David Bowie

Dissatisfied with his stage name as Davy (and Davie) Jones, which in the mid-1960s invited confusion with Davy Jones of the Monkees , Bowie renamed himself after the 19th-century American pioneer James Bowie and the knife he had popularised . [21] His April 1967 solo single, " The Laughing Gnome ", using speeded-up thus high-pitched vocals, failed to chart. Released six weeks later, his album debut, David Bowie , an amalgam of pop, psychedelia , and music hall , met the same fate. It was his last release for two years. [22]

In over fifty years from his very first recordings right through to his last album Blackstar, David Bowie was at the vanguard of contemporary culture as a musician, artist, icon and a constant influence on generations of writers, artists and designers. He was, and remains to be, a unique presence in contemporary culture.
