was an English singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, arranger, painter and actor.

His androgynousappearance was an iconic element of his image, principally in the 1970s and 1980s.
Born and raised in Brixton, south London, Bowie developed an early interest in music although his attempts to succeed as a pop star during much of the 1960s were frustrated
