David Bowie

David Bowie (born David Robert Jones) was an English singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, arranger, painter, and actor. Bowie had been an influential figure in popular music for over four decades, and was renowned as an innovator, particularly for his work in the 1970s. He was known for his distinctive baritone voice as well as the eclecticism and intellectual ambition of his work. His androgynous appearance was an iconic element of his image, particularly in the 1970s and 1980s.

Bowie first came to the attention of the public in July 1969 when his song Space Oddity reached the top five of the UK Singles Chart. In the 1970s he was known as a highly innovative and revolutionary artist, and he released a number of very successful albums and singles. In 1983 he reached a new commercial peak with his album Let’s Dance, produced by Nile Rodgers of Chic fame. Bowie is considered to have been one of the most influential artists of all times. He has 4 songs and 5 albums in the Rolling Stone Magazine’s Top 500 lists.
