David Bowie released 27 albums in his glittering rockstar career, but how did he climb his way to the top?
Bowie was born David Robert Jones in 1947, between Stockwell and Brixton. His father introduced him to the rock'n'roll of Elvis Presley and Little Richard at the age of nine, and upon hearing 'Tutti Frutti' Bowie claimed that he heard God. In 1962, at the age of 15, Bowie got into a fist fight with friend George Underwood, which left him with a permanently dilated pupil in the left eye. Bowie left school at 16 and his first EP 'Liza Jane', by Davie Jones and the King Bees, was released at 17.
