there's an acknowledgement of his weekly "Thank You" notes feature.
