Musical Artist - Bowie, David

David Bowie is a British singer and actor, famous for his ever-changing public persona and mutable musical style. Bowie first rose to the public eye in 1969 with the single Space Oddity, and then reappeared a couple years later as Ziggy Stardust with the songs Starman, Changes, and Suffragette City. He soon discarded that persona and released funky material such as Fame. By the time the 1980s rolled around he reinvented himself again with songs such as China Doll, Let's Dance, and Modern Love. Bowie has performed in some notable duets, such as the brilliant Under Pressure, recorded with Queen, the ill-advised Dancing in the Streets, recorded with Mick Jagger, and the oddly compelling Little Drummer Boy, recorded with Bing Crosby.

In addition to his prolific and lengthy musical career, Bowie has been in numerous movies, including notable roles in The Hunger, The Man Who Fell to Earth, and Labyrinth as well as several other films.

Bowie has an official website named David Bowie, and a Facebook fan page.
