Congratulations Mr. Bowie! You made it till your 50th and you are proving that even a rockstar can get older with dignity. Please do not become a pensioner till your 70th! Otherwise my own life misses the heartbeat of your music and performence. A small plot of land and Hallo spaceboy are shinny fresh pearls in a dull rock scene! Alles Gute, Prost und beste Wünsche from Germany Grossfuerst.Alois@t-online.de

I can remember when I was just 13 and saying, "Do you think I'll still like him when he's 'old' and forty". Well, it's been some 23 years since I made that statement and I'm still faithful! And now I'm pushing 40 and that ain't so bad!! So thanks, David, for giving me so many years of joy listening to your music & making so many "Bowie Friends" at your concerts over the years. Happy 50th! ;-)

Alys, Calgary CANADA, (palmer@nucleus.com)
Best Wishes on your 50th David! My god, it's so hard to think of what to say. I remember when I first saw you. I was watching Labyrinth for the first time when I was 7 years old... and I was hooked! You looked good then, and you look even better now. I hope you like my poem. Please come to Calgary on your next tour. Take care, Love Alyssa.
David Bowyer (aussie@ccnet.com)
David, we almost share the same name! When I make bookings at restaurants, I sometimes get a breathless "David WHO?!" when I give my name ... But anyway, thanks for rocking the Shoreline with NIN and the Bridge Benefit, I'll never forget it. You rule, mate ... luvonya! (By the way - do you think they'll discover life on Mars?) BEST WISHES, DAVE (San Francisco resident, Sydney native)

Hi David! You rock my world. I'm 14, and I hadn't heard much of your music until I saw you with Nine Inch Nails last year. Wow, you put on a great show! Now I have some albums and I think you're the best. Outside is an incredible album. I love it! I can't wait to hear Earthling. Well, have a great one and keep up the good work!

NO CONTROL (Maltek, Santiago,Chile) David, I haven't stopped for ages and I doubt I ever will, because I doubt that YOU will! Keep up this 50 years good work and we won't have to die for the fifty more: Happy Birthday! Feymoon Mdsu00b@prodigy.com Happy Birthday! I'm glad my parents submitted me to your music at such an early age. I find your attitude towards many things, I don't know all of your opinions of course, very stimulating and have found myself pondering some of your commets and lyrics. Looking good for 50, in fact looking good for 30, but that's an entirely different story. Well have fun with all that you do and enjoy life to it's fullest.(If you haven't already)=-) Many adorations feymoon

Kris Simon (crisco@mwci.net)
Ever since I purchased Lodger two years ago, I knew that your music would be a great inspiration to myself and my personal music pursuits. Your music spans the spectrum of sound and vision, and I am proud to call myself a fan of David Bowie. Good Luck and have a very Happy Birthday, David!!
A rose with no thorns Happy 50th Birthday David! Thank you for being my inspiration, my fascination, and occasionally my obsession for the past 21 years of my life. Love Always, KARENK Jared Happy Birthday David, I just wanted to let you know that I think you're the coolest, and that I've got many friends down here that agree with me on that. I've been a really big fan since I was little. I grew up listening to you, I thought you were the coolest Muppet in Labyrinth, which was my favorite movie then, and it's still at the top now. Your music rules, and I can't wait for the new album. Thanks, David. Shayne Pozzessere, Miami,FL
Chris Spence 50 years already? My how time falls wanking to the floor when you're writing our lives into music. Here's to fifty more!
Dick Mac (alive!)
You made it (and you just got paid)!!!! I was fourteen when I heard Lady Stardust; it changed my life. I've a red and blue lightning bolt tattooed on my right shoulder. It looks great under a grey business suit. Thank you for the East Coast mini-tour last autumn. You were great in Avalon! And you looked great up close! But I'll bet everyone tells you that! Happy 50th Birthday David! Peace, Dick Mac (alive!) http://www.geocities.com/SunsetStrip/7788

