I was in the Capitol last night and noticed the David Bowie/Horniman totem pole picture in the corner. Does anybody know anything about this picture? Is it a genuine DB thing or cobbled together for the pub?
Bowie was from Beckenham I think so I can't think why somebody would think of putting the two together images together.

Anyway, it would look good hanging in my bathroom.

His eyes changed colour after his best friend whacked him on the back of the head when they were kids. Apparently.

My Ex boss worked with him when they were in the same advertising agency. He said he was a really nice guy.

Apparently at school he was punched in the eye by his mate in an arguement over a girl. His mate went on to design some of his early album covers so it seems the girl didn't come between them after all. I wonder what she does now.

sydenhamcentral, was your ex-boss any inspiration for his character in Absolute Beginners?
