David Bowie's 65 birthday: 65 crazy facts and bizarre myths
By Paul Cockerton 8/01/2012

1 First things first - how do you pronounce David Bowie's name? It is 'Bowie' to rhyme with 'Joey', rather than as if it were similar to the acronym for The Only Way is Essex, TOWIE.

2 Did Bowie help start the credit crunch? BBC journalist Evan Davis suggests he may have had a role. In 1997, Bowie sold bonds on his future back catalogue royalties, an idea which was copied by the banks who sold on mortgage income. This ‘securitisation’ was partly responsible for the problems banks developed in the late Noughties.

3 Bowie says he was moonwalking years before Michael Jackson wowed the world in 1983's Billie Jean. He wrote on his official website that choreographer Toni Basil taught him a type of moonwalk for his 1974 Diamond Dogs tour.

4 Bowie was interviewed on a BBC programme as the founder of The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Long-haired Men at the age of 17. He complained: "It's not nice when people call you darling and that".

5 Bowie shares his birthday with Elvis Presley, who was exactly 12 years older. In her book, Stardust, Angie Bowie writes David Bowie could do a “devastating” impersonation of Elvis Presley. And Elvis once considered recording a cover version of Bowie’s 1976 hit, Golden Years.

6 Bowie's first ever release was Liza Jane/Louie Louie Go Home in June 1964, under the name of Davie Jones with The King-Bees.

7 Born David Robert Jones in Brixton, London in 1947, he changed his name to avoid the similarity with Davy Jones from The Monkees. Due to the similar-sounding name, a popular misconception is that Bowie was actually in The Monkees.

8 Bowie got just one O Level - in art. He still draws, paints and sculpts with his favourite artists listed as Picasso, Michael Ray Charles, Tintoretto and Erich Heckel.

9 Many young boys in the 1970s and 1980s grew up wanting to be Bowie – and so did girls. Queen of Shops Mary Portas said Bowie was her hero as a child and she dressed up as Ziggy Stardust aged 12.

10 Blue-eyed boy Bowie's left pupil is permanently dilated thanks to a punch thrown by friend George Underwood at school over a girl. His thumbnail dug into Bowie's eye, which now appears either brown or blue depending on the light.

11 The fictional Major Tom has appeared in three of Bowie's hits: 'Space Oddity' in 1969, 'Ashes To Ashes' in 1980 and 'Hallo Spaceboy' in 1996.

12 Rock guitarist Peter Frampton was Bowie's friend at school and he has played guitar with Bowie many times during his career.

13 Bowie released his debut album, called 'David Bowie', in 1967 after playing in pub and club bands.

14 The Laughing Gnome - regarded by many as Bowie's worst song - was the most requested track by fans when invited to make phone votes to select songs for him to perform on the 1990 world tour - although he didn't play it.

15 His first hit in the UK was 'Space Oddity' in 1969 and - aptly enough - was used by the BBC for the coverage of the moon landing.
'
16 Nicolas Roeg cast Bowie in his first lead role in 1976, as a stranded alien, in The Man Who Fell to Earth.

17 His first number one in the United States was Fame, in 1975. Co-written by John Lennon, it features the late Beatle on backing vocals.

18 Bowie wrote the soundtrack for the BBC dramatisation of Hanish Kureishi's novel, 'Buddha Of Suburbia'.

19 On album 'Diamond Dogs', Bowie plays pretty much every instrument, including the guitar riff on 'Rebel Rebel'.

20 Bowie was ahead of the pack when the internet started to take off. In 1997 Bowie made single 'Telling Lies' available for release only on the internet. He launched Bowienet, his own ISP, a year later.

21 Bowie made a special guest appearance on the SpongeBob SquarePants episode Atlantis SquarePantis as the Lord Royal Highness in Atlantis SquarePantis on November 12, 2007.

22 Bowie formed his own mime troupe in 1969 called Turquoise, later to change their name to Feathers.

23 Bowie appeared as Pontius Pilate in Martin Scorsese's The Last Temptation of Christ.

24 In contrast, in the 1986 movie Labyrinth, Bowie plays Jareth The Goblin King.

25 Bowie married supermodel Iman in 1992. In fact they married twice - at a registry office

26 Bowie's hit 'Ziggy Stardust' is about Vince Taylor, proto-punk and frontman for The Playboys.

27 A version of 'Space Oddity' was recorded in Italian titled 'Ragazzo Solo, Ragazza Solo' which translated means 'Lonely Boy, Lonely Girl'.

