LONDON (AP) — Two days after releasing an album and turning 69 years old, David Bowie has died following a battle with cancer.

Bowie died Sunday surrounded by his family. His hits include "Fame," ''Let's Dance," ''Changes" and "Under Pressure" with Queen.

Bowie was married to supermodel Iman (EE'-mahn) and he had two children.

Fans have gathered to lay flowers beside a mural of David Bowie in Brixton, the south London neighborhood where the singer was born in 1947.

Fish-and-chip shop owner Roland Lowery, 59, came with his 21-year-old daughter, a life-long Bowie fan.

Lowery said he first heard Bowie when he was 15 years old. He says he "was just blown away with what he did." Lowery says Bowie will be remembered for "the way he influenced people to just get up in the morning and put on what you want to put on and be who you want to be."

Bowie's representative says the singer died "peacefully" Sunday after an 18-month battle with cancer.
