Bowie, David - Rise And Fall Of Ziggy..
David Robert Jones ( London, 8 January 1947 - New York, 10 januari 2016), known by his stage name David Bowie, is an English musician, actor, record producer, and arranger.
A consummate musical chameleon, Bowie has been a folksinger, androgyne, alien, decadent, blue-eyed soul man, art-rocker and a modern pop star, with each persona spawning a new league of imitators. Though he's achieved varying degrees of success is ongoing experimentations and genre hopping, Bowie's place in history is secure: This is a man who did for pretensions what Jimi Hendrix did for electric guitar.
Bowie is widely regarded as an innovator, particularly for his work in the 1970s. He has been cited as an influence by many musicians and is known for his distinctive voice and the intellectual depth of his work.
In the BBC's 2002 poll of the 100 Greatest Britons, Bowie was placed at number 29. Throughout his career, he has sold an estimated 140 million albums. In the UK, he has been awarded nine Platinum album certifications, 11 Gold and eight Silver, and in the US, five Platinum and seven Gold certifications. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked him 39th on their list of the '100 Greatest Artists of All Time', and 23rd on their list of the best singers of all time.
