Several media had picked up the “news” that, in a 70 person ceremony that went down yesterday in the Nevada desert, music legend David Bowie had his ashes scattered.
Originally stated as, given permission from his widow, Iman, Bowie’s ashes were said to have been scattered across the desert by his god children, while attendees painted their faces with his trademark lightning bolt. The event was said to have been held at The Temple, which is a massive structure meant to memorialise loved ones.
On why Burning Man, a source close to Bowie’s family told E!:
“David’s godchild and David had long talks about Burning Man and what it stands for, and David loved the message behind it.”
BUT, it seems that this story may not be true as another source close to the family said bluntly, “There is no truth in the story.”
So, I wonder what the truth is here. I think he should have gone the Hunter S Thompson route, and just had his ashes shot by a canon OVER the desert.
