Early life of Bowie

music and designing before opting for a professional career in music. He began his career in

Little Richard, Bowie used to play guitar based music at weddings and gatherings.
It was in 1967 when he released his first album titled “David Bowie”. However, Bowie’s name
got famous with the release of his second studio album “Space Oddity” which earned him
appreciations from the public as well as the critics. The rest of the 23 albums were popular
amongst the crowd, thanks to the adapting skills of the musician that helped him produce
music as per the latest fashion and trend.
