    Who He Is To Me...

    I loved him since the age of 16, and that was 1981...I bought every photo-biography I could find and drank them in, but the first show of his I was old enough to see and travel to was The Serious Moonlight Tour in '83, which incidentally marked the beginning of the Bowie period...

    Only True Bowie Fan Out Of My Friends.

    The only ones who "like" Bowie are the ones who have never heard the songs but wanna look "different." They're truly missing out. I'm known as the David Bowie girl in my school. He marvels and inspires me and he changed my life. People may think I'm strange at school but who...

    Bowie is one artist who never stops growing. His music is always up to date and edgy. He's not stuck in even his own past. You've got to love that bout the guy. He's not afraid to take chances.

    Can't go wrong with loving David Bowie, that's for sure! His music is timeless, his look is ultra-sexy. While I'm not one of those women that constantly pants over celebrities, I can't help but love him and his music.

    I'm currently reading a good biography of David Bowie. It's simply titled: Bowie by Marc Spittz. It seems pretty well researched, and the guy was a fan.