28 Chart rivals Roxy Music were miffed when Bowie copied their catsuit look on stage - so they ‘stole’ his trusty lighting engineer.

29 Bowie's duet with Bing Crosby of 'The Little Drummer Boy', recorded for Christmas 1977 and a hit five years later, was Crosby's last ever single.

30 A letter that Bowie sent to Young American Sandra Adams in 1967, thanking her for sending his first fanmail from across the Atlantic, was unearthed in 2010.

31 It’s nothing new for bands to be pelted by missiles during gigs, but the projectile usually takes the form of a beer cup of water bottle. Not so during a gig by Bowie in Norway in 2004 when he was hit in the eye by a lollipop while onstage. The gig was stopped while Bowie received medical attention.

32 Actor and musician Scarlett Johansson said: "I learned I was a sexual being through David Bowie's songs.”




33 Lost Top of the Pops footage of The Jean Genie from 1973, regarded as the 'holy grail' by Starman's fans, was found in a dusty box by a former cameraman on the show last year. It had been wiped by the BBC and assumed to be gone forever.

34 'The Man Who Sold The World' has been covered by Nirvana and Lulu.

35 Bowie proposed to Iman in Paris while on a boat cruise on the Seine while it was passing under the Pont Neuf.

36 His favourite aftershaves are Minotaure by Paloma Picasso and anything by Guerlain.

37 David Bowie has been immortalised in stone to celebrate turning 65. Artist Ed Chapman, 40, created this tile mosaic of the Starman in time for his milestone birthday. Ed, who lives in Manchester, has previously made of a portrait of Lord Sugar out of sugarcubes and Jimi Hendrix from 5,000 plectrums.




38 Bowie declined the CBE in 2000 and a knighthood in 2003. He said: "I would never have any intention of accepting anything like that. I seriously don't know what it's for. It's not what I spent my life working for."

39 He was the star of an episode in the second series of Ricky Gervais, where he makes up a song ridiculing Gervais' character Andy Millman.

40 Bowie grew up in Bromley, London, but his family hail from Doncaster in South Yorkshire and Tunbridge Wells, Kent.

41 Rumour has it that Bing Crosby did not know who Bowie was before they recorded their Little Drummer Boy duet, but Bing's son recommended him.

42 29-year-old Bowie was arrested for cannabis possession in Rochester, New York in 1976.

43 Wife Iman has a Bowie knife tattooed on her ankle as well as the name 'David' in Arabic writing.

44 Estimates of Bowie's wealth range from £100m to £500m.

45 Other pseudonyms Bowie has used over the years include Aladdin Sane, the Thin White Duke, Tao Jones, Halloween Jack and John Merrick.

46 His Glastonbury performance in 2000 is regarded by fans as one of the greatest Glasto shows of all time. And in a poll of who festival fans want to headline Glastonbury when it returns next year, Bowie was number one choice.

47 A new spider species discovered in Malaysia in 2009 was called Heteropoda Davidbowie.

48 Guitarist Mick Ronson's work with David Bowie is sometimes credited as being the 'birthpoint of heavy metal'.

49 The video for Ashes to Ashes was voted the 27th greatest music video of all time in a poll by Channel 4.

50 When recording the Magic Dance song for the Labyrinth soundtrack, the baby wouldn’t provide the necessary coos and giggles so David Bowie did it himself.

51 His mum Peggy was a waitress and his dad John worked for Barnardo's.

52 A pupil at Stockwell Infants School in south London, he had a reputation for 'defiance and brawling'.

53 Bowie began playing the piano at the age of ten and played the ukelele and tea-chest bass in skiffle seesions with mates.

54 He met first wife Angela Barnett in 1969 - they married within a year.

55 The song 'Kooks' on 1971 album 'Hunky Dory' was written for his son Zowie.

56 Now know better as Duncan Jones, he is an award-winning director responsible for science fiction-techno-thriller 2011 flick Source Code.

57 'Diamond DOgs' was planned to be a musical version of George orwell's 1984.

58 In 1980, Bowie did a three-month run on Broadway in The Elephant Man.

59 He turned down the chance to play baddie Max Zorin in James Bond film 'A View To A Kill' - a role that was performed by Christopher Walken.

