Bowie, David

Bowie, David

David Bowie is a British rock musician and actor. He is commonly known as a chameleon of popular music, predicting trends and adjusting his style and persona, while holding on to his own ideas and creativity. He first rose to prominence with the heady, 1969 folk rock single "Space Oddity" but is perhaps best known for the flamboyant, androgynous glam rock of 1971's Hunky Dory and 1972's The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. Subsequent albums have explored blue-eyed soul, electronica and new wave, often predating these genres' popularity or even the point at which they were defined as genres.
