David Bowie 2648580 1095000 Worldwide Sales estimations li 10m Music Video WIKI: David Robert Jones (born 8 January 1947), known by his stage name David Bowie, is an English musician, singer-songwriter, actor and arranger. Bowie 5m has been a major figure in the world of popular music for over four decades, and is renowned as an innovator, particularly for his work in the 1970s. He is known for his distinctive voice as well as the intellectual depth and eclecticism of his work. Live concerts Bowie first caught the eye and ear of the public in July 1969, when his song "Space Oddity" reached the top five of the UK Singles Chart. After a three-year period of experimentation he re-emerged in 1972 during the glam rock era with the flamboyant, androgynous alter ego Ziggy Stardust, spearheaded by the hit single "Starman" and the album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. Bowie's impact at that time, as described by biographer David Buckley, "challenged the core belief of the rock music of its day" and "created perhaps the biggest cult in popular culture. "[2] The relatively short-lived Ziggy persona proved merely one facet of a career marked by continual reinvention, musical innovation and striking visual presentation. In 1975, Bowie achieved his first major American crossover success with the mumber-one single "Fame" and the hit album Young Americans, which the singer characterised as "plastic soul". The sound constituted a radical shift in style that initially alienated many of his UK devotees. He then confounded the expecta- tions of both his record label and his American audiences by recording the minimalist album Low (1977)the first of three collaborations with Brian Eno over 130 million albums sold worldwide the next two years. These so-called "Berlin Trilogy" albums all reached the UK top five and received lasting critical praise. After uneven commercial success in the late 1970s, Bowie had UK mumber ones with the 1980 single "Ashes to Ashes", its parent album Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps), and "Under Pressure", a 1981 collaboration with Queen. He then reached a new commercial penk in 1983 with Let's Dance, which yielded several hit singles. Throughout the 1990s and 2000s, Bowie contimued to experiment with musical styles, including blue-eyed soul, industrial, adult contemporary, and jungle. He has not toured since the 2003-04 Reality Tour and has not performed live since 2006. Bowie's latest studio album The Next Day was released in March 2013. Appears in 28 movies. He got one tattoo. 24 top ten hits in the UK. bowie LIZA JANE DAVID BOWIE AWIN PEAKS with the lwer third THE LAST DAVIE JONES THE KING-BES THE MAN CAN'T HELP THINKING ABOUT ME ABSOLUTERESMNERS JOMPTATION OF CHRIST WHO FELL Chejnmas TO EARTH TABUDINTH THE PRESTIGE First ever release by David.
