It was a shock. Of course it was. Make your coffee, switch on the radio and you hear Life on Mars on Radio 4. What had happened? Had Bowie died? Indeed he had. An unconventional celebrity life, with an unconventional celebrity death. In this age of social media, gossip columns and photographers desperate for that one image, it is astonishing that David Bowie had cancer for 18 months and it never once got into the media. No one – apart from close friends and family – knew. He did something really unusual for a modern celebrity. He died privately.

Have you ever told a friend something that happened to you, only to have them respond with, “Oh, let me tell you what happened to me!”? Kinda rude, right? But you have probably done it to others as well. How self-important we often are. How in love we are with our own story. We are all narcissists by nature. Sure, we know that the world does not revolve around us, but we sure would like it to.
