    LONDON: David Bowie dominated the weekly British charts out Friday (Saturday in Manila), commanding a quarter of the top 40 albums as mourning fans rushed to buy his music. The Londoner, who died from cancer aged 69 on Sunday, had 19 albums in the top 100 and 13 entries in the top 100 singles, ranging from songs dating from the 1960s to tracks off his new album. Bowie released his new album “Blackstar” last Friday, which was already heading to number one before he died. Nine other Bowie albums were in the top 40, ranging from compilations to classics like “Hunky Dory” and “Ziggy Stardust”.
