To bad I though of him after "B" had come and gone.
Everybody has heard of David Bowie, unless they've been living under a rock for the past few decades. In the event you haven't heard of him, you have definitely heard his music (it's everywhere) or have seen him in a film.
The man's a genius, constantly evolving himself through the years. He never seems to stay the same for long, which is why I'm always surprised to "discover" he did a certain song I've listened to for ages on the radio, or played a certain role in a movie.
I'm fairly new to the Bowie fanclub. Labyrinth was my gate way drug just a few years back. However I'm fairly certain that had I been a teenager during his early years of success my room would have been plastered with his posters.
