I hope she becomes defender of the artistic legacy. The thought of a We Will Rock You type of thing, a Ziggy played guitar musical would be nauseating . . . .

Papers say it's Opossum Inc.

Corporate Wiki comes up blank. Dun & Bradstreet (D&B) where you would look up a company's financial worthiness before getting involved with them is a similar dead-end. If you check the various stock issuing agencies, another dead-end. Which points to a privately held company, solely financed by Bowie which has now passed to Coco. This could have been for the purposes of tax advantages or who knows what. Since there is intentional zero public disclosure, and they're not trading stock on a market, it's all conjecture on our part.

I don't believe much of this.
Pretty sure he's worth more than 70 million quid too.

A couple points worth bearing in mind:

1. Most of this will be equity tied up in investment or assets - these will be assessed conservatively . (His lawyers won't want to pay more death duties than need be) it won't be cash in the bank. That's stuff is too easy to count...

2. He may well have divested a lot of equity before his death - transferred to his family etc. to avoid death duties etc.

3. £70M is a shed load of money

Don't forget the Tintoretto's. Hirst, Rubens, Lanyon, Howson, Nicholson,

Not an insignificant collection.

There's a private company called possum inc in Brooklyn

No details for opossum inc

Could be a typo.

Trust nobody.

A loose 'o' is perplexing.

Fact checkers at newspapers are a joke mostly

Spoon Music?

An anagram of opossum is:

Spumoso - which is Italian for "frothy or scummy"

Supomos - which is Portugese for "we assume"

.....we're through the looking glass here folks...

They could have at least given a name check instead of just 'Network54'. Mind you, after the behaviour of some posters over the last few days, it could have been worse, a LOT worse!

I wouldn't be surprised if the company has a stake in the future of "Lazarus" (the stage production), either future staging developments, possible movie rights, any music compilations/sound tracks derived, royalties, merchandise, etc.

The historical references of Lazarus may be an analogy to an opossum ... seemingly coming back to life after death.

Circumspection resurrection.

I can image there would be a nice slice of the "Bowie is" pie too.
