The career of David Bowie isn’t one that you’d describe as linear. The man was a shapeshifter, an artist’s artist. At one point he was cutting his teeth in musical theater, and then, in the span of a few short years, he’s the figurehead of glam rock music worldwide. He featured in films, Broadway productions, dabbled in painting, produced for other artists, and on top of that, he found time to change the direction of music with his groundbreaking albums in the ‘70s and ‘80s. Not bad for a life and career, all told. And it’s that creative restlessness, that desire to explore the outer limits of one’s artistic capabilities that lend itself to all sorts of interesting anecdotes and trivia.
