"Forget that I'm 50, cause you just got paid"
Show me the birthday card!
January 8 1997
The first virtual fan club birthday card on the net
January 8, 1997 was David Bowie's 50th birthday! To celebrate this occasion, Teenage Wildlife put together a virtual birthday card for registered users. This card can still be seen here in virtual form , and a printed copy was sent to David in time for his 50th birthday. The birthday greetings were later featured live at David's 50th Birthday Benefit Bash at Madison Square Garden, January 9, 1997

Sorry, we are no longer accepting any new birthday greetings. Maybe for David's 60th ;)
