David Bowie at 60

Almost impossible to believe but the Thin White Duke will be 60 on Jan. 8th 2007.

60? Wow. Seriously, David Bowie stands as one of the most incredible and terribly underrated artists of the past 40 years. The man's a living legend, and he's still putting out amazing work. What a guy.

Britain doesn't have very many great solo artists but he's up there with the best of all time. Legend. Can't believe he's nearly 60.

He's making great music again after some late 80s/early 90s weirdness. Woo woo!

Seriously, though, as far as solo artists he's right up there with Elvis Costello as my favourite wordsmith.

he's great... and thou I don't know much of his music... Live Aid HEROES and the Freddie Mercury Tribute UNDER PRESSURE are probably the best I've seen of a solo performance EVER

Wow, David Bowie's 60?

I really ought to listen to more Bowie. For a time there a few years ago I was all about him.

I don't know if I'd call him underrated

Can't believe he is 60.

I think it just means everyone, as a whole, is getting older.

I bought his best of album the other day and can't stop listening to it

I've always loved his music (and yes even Labrynth) it's great to see him plugging along and still looking good at 60

Yeah, have to agree with the "Heroes" performance at LiveAid, Pepo, definetly the best version I've ever heard of that song.