Love from Stephen, UK cookie@bournemouth-net.co.uk
I first became aware of you in 1980 through "Scary Monsters" - I was immediately stunned at your inventiveness and creativity. The following years remain a very special period in my life as I explored your work and became increasingly intrigued about the man behind the music. Today your music, art and life remain an essential part of my life. Thanks for the pleasure you’ve given all your fans throughout your career. (Please tour England soon). Happy Birthday, David.
Sandra Passchier
Half a century alive. Make it a century! And please, keep making those albums like Outside. I can't get enough of it and can't get enough of you. Look forward seeing you on stage. Love, Sandra (Sandra.Passchier@surfnet.nl - gosh, what am I thinking..)
Kai Quale, Oslo, Norway *************** Happy 50th Birthday, David! **************** Thank you for sharing your pain and confusion. Thank you for sharing the soaring days of your life. Thank you for inspiring me, for giving my life direction. Thank you for showing me what human beings CAN be like - mortals with potential of supermen. May the next 50 be as good, or better! Love, Kai
Sarah Packard - Ann Arbor, Michigan
David, I too first fell in love with you after seeing Labyrinth as an 8-year old; you have no idea how much I cherish that glorious film! I have since enjoyed your music, which covers the entire spectrum of human emotions with your own personal flair. May you enjoy the best of birthdays! And come back to Michigan so I can see you in concert!! :) I'd also be honored if you would check out my own Labyrinth site sometime.

Happy 50th David! Thank you for the music that I've been so addicted to over the last twenty years. My favorite concert so far was at the Capitol Ballroom in D.C. last September. My favorite album? Too many to choose from, but Scary Monsters, Station to Station, and Outside would definitely be at the top of the list. Take care and keep writing. Oh, the guys in the picture with me? My friends Tom and Robert, also Bowie fans. Pamela Wright/SoundVsion@AOL.com

I still have them to this day as a centre piece to my collection and still love your music. Keep it up for another 50!! Chaz.

Hello, I wanted to be able to tell you, you are remarkable. I was fortunate to see you at the World Music Theatre in Chicago. I was so upset to see how many young people left that I wrote my Research paper on it. Your so important that you cover my walls. Well, Happy Birthday and best wishes to you and Iman. Jaana from Finland Sorrow was the magic song yeeeears ago.... No sorrow, but joyous and happy life even after your birthday! Having listened to your music for over 22 years now I have to admit it must be something special. - Funny - when having a chance to tell you personally something here makes my words disappear , though I guess you get words enough in this card ;-) So :I'm just sinking in the Quicksand of my thoughts and I don't have the power anymore...
mick pearce Happy 50th Birthday David! Hope you have a great day. Thank you so much for giving us years of exiting music and we hope for many many more. LOADS OF LOVE TAIT & DI.

My, how you changed a 13-year-old's life forever at your concert in Kansas City back in '78. "Heroes" changed us all forever. Your ch-ch-changes have inspired us and now, as a 29-year-old, I wonder at your ingenuity and never-failing artistic inspiration. We love you so much!

Philip Obbard, Boston MA. USA

"You would measure time the measurless and the immeasurable. You would adjust your conduct and even direct the course of your spirit according to hours and seasons." "Yet, the timeless in you is aware of life's timeless, knows that yesterday is but today's memory and tomorrow is today's dream. And that that which sings and contemplates in you is still dwelling within the bounds of that first moment which scattered the stars into space." (The Prophet/Kahlil Gibran)
Saxiphone Hello David, Wish you well on this occasion. Also thank you for the hours of enjoyable and fasinating works that you have contributed over the years.

Happy 50th Birthday David! When I had my birthday you gave me the best birthday present I could ever wish for. It was on July 3rd when you preformed for us Israelis fans - my birthday. It was great. I can't offer you any present that matches the one you gave me, but I greet you to keep on doing what ever is on your mind, whether it's music, painting or acting, and keep making us happy while doing it. Susan Hoover, Houston, Texas Happy Birthday to the only artist whose work occupies 20 slots in my CD case. (Beethoven is second with 10!) I've been a fan since 1982 when some college buddies turned me on to the Eno period works...and those are still my faves. Please visit the third coast of the US on your next tour! - Susan Hoover

