What a voice and what style he had! Oh, I feel so sad frown This story from Ricky Gervais put a smile on my face though:
Quote:
A few years later I emailed David on his 57th birthday. It read: 57???? Isnt it about time you got a proper job? Ricky Gervais, 42, Comedian. He replied: I have a proper job. David Bowie, 57, Rock God.
