In today’s sadness, let’s not get so caught up in listening to David Bowie’s music to forget that he was stupidly handsome, and had great hair. Not only that, but he dressed well and never got fat.
Mostly the hair, though: David Bowie had good hair.

Let’s also not forget two other peculiar BowieFacts
Bowie was greatly influenced by the proverbial Cool Art Teacher at his school, Odell Frampton. Yes, Odell’s son was Peter Frampton, and that is how Peter ended up on some Bowie album in 79 or so–they went way back.
Bowie’s real name was David Jones–he changed it in 1967 so he wouldn’t be confused with the guy in The Monkees. Hey hey, that’s how big The Monkees were (and people say they monkeyed around).

Not only did Peter Frampton appear on an album, but he was the guitar player on Bowie’s big ’87 tour.

Sorry, Frampton played on the 1987 Never Let Me Down lp and Glass Spider tour. 79, 87, it’s all a blur to me now. At the time, Frampon was at a nadir–every Classic Rocker was making big money having reunion tours and playing the sheds, and Frampton and his hair was still an international joke.

And then he lost the hair, anyway.

“Okay, just a quick shot, can you both make your cocainest smiles?”
“Sure, that’ll work.”

Before changing to Bowie, David Jones actually changed his name to Tom Jones. Then “It’s Not Unusual” came out and so another name change was in order.
