David Bowie Estate Planning

The world lost one of it’s most brilliant artists back in January with the death of David Robert Jones (aka, David Bowie, Ziggy Stardust, the Thin White Duke).  His artistic reach included not only music, but also film, fashion, and glam culture.  Naturally, as a fan of music and estate planning, I wondered what the Thin White Duke had planned for his estate.  This article from the New York Times discusses, among other things, his bequest of $2 million to his longtime personal assistant, and his instructions that his body be shipped to Bali, that he be cremated pursuant to Buddhist rituals, and that his ashes be spread there.  Farewell, Ziggy.
