David Bowie is a British musician and actor. He constantly reinvents himself musically, though the height of his popularity occurred throughout the 1970s and the early 1980s. One of his musical alter-egos was the androgynous alien love messiah, "Ziggy Stardust." He has also been affiliated with several bands and acts, including Tin Machine, The Riot Squad (no relation to the Leader's group of gamma mutates), and The Hype.
Several biographies have been written about Bowie, most notably The Man Who Sold The World: David Bowie and the 1970s by Peter Doggett, Mark Spitz's David Bowie: A Biography, and David Bowie: Living on the Brink by George Tremlett. His life was also the focus of Rock N' Roll Comics #56 - David Bowie. As an actor, David Bowie has not limited himself to a specific genre, and has appeared in Labyrinth (which was adapted by Marvel Comics), The Man Who Fell to Earth, Zoolander, and The Prestige, among other films. As well as being included in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Bowie was inducted into the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame in June, 2013.
In his personal life, Bowie is married to the model Iman, and was once rumored to have had sexual contact with Rolling Stones' frontman, Mick Jagger. His son, Duncan, is a film director.
