David Bowie’s son Duncan Jones shares birthday tribute to ‘goofball’ dad

David Bowie’s son has shared a sweet throwback photo in tribute to his dad on his birthday, labelling him a ‘goofball’. 

Duncan Jones, 49, shared a photo of him with his late father, who died on January 10, 2016, writing: ‘Happy birthday, goofball.’

He later added: ‘Embarrassing dad pics are the best. I’m working on some of my own with my kids.’

A fan replied: ‘I sometimes I tell my kids when they roll their eyes at me, “I’ll bet even David Bowie’s kids thought he was uncool sometimes, and he was the coolest man in the world!” True or false?’

Duncan confirmed that he too had had the odd moment where his dad was ‘embarrassing’, replying: ‘More than you can imagine.’

January 8 marks what would have been Bowie’s 74th birthday, and an official account was set up to mark the occasion on TikTok. 

The official David Bowie TikTok account told fans: ‘To celebrate David Bowie’s birthday, you can now find all your favourite Bowie songs on TikTok’.

Paul Hourican, Head of UK Music Operations at TikTok added: ‘We are truly honoured to welcome David Bowie and his music to TikTok. 

‘He remains one of the most influential and acclaimed artists of all time and his music has defined multiple generations and cultural moments. 

‘We know the excitement our community will find discovering his music and creating using the indisputable Bowie sound.’

The Starman had died two days after his 69th birthday at his home in New York following a battle with liver cancer. 

He had been diagnosed 18 months earlier but had chosen to keep it private, releasing his final album Blackstar two days before he died. 

The music legend had insisted he did not want a funeral and was cremated instead with his ashes scattered in a Buddhist ceremony in Bali, Indonesia as requested in his will.