60 In 1992, he played FBI agent Phillip Jeffries in 'Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me'.

61 He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996.

62 He and Iman appeared as characters in 1999 game Omikron - for which he provided the soundtrack.

63 Bowie suffered an acutely blocked artery that required emergency heart surgery in 2004 and went into semi-retirement.

64 Rolling Stone magazine declared him 39th on the list of the 100 Greatest Artists Of All Time.

65 Bowie was awarded the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2006.

Cover Story Excerpt: David Bowie
David Bowie made rock & roll safe for glitter gods and space oddities - but he was really trying to hold on to his sanity.


By Mikal Gilmore
January 18, 2012 8:00 AM ET

The following is an excerpt of the David Bowie cover story in the February 2nd, 2012 issue of Rolling Stone, on stands January 19th.

"Ziggy Stardust" beleaguered Bowie for a long time. It became what he thought he had to live down, or surpass. He hoped he could relinquish the character yet hold on to the growing audience that the image had won for him. But Aladdin Sane and Diamond Dogs were essentially continuations: The music got deeper, riskier, more complicated, meaner; the viewpoint, more toxic. But it was still the world and character of Ziggy Stardust.

In 1974, Bowie launched an elaborate tour of North America. This time, musicians were relegated behind a screen, unseen, as Bowie commanded the stage with brilliant choreography and cumbersome props, such as a cherry-picker crane that malfunctioned once, leaving him suspended far above an arena floor for many minutes. His singing was, if anything, better – he had astonishing range and control – but he grew bored with the tour midway through. He wanted to revise his sound, to make it soulful and funky. He brought in guitarist Carlos Alomar, who had worked at Harlem's Apollo Theater and had played with James Brown, and he recruited Luther Vandross to arrange backing vocals. He met John Lennon, and the two wrote and recorded "Fame," for Bowie's 1975 Young Americans. The song and album were Bowie's first massive hits in the U.S. Bowie also developed an obsession with cocaine during this period, and it took him into frenzy, delusion and terror. He lived for a time in a Manhattan town house, but after a tense conflict there one night with Jimmy Page, Bowie believed that the Led Zeppelin guitarist – who owned the English home of late black-magic philosopher Aleister Crowley – had put his soul in peril. He moved to Los Angeles and continued to disintegrate, staying up for days without sleep, sustaining himself on a diet of milk, peppers and cocaine, studying occult literature and practices. He phoned Angela in London, asking for her help: Witches intended for him to impregnate one during Walpurgis Night. He later said Satan was living in his indoor swimming pool. David needed an exorcism ("I really walked into other worlds," he later said), and Angela got him one – though it was by way of a long-distance phone call. "David was never insane," Angela wrote. "The really crazy stuff coincided precisely with his ingestion of enormous amounts of cocaine, alcohol and whatever other drugs." In any event, the rite may have helped break Bowie's fear of a fiend possessing him. "It was time to get out of this terrible lifestyle I'd put myself into, and get healthy," he later said. "It was time to pull myself together."

David Bowie Trivia: How Well Do You Know Your Bowie?

In late 1976, following a suggestion by writer Christopher Isherwood, Bowie moved to West Berlin, with his friend Iggy Pop. For a time the retreat only relocated Bowie's troubles. He became a heavy drinker. He threw up in alleys at night. He reportedly called out to people, "Please help me." He also did worse: He became intrigued by Third Reich history and Nazi mythology. He had said years earlier in an interview, "I believe very strongly in fascism." In 1974 he told Playboy, "Adolf Hitler was one of the first rock stars. Look at some of the films and see how he moved. I think he was quite as good as Jagger." In Strange Fascination, Buckley reports that customs officers detained Bowie at the Russian-Polish border in April 1976, and seized a collection of Nazi memorabilia. When an assistant later criticized him for his interest, Bowie grew infuriated. "Fuck you," he said. "I changed the world! Kiss my arse" – then broke down and cried. The worst moment came in 1976, when Bowie arrived in an open-top Mercedes-Benz convertible at London's Victoria Station and was photographed giving what some people wrongly thought was a Nazi salute. The reaction in England was furious. Bowie was sickened when he saw the photo. "I'm NOT a fascist...," he told Melody Maker in October 1977. "That didn't happen... I just WAVED... On the life of my child, I waved." The longer Bowie stayed in Berlin, the more he came to understand the ruin that fascism had done to Germany and Europe. He was repelled by nationalists and racists, and was horrified to see his name made into a swastika in graffiti. He later called his interests "ghastly," and said he had been coming out of a year of terrible duress. "I was out of my mind, totally, completely crazed."

