ago, he'd kept it private. in l.a., new york and london, fans are in shock paying tribute and grieving. >> i just loved his music. i loved him. >> reporter: he was born david jones, and took the stage name "bowie," because the davey jones of the monkees got there first. his first big hit -- "space oddity." this is ground control to major tom >> reporter: inspired by the apollo space program. influenced by andy warhol, bowie came up with the concept for ziggy stardust, a rock band from outer space. that other worldly, androgynous look, positioning him as the outsider. now ziggy played guitar >> i felt really comfortable going on stage as somebody else. and it seemed a rational decision to keep on doing that. ch-ch-changes >> reporter: like his anthem
hard to pin down. his image and his music constantly changing. that chameleon persona in turn inspired generations of performers from kiss to kanye to lady gaga. madonna posted, "david bowie changed the course of my life forever." fame >> reporter: bowie co-wrote "fame" with john lennon. and "under pressure" with freddie mercury of queen. pressure >> reporter: mick jagger tweeted this picture, calling bowie "an inspiration and a true original." his final album, number 26, released just last week. while bowie was fighting his mysterious illness. look up here i'm in heaven >> reporter: this song, "lazarus," in retrospect sounds like good-bye. the song now rising up the charts after bowie is gone.

tv show? >> "millionaire." >> forget being a millionaire, kendis. just put that out of your mind. the real question is, who wants to be a billionaire. >> we all do. yeah, i think. as the powerball jackpot creeps higher, there are indications that even if you do win it all, you might want to be careful about what you wish for. abc's lauren lyster has the story. >> your winning powerball numbers. >> reporter: the powerball grand prize climbs to $1.4 billion monday after no one matched all six numbers to score saturday's $949 million prize. there were some million dollar winners though. someone in massachusetts. >> hopefully it's one of our
