David Bowie – The Man Who Sold The World


David Bowie was an English singer-songwriter and actor. A leading figure in the music industry, Bowie is regarded as one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. He was acclaimed by critics and musicians, particularly for his innovative work during the 1970s. His career was marked by reinvention and visual presentation, and his music and stagecraft had a significant impact on popular music. During his lifetime, his record sales, estimated at over 100 million records worldwide, made him one of the best-selling music artists of all time. Rolling Stone named him among the greatest artists in history and – after his death – the “greatest rock star ever”. The Man Who Sold the World is his third studio album, released on 4 November 1970. It features the first appearances of guitarist Mick Ronson and drummer Mick Woodmansey on a Bowie record, who would later become famous as members of the Spiders from Mars. The album has been praised by critics for the band’s performance and the unsettling nature of its music and lyrics, being considered by many to be the start of Bowie’s “classic period”.
