The world is still reeling from the loss of not only David Bowie, but Ziggy Stardust, The Thin White Duke, The Goblin King, Major Tom and most of all – David Jones. Something just feels wrong about a world without Bowie, but the pain is eased by steady outpour of stories from friends illustrating his awesomeness. One of the seemingly more unlikely friendships in Bowie’s life was Ricky Gervais, who became friends with Bowie after the Rock God saw The Office and sent Gervais an email saying:

I watched. I laughed. What do I do now?”

Imagine getting an email from David Bowie out of the blue, singing your praises and asking your for advice? Probably – “be in my next show.” This led to Bowie having one of the most hilarious guest appearances in modern TV when he sang about Gervais’ Andy Millman being a, “pathetic little fat man that sold his soul” on Extras.
