Rock-and-roll legend David Bowie died Sunday after a secret battle against cancer, his publicist confirmed early Monday.

He had turned 69 on Friday.

The singer-songwriter, whose decades of hits redefined rock music and whose gender-bending alter ego, Ziggy Stardust, became a pop-culture icon, passed away at his London home, his loved ones at his bedside.

“David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer,” read a statement on his Web site.

“While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief.”
