Wootton Talks Musical Movie Legends: DAVID BOWIE: Iconoclastic Genius All Ages
Renowned for his experimentation and distinct visual presentation, multi-awarded English songwriter, rock star, performer, fashion icon, and stage and screen actor David Bowie (1947–2016) was one of the most influential artists of the last century, pioneering glam rock with his flamboyant androgynous alter ego Ziggy Stardust.
Among the world’s best-selling music artists, with global record sales of 140 million, Bowie was also an accomplished actor (who, prior to success as a musician, studied avant-garde theatre and mime), whose memorable films included The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976), Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence (1983), Labyrinth (1986), The Last Temptation of Christ (1988) and The Prestige (2006).
Wootton discusses the dazzling career and complex life of the iconoclastic Bowie, who was widely hailed as the Picasso of Pop and a Master of Reinvention.
