One of my first huge crushes in the 80's was David Bowie. Awesome photos. I love the man and his music.

Borg Queen said...

Love David Bowie, thx for the Labyrinth pic

Kristen S. said...

Love! Especially in Labyrinth - thanks for the pic Enty! It's hard to believe he's only 5 years younger than my parents.

RocketQueen said...

Happy birthday, David, and a posthumous happy birthday to the one and only King, Elvis Presley, who would have been 75 today.

There's a great picture of David and Iman on a boat in matching red, white & blue swimsuits. I googled it but can't find it. Such a cool, classy couple.

OT, but here's a recent quote from another rock star that kinda stuck in my craw. Here's Jack White on his Dead Weather bandmate Alison Mosshart's fashion sense in the February British Vogue:

White is similarly adamant about his bandmate's position as a style leader. I wonder how important it is for a rock musician to look the part? "You have to appear to give a damn - not about fashion but about life," White writes. The people who wear pyjamas to the mall couldn't care less about art or anything of even mild interest. Alison is not one of those people."

Am I sensitive, or is that a bit harsh? Full disclosure: I am wearing sweatpants right now. However, I do care about both art and life.

Sylvia said...

I always wondered if Bowie is Bi??

Carissa said...

Sylvia...found this on Wiki...

Bowie confirmed his bisexuality in an interview with Melody Maker in January 1972, a move coinciding with the first shots in his campaign for stardom as Ziggy Stardust.[34] In a 1976 interview with Playboy, Bowie said: "It's true — I am a bisexual. But I can't deny that I've used that fact very well. I suppose it's the best thing that ever happened to me."

Happy Birthday David!! Thanks for the photos Enty!

shakey said...

I have his unauthorized biography. Very interesting read.

My son got an mp3 player for Christmas. I played some songs for him to figure out what he wanted to listen to. When I played Ziggy Stardust, he only had to hear the beginning riff and he yelled out "YES!". He's 8.

Nikki said...

O said...

His hair was fab in Labyrinth....HB DB!!!

Dr. Spaceman said...

Oooops. I accidentally deleted my post or something. I'll try to replicate as best I can.

♥DAVID BOWIE♥

LOVE him. LOVE his music.
Now I love Enty for posting this!

Also, I was going to say that later on I think he said he made up the bi thing to appear more mysterious or something. Not that it really matters either way.

DJ said...

loves it!

I bought my boyfriend in high school a David Bowie 8-track for his car--yes I am that old. He started yelling that he hated David Bowie, why would I do that. I didn't want to tell him because I couldn't stand listening to top-40 any longer.
Once he went through the list of songs, he realized he liked each & every one, but he didn't know who sang them

Little Red Leo said...

Labyrinth ... oh yeah, I def. had a crush on him in that movie.

Love him, love his music, too.

MCH said...

Labyrinth is one of my favorite childhood movies....

Robyn said...

When I was 5 or 6 years old I saw The Labryinth and decided I wanted to grow up and marry David Bowie, 16 years later I can watch the movie again and again and always remember why =)

Majik said...

Bowie was my first concert...I was 17, it was the "Glass Spider" tour, and it was at the old Exhibition in Toronto.

Love. Him.

The Dude Abides said...

My favorite Bowie song
Look Back In Anger

Ground control to Major Tom...I still love this guy.

Caroline said...

Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man! Look at those cavemen go
It's the freakiest show
Take a look at the lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?

Love David Bowie. When I was a child, my older sisters were huge fans. They had me running around the house yelling, Ziggy played guitar!

Kit said...

All hotness, all creative, awesome.

And some of my faves:
- thin white duke (teeth creepy)
- popular 'modern love' image in yellow
- with lovely iman
- the grey suit
- and the retro 20s image in suit/black and white with cig.

Happy birthday, David!

Thanks Enty!

hotchacha said...

David Bowie is my patron saint of art. I wouldn't be doing my goofy job if he hadn't inspired me along the way.

Happy Birthday, you spicy old goat!

ardleigh said...

The man is completely fascinating.
I think he would be an awesome person to sit down and talk to.

Mooshki said...

One of my favorite parts of 'Jennifer's Body' (it's fabulously awful):

"It's a Bowie knife."
"Bowie? Cool!" (Dude obviously thinking he meant David Bowie.)

Christina Penn said...

The often imitated, but never duplicated...David Bowie is awesome. Happy Birthday!

Shannon said...

Love David Bowie! I showed my young neices (6 & 9) Labryinth and the 6 year old became obsessesed with him! My brother was so pissed at me. :)

Reviewer said...

I hope I age as gracefully.

PJ Nelson said...

I could never understand why Peter Jackson didn't cast him as Elrond. But after seeing Hugo Weaving, that was no longer an issue but David is an elf incarnate.

Wil said...

Great Guy! Many happy returns to him!

mngddess said...

My husband taught my son to sing "Rebel Rebel" when he was 3. Especially the part that goes "hot tramp - I love you so!"...

I have it on tape. It's funny.

Love, love David Bowie.

Lisa (original) said...

Happy B-day David!

Ditto ardliegh's comment.

mngddess, I'd love to see that tape :-) btw, who's your avie?

PattyAnn said...

Love the multi-faceted David Bowie. Always watch his duet with Bing Crosby on The Little Drummer Boy over Christmas holiday. Lovely.

john said...

Iman is a seriously beautiful woman...

dbfreak said...

I enjoyed his part in Zoolander, where he was the judge for the "walk-off" between Zoolander and Owen Wilson's character.
