Shortly after members of the musical community — including his former bandmates — commemorated what would have been David Bowie‘s 70th birthday with the first date on an all-star tribute tour, the one-year anniversary of his death was marked with a series of social media tributes.

The online honors from Bowie’s peers were led by a flurry of tweets from his friends and collaborators. The members of Queen took to Twitter to mark the anniversary of his death, posting the video for a 1999 remix of their collaborative single “Under Pressure.”

Def Leppard also paid tribute with a tweet calling attention to singer Joe Elliott’s cover of “All the Young Dudes” at a tribute concert.

And Bowie’s official site paid tribute by sharing an animation featuring all of Bowie’s studio albums.

Worthy tributes, all — but unsurprisingly, the most touching of the bunch came from members of Bowie’s family. His son, filmmaker Duncan Jones, posted a simple tweet telling followers how much Bowie’s missed by those he left behind.

For Bowie’s wife Iman, meanwhile, the anniversary of Bowie’s passing proved a particularly bittersweet milestone — and one she shared with followers by posting a picture of a double rainbow over the New York City skyline, taken on Jan. 10, 2016, and affixed with a series of hashtags that concluded with #BowieForever.
