If you've listened to David Bowie's final album Blackstar (or, as it's properly written, "★"), you know that Bowie tries on one last persona in the vein of the Thin White Duke or Ziggy Stardust: a mysterious, cult-like figure called "Blackstar," from which the album takes its name. This morning, music journalist Michael Azerrad found an unlikely possible source for this name: cancerous lesions. It's another piece of evidence that Bowie intended his most recent album as a good-bye.
