Happy Birthday Bowie

Today, Sunday 8th January, the legendary David Bowie turns 65. This year also marks 40 years since Bowie unleashed iconic alter ego Ziggy Stardust and the influential album of the same name. Later that year Bowie performed 'Starman' on Top of the Pops, launching The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars to the top of the charts where he would return many times throughout his career.

'I've got to think of myself as the luckiest guy. Robert Johnson only had one album's worth of work as his legacy. That's all that life allowed him.' - David Bowie

BBC Radio 6 will mark Bowie's birthday by playing his records, concerts and radio sessions throughout the day. Bowie's decade-spanning career, from Ziggy to the modern man is also celebrated in his new collaboration with Sukita, SPEED OF LIFE, as well as previous Genesis limited editions FROM STATION TO STATION and MOONAGE DAYDREAM.
