A-list names like Madonna, Ricky Gervais and Kanye West led the mass influx of messages as celebrities took to social media in their droves to share their memories of the idol, thanking him for his unforgettable influence on music.

Gervais, who had just finished hosting the Golden Globes ceremony, wrote that he had "just lost a hero," while West called him "one of my most important inspirations".

Iggy Pop said his friendship with the star was "the light of my life".

David was always an inspiration to me and a true original. He was wonderfully shameless in his work. We had so many good times together. He was my friend, I will never forget him.