Nickolay Kharchenko, Moscow, Russia
Happy 50th birthday, David! I can't find the words to describe the role of your music in my life. I'm only sure that only your words can help me when I'm "sinking in the quicksand of my thought". First time I heard you when I was 14. Now six years later I can't imagine my life without your music. Your performance in Moscow was the happiest moment of my life. Thanks for your great work. Roy Kessels, The Netherlands Happy birthday to U David!! Yesterday I saw the video of 'Little wonder" and I liked it very much :-) !! I hope U to continue making excellent music in the future as you did in the past, and I hope to see you on tour soon (in the Netherlands). Love and greeting, Roy (R.Kessels@student.kun.nl)
Jeffrey Morgan (jmorgan@interlog.com) Toronto A BELATED BIRTHDAY "THANX"-- In 1974, during your Toronto Diamond Dogs show, I gave a crew member a photograph of you and William S. Burroughs which had been signed by Burroughs when I met him earlier in the year. The photo went through 16 cities until you signed it "With Thanx Bowie 74" in Philadelphia. Now it's MY turn to say "With Thanx" for signing it and having it mailed back to me. Love on ya!
Ramsey Harris, Philadelphia, PA
Happy 50th Birthday David! I know of no other artist who has had the ability to continually astound and delight me with every endeavor. For 16 years your music has been an integral part of my life. You have been an inspiration to me to never stand still and to always strive to be my best and most creative. Best of luck and here's to the 50 more! (P.S. If you are ever in need of a good back-up singer...)

Happy 50th B-day Mr. Bowie! I hope it is a great one for you. I have always loved your work since I saw you in Labyrinth. I remember that day when I asked my mother: "Mommy, who is that in the tight pants?" She told me and showed me 2 Lps she had. Ever since then, I have been hooked. I recently got a job so I can afford to buy all of your CDs and a few movies. Keep up the great work and good luck to you in all you do and may God bless you..... Noella Gervais, Toronto Hello and Happy Birthday David. Your music has helped me through some pretty difficult times so I feel comfortable calling you David without the Bowie. Since it is your birthday I think I'll take this opportunity to say you are appreciated. And the most amazing thing is you appreciate back! Take care..."we talked with tall Venusians passing through."
Melanie Fischer Best wishes to you David! Your work has been a great influence on my life. You made me feel special when you winked at me at the DC Ballroom! You are a wonderous being! I am so glad that you are still producing great music and songs and I hope you continue to do so for MANY more years! You mean so much to so many of us! Stay youthful! Keep the hair RED!

Well as my birthday is in a week from now I would like to wish you the very best. How does it feel to be 50? I'll be there in 3 years. No I am not a teenager, but I have enjoyed your music from the start. I used to have a crush on you when I was a teenager. I wish you many more happy and healthy years of music making.

Hi David! Have a great Birthday! mine's on the 15th. We're practically twins! ...uh....maybe not. Anyway, I'm fifteen years old. I love your music. I've been meaning to hear a lot more of it. You're a great inspiration. Also, I loved you in Labyrinth!! I know there were others but that was my favorite! Happy Birthday!
DAJ WISCONSIN Ever since watching you on the Sonny & Cher Show back in 1975, I have been a fan. I look to your work for broadening my thinking, for entertaining me, and for providing a "familiar" voice whenever I am in need of one. Thank you and Happy 50th Birthday David!
Caillean Greywolf
50? Thats impossible, you're young! Sexy, alive, and still sharing some of the best music in the world with your fans. I still can't believe how much energy and talent you posess. Few people on this earth are so blessed, probably because people like you are *so* blessed there isn't any left for the rest of us! Loved you in Labyrinth, and loved the Capital Ballroom show, you were fantastic, as usual. Goddess Bless!

This is a drawing I did called "BowieLove"
I am 12 years old and have been a fan for about two years. I first saw you in Labyrinth and I instantly fell in love with you. I don't have many of your albums (CDs) yet, but I am getting more soon!

