A Legend at 65: David Bowie

Break out the champagne, start baking a cake, and dust off your stereo speakers, (yea the real ones) because today you’re throwing a birthday party.  Its January 8th, which means its time to celebrate the birth of the great one– the Thin White Duke, Ziggy Stardust, Major Tom, The Alien, Aladdin Sane, the Elephant Man, the Goblin King, the Heathen, the Earthling, the Man Who Fell to Earth, Halloween Jack– David Bowie celebrates 65 years on the planet today.

Post some love in the comments below– your favorite persona, song, moment or link.

Here are some photos of the many personas he’s had over the years, and of course, we’ll be playing not one, but two playlists in celebration. You can find our first playlist on this page after the photos or on the front page of our site.

Also check out the Daily Mirror for 65 Facts and Bizarre Myths and a 65 Image Slideshow of the many personas of David Bowie including early photos.
