DAVID BOWIE SIXTY SEVEN
David Bowie turns 67 today, gang! This morning we barely scratched the surface of his career. I mean, where do you start, let alone stop? And last year he put out a GREAT freakin' album after a decade long absence. How does he do it? He's DAVID FREAKIN' BOWIE.
Here's a great documentary that we've posted before, but it's a good way to spend an hour of your life. It's a BBC Documentary called Cracked Actor that follows Bowie on tour across the U.S. This is his emaciated coke fiend period, and it's kind of haunting to see him like that. The performances are stellar, though, and this is the only place where footage from this tour exists.