DarkWarrior Dear David, Thank you for your inspiration and guidance. As a child I grew up with my father's old LP's of your work. (My dad bought you a Coke once) As a young adult, I find you to be the guiding influence in my own works. Your work was, is, and (I imagine) always will be magnificent. Thank you for everything. Love eternal, Brian "DarkWarrior" Grisaffi (maintainer of ground zero: home of "Sons of the Silent Age")

Happy 50th birthday David! What to say to the person who influenced my life and musical tastes more than any other ?. The first of your albums I heard was "Heroes". Since then I've collected about all of them. I'm sure there'll be plenty more to come. Keep on surprising us all with your originality and ability. Rock on forever !

Happy 50th David! I am a photographer and I can not think of any other individual who has influenced my work more than you have, and I wanted to thank you.

Happy 50th Birthday David! I first encountered your music at the age of 10, and immediately fell in love with your innovation and desire to break the rules. As maintainer of Teenage Wildlife, it's great to see more young fans coming on board even as you approach 30 years in the business. Moreover, thanks for giving me a reason to delay my graduation for another two years! :-)

Hikeeba great one!!!! Happy 50th B-DAY Keep up the incredible work. I have to go sit and axiously await "Earthlings" This Chaos is Killing Me Stephanie Massick All the best, David! I have been a fan for half my life - ever since Labyrinth. I, too, am a Jareth devotee and think your suave portrayal was memorable. Drop a line to labyrinth@hal.com and you'll delight dozens of fans on the Labyrinth mailing list! Your lyrics, voice, and eyes mesmerize . . . at 50, you're forever young.
Nilz It seems that bands today have forgotten how to make beautiful music, real music. You've never forgotten that. Happy birthday. Nilz Edith Bellinghausen, New York City Happy 50th Birthday David! No photo of me...but hey, gotta keep up the mystery, ya know?? Well, here's to an artist who knows the true meaning of the word performer. I loved the Outside tour and was fortunate enough to catch the east coast gigs, too. Maybe someday we'll meet; that's what got me in the music business to begin with! Thanks for the music...keep on doing what you do best - paving your own way.

David- If it wasn't for you.....I would NEVER have: Gone into a "mosh pit"..... Known what it was like to do a five-city tour....... Driven 500 miles through a hurricane to see a concert.... Found out how invaluable scalpers are.... Opened my eyes to new music..... Discovered the internet or Made some great friends..... I could go on, but we're not getting any younger..... Love, Scary Bonster, alias dbfan, "no matter how old I get, YOU'LL be older!" Dan "no clever name or picture" Happy Birthday, Bowie. I have nothing else to say.

Mark "they were blanks" Anderson, Corvallis OR Woohoo for David. You rocked at the Bridge School Benefit (both nights), it was really a treat for my ears. You're the best there ever was, keep it up. I would write more, but my eyeballs are bleeding again. My eyes have never been the same since my contacts were melded to them by that darn X-ray beam.

Happy 50th Birthday David! It's great to see originality and people that are just as strange as I am! FELIZ ANIVERSARIO It all comes back in a flash. It was December 1973. I was about to turn 13. I asked for David Bowie's latest album as a birthday present and I got "Aladdin Sane". That's when it all started. On behalf of all your Brazilian fans... FELIZ ANIVERSARIO!!! Emilio
ScorpPoet Happy 50th Birthday David! David Bowie is God! All my best to you and your family. Keep the music coming (videos too). You're still super sexy. Labyrinth forever, dearest Jareth.

Two great things happened in 1969... Man of Words/Man of Music was born and I was born. Oh, and that man walking on the moon thing... I have adored your music since I got my first album Diamond Dogs I wish you many happy years to come. And why wasn't Life On Mars played when they launched that new probe to Mars? Just a thought.... Happy Birthday! :-)

Nicole Wasinger - Love ya! I first saw you on FNVideos when "Let's Dance" was pit against "Hungry like the Wolf". No contest. The world blanked out as I focused on the screen. I was 14. You and your work impacted my life greatly. Being a Bowie fan is a special club and the internet has brought us all closer together. Happy Birthday, David! Be true to yourself and your true fans will always be true to you. "As long as you're still smiling..." Nicole Wasinger Nicolee, Australia. See you in the front row! To the only singer / performer / actor / hunk I've ever truly adored: Thankyou for your wonderful music, it gets me through every day; I couldn't imagine my life without it. Please confirm these rumours and come down to Australia! I swear it would make my life! Enjoy your birthday, spend it doing whatever you love best!

