Punk and New Wave Musicians Before They Were Famous.

Punk and New Wave Musicians Before They Were Famous.

This one is such a dead giveaway, even from his school photograph above, that I’m not even going to bother spinning it out.

But just in case you can’t tell from the above, this next photo of the guy, aged eight, will surely give it away:

And again, in 1967:

And the answer is of course, the late and much-lamented musical genius David Bowie. A real loss to the world of music, but someone who touched millions of people across decades of innovative musical output.

His music and the strong personal influence it had on the journey described, are frequently mentioned in my Punk and New Wave Memoir, Bombed Out!
