This Day in History - David Bowie

Speaking of me listening to music, ...

From HistoryChannel.com:
1975 David Bowie's first chart-topper

David Bowie scores his first No. 1 hit with 'Fame,' from his album Young Americans.

Bowie, born David Jones, attended high school in London but dropped out to play music with a series of bands. He became interested in theater and art movements in the mid 1960s, studying mime and Japanese Kabuki theater. He formed his own mime company while recording several albums. His first album, The World of David Bowie, was released in 1967. Like his next few albums, it presented Bowie as a singer-songwriter.
Good lord. That long ago?
