who is david bowie?

Quirky and characteristic- an amalgamation of pop and music hall




Creator of the "Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Long-Haired Men"



"It's time we were united and stood up for our curls" - David Bowie 1965.



A dramatic arts student who performed in avant-garde theater, and mimed.



Major Tom - an astronaut who slips through the barriers of the material world and finds himself beyond the stars



An androgynous "man who saved the world"



Ziggy Stardust- an out-of-this-world alien figure masqueraded as a human attempting to warn the world of it's end. Ziggy Stardust was presented as the epitome of a rock star, and the rock star lifestyle- immersed in an excess of drugs and sex.



Proto-punk pioneer in "Diamond Dogs"




The cabaret-esque and cocaine fueled Thin White Duke



Or, Neoclassicist Bowie- collaborating with The Polyphonic Spree, Television and The Arcade Fire.



I'm not sure which. But he is pure genius and the pioneer of many genres and scenes. And I really would like these Proenza Schouler boots in my wardrobe...

I particularly like this second post. I yearn to acquire more knowledge on this Bowie fellow. You must teach me more about his man named David.