Happy Birthday David.


Angie, Melbourne, Australia!
Dear Mr Bowie, I’m writing this to you… You made me love you, I didn’t want to do it, I didn’t want to do it. You made me love you, and all the time you knew it, especially when I saw you in Labyrinth. You made me happy, even when I saw you dancing with those goblins! You know you made me love you! HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVID! May you always be the inspirational and great artist that you are. AYAKO MORITA Happy 50th Birthday David! I'm happy to send you a birthday greeting! How wonderful this page is!
Juuso, FINLAND Happy 50th Birthday David! I would like to thank you for your songs, they are something that gives me energy and keeps me awake in this boring world. I hope that you will come to Finland again soon! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Vikki Otero, Houston, TX
Hey David! I was entranced when I was 8 years old and heard my sister playing one of your albums. I don't remember which one it was and it doesn't matter, because I have been an unstoppable fan ever since. Thanks for the 13 years of great music you've given me. You've made my life better. Music just doesn't get any better than yours. Happy Birthday!
A fan forever,
Vikki
Terri Saunders Happy 50th Birthday David! Having been a fan of yours for more than 14 years, I have grown up with your music in my head and heart. You have been a great influence in my life and I know you will continue to do so for many years to come. I hope your 50th birthday is your happiest yet, and you have 50 more to come! I love you! Toby Germano TGermano@webtv.net Happy 50th Birthday David! Thank you for giving me many years of artistic pleasure. I'm so happy for you. You seem genuinely happy with your life. Your beautiful relationship with your wife, and recent original and exciting music have been inspirational. I can't wait for upcoming releases. Your performance at the Bridge Show blew my mind. Here's wishing you many more birthdays. Love, Toby Germano
LittleWonder/Kelly (kellym@ipass.net) Wishing a very happy 50th to the rock-art icon-god I fell in love with when I was seven, and who's changed my outlook on life (and my musical preferences!) ... It's almost pointless wishing you success, since things get better with age ;-) , but I do wish you happiness (I know this sounds corny, but bear with me). Thank you so much for all you've done for me -- for all of us. Love you very much, forever and always-- Sara C. in MT Happy 50th Birthday David! You have helped me through many hard times. Thank you. I love you. Labyrinth will always be my favorite movie, and Space Oddity, Fame, and The Man Who Sold The World are tied for my favorite songs. (catlady@tmcom.com)
Swiss Cheese, Cornell Uni, NY David, so the story goes, happy birthday. In a world of imitators, you are an innovator. I first saw you on 'Top of the Pops' way back when, but now realize your music is much more than just that. What other musician has been influenced by such extremes as Bertolt Brecht and the Who? You are the most interesting person I’ve ever learned about and would some day like to meet you. You never know. Best wishes, Alice Zerfowski Happy 50th Birthday David! We hope that you 50th birth won't be a block to resist you from keeping on. My Boyfriend and I went to your concert in Rotterdam in the Netherlands last July. And it was GREAT!!!! We both hope you'll give another concert in the Netherlands (maybe because of you new album) By the way what's your own e-mail address? hehehehe Greetings to your wife and Hope to hear and see you soon

This is a picture of me, Eddie the Bear.
Do whatever you like, so long as it makes your 50th a festive one. I think you're only improving with age--I love the recent records and you were a hoot as Warhol. I don't have much new to add so I'll echo the earlier sentiments. Only come closer to Des Moines the next time you tour, and say hi to Iggy for me. (Write for a laugh, if you like.) John McElhenny Happy 50th Birthday David! I just wanted to wish the best musician ever a happy 50th birthday. I hope that you continue to write new music and tour for a long time. Happy Birthday!!
ALICIA KRAMER UNITED STATES Happy 50th Birthday David! I do not wish to be with you as some of your fans, I aspire to be like you. You are an extremely talented person. Through your several forms of expression, especially music, you have changed our world for the better. Please continue, I can not wait to experience what the next 50 years will bring.