Lost David Bowie Footage Uncovered

Yet Bowie still made exceptional music in the post-Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars years. The title track of Station to Station (1976) sounded like a battle for the soul between a locked-down, authoritarian structure and raging, anarchic guitars. With 1977's Low – recorded with the input of avant-gardist and former Roxy Music keyboardist Brian Eno – Bowie devised a new language of music from fragments, accidents and dreamed-up textures. At first Bowie's label, RCA, did not want to release Low; however, along with Heroes from that same year, the album went on to inspire a generation – or more – of new artists, from Joy Division to Trent Reznor, and proved Bowie's most sonically influential work.

To read the rest of this cover story, pick up the February 2nd, 2012 issue of Rolling Stone, on stands and in Rolling Stone All Access January 20th.

Thu 2 Feb 2012   23:00   BBC Radio 2.


Johnnie Walkers Long-Players...

In the first of five programmes, Johnnie Walker looks at some favourite classic albums. This week it's David Bowie's Hunky Dory and the follow up to Ziggy Stardust - 'Aladdin Sane'.

Both produced by Ken Scott (with help from Bowie as the 'actor' on 'Hunky Dory' and arrangements by Mick Ronson on 'Aladdin Sane') at the legendary Trident Studios during 1971 & 1972, 'Hunky Dory' was the first album to feature the subsequent Spiders From Mars line up and 'Aladdin Sane' followed the breakthrough 'Ziggy Stardust' album and fitted between legs of the famous tour.

Very much a fan favourite, the first album combines the huge hits 'Changes' and 'Life On Mars' with cult classics like 'Kooks' and 'The Bewlay Brothers' and pays sideways tribute to heroes like Bob Dylan, Andy Warhol and the Velvet Underground.

'Aladdin Sane' is a tougher sound with 'Drive In Saturday', 'Panic in Detroit', a cover of 'Let's Spend The Night Together' and 'The Jean Genie' being the stand out tracks.

The programme will feature highlights of the albums, with comment and cultural history from Johnnie and broadcaster and critic David Hepworth alongside archive interviews with many of the key players.

Se passerait-il enfin quelque chose sur Bnet ?!

Il semblerait que les 40 ans de Ziggy soient célébrés tout au long de l'année 2012 !
...en commençant par le concert du 29 janvier 1972 au Friars Club d'Aylesbury :

Une production du Pac Mons-Borinage en collaboration avec Classic 21 et le Mundaneum

Fusionnant deux passions, le rock et la photo, Paul Coerten a promené ses objectifs pendant près de 20 ans dans tous les concerts et festivals. Le gigantisme des shows, des groupes qui faisaient salles et stades combles, un public d'une totale ferveur... Oui, c'était une période de rêve.

Doué, marrant et toujours à l'affut, Paul Coerten s'est très vite forgé une solide réputation parmi les ténors de l'image. En plus de 300 photos d'une force incroyable réunies dans ce livre de grand format, retour sur ces moments magiques: l'âge d'or du rock, quand Queen, Genesis, Led Zeppelin, Clash, Blondie, Pink Floyd et tant d'autres artistes secouaient les foules.

Paul Coerten a été publié par des magazines cultes comme "Melody Maker", "New York Rocker" et, en Belgique, son pays, "Télé Moustique" et "Humo". Reconnaissance suprême, il appose sa griffe sur quelques pochettes de disques qui feront le tour du monde: Ted Nugent - album "Scratch Fever" -, Patti Smith...

Les photographies de Paul Coerten feront d'ailleurs l'objet d'une campagne d'affichage pour la chaîne Classic 21 dans les prochains mois.

Catalogue en vente au Mundaneum au prix de 30 euros.

Le bouquin Golden Years de Paul Coerten est sorti en 2004 chez Apach.
Un superbe témoignage en noir et blanc sur le rock des années 70 et 80.
Mon frangin me l'avait offert à l'occasion d'un Noël ou d'un anniversaire, je ne sais plus !
Merci Stéph !
