David Bowie - Happy 65th Birthday Sunday 08 January

Alex Petridis's Guardian piece:

David Bowie: myth-maker turns 65 away from limelight
Quote:
It's a cliche when a rock star reaches 65 to mention the time when it didn't look like they'd make pensionable age, but with David Bowie who marks the milestone on Sunday, it's almost unavoidable. Look at a picture of him in the mid-70s, when he was ravaged by cocaine, living off a diet of red peppers and milk and so paranoid that he apparently kept his own urine in a fridge lest persons unknown steal it: this is not a man destined to make old bones.

Bowie is an artist in every sense of the word. I adore him and his view of the world.

From today's Daily Mirror:
Quote:
Desperate to knock Mick Jagger off his pedestal as Britain’s Baddest Bad Boy at the time, Bowie declared archly: “I think Jagger would be astounded and amazed if he realised that to many people he is not a sex symbol but a mother image.” Miaow.