Happy 50th Birthday DADDY!!! Sorry, just trying to catch your attention. ;) Word limit (Evan!) and too much to say. You'll never know how you've changed my life, but I do and I'LL ALWAYS LOVE YOU for being there for me whenever I need you. You melt away all my madness/sadness and give me reasons to believe. Mother saw Ziggy in 1972. You still scare her, but I did a little in utero happy dance of joy. And when you sing/say my name...oh David...

"This one hangs on my fridge." -Mark (USA) Happy 50th Birthday Mr.Jones! Uh, I mean, Mr.Bowie. If your eyes ever do set upon these words, let them say to you how much I enjoy your music, and the messages you've sent with all those notes and rythms and sounds you've come up with since becoming David Bowie around 1966: the year I was born! Yes! You are a "Rock God" to many and may you continue to be for many, many years to come. Yours, Mark Corbie Crystal - Vancouver, Canada ********************Happy Birthday!********************* Dear Mr.Bowie, Although I find it greatly impossible that I will get a response from you personally, one thinks: it is worth a shot. Now then, to the message. It will be short and brief for anything else would be better left to private conversation. I wish to thank you for the imaginitive ride through your music and thoughts. It has been both thought provoking and a pleasure. Sincerely, Crystal (aka: CrystalJapan) crystalc@iceonline.com

Hey David. Congratulations on your birthday, and thank you for expanding my horizons. I used to only like punk, but through your music I have learned to love jazz, blues, classical, experimental, and many other of the wonderful forms of music in the world. Here's to another 30+ years of your always fresh, original, and creative new music.

Carlos Quinteiro, Brazil
Hi, David!! Here's a Brazilian family that likes you a lot!! Dad Carlos is the President of the familiar fan club, Mom Sonia wants to see you alive, and Mabel and little Daniel had listened to your music all the time (they don't have alternative!!!). Congratulations for your birthday!! You're the Number One!!! Jason Harshman Maryland,USA Happy 50th Birthday David!

Hello David.This is a drawing of me laying on Syd Barrett's knee(I heard you liked Syd too).Though I'm sure the admiration of your work has been covered by many others here,I'll just say that I've loved you since I saw Labyrinth when I was eight.I hope we cross paths one day in an art gallery or when you read the Great American Novel I'm going to write one day.Best wishes and much love. Fabio Frighetto, Rome, Italy Happy 50th Birthday David!

All my best! nirmike@axionet.com Happy 50th Birthday David! All the best, David! I look forward to hearing more stuff from you at 60! I enjoy your work especially Outside and 'Bewlay Brothers' I wanted to send you a picture of one of my paintings. No means. My husband is rather upset at the fact that I am so'enamoured' with you. Only because he's a better musician than you: HE says. HIGH NOON at the OK Coral. You should take him up on it! Put out or shut up! With respect Nirmal Gerow
Margot Grouse, Sydney, Australia
In 1978 I lived near the Sydney Showground. Late one night, I lay awake with a pillow over my head. Thunk Thunk Thunk. I prayed you'd shut up. How could I have known my big sister would soon be bringing home a record filled with rollicking pop songs, a record that would... RUIN MY LIFE! From Puccini to Pearl Jam, the greatest songsters are those who occasionally generate pieces with an epic quality. Your back catalogue overflows with such creations!

Skele-David
Happy 50th Birthday Mr. Bowie! You look great! Love, Steven Barritz
Egil Rian, Norway
Happy 50th Birthday David! I haven't been a fan for more than a couple of years, but ever since I got hold of the Aladdin Sane album, I just had to get more and more of your music. It's amazing that you are still going strong after so many years in the business. Keep up the good work! I Hope to see you in Oslo again, the sooner the better! Many regards from Egil Rian, Norway.
Joao Lucas-BRAZIL-Rio de Janeiro Happy 50th Birthday David! Here's from a 22 year fan(since 1972/73).From Brazil. I will say something that maybe can get him(or you ,if DB reads this)proud,him being fundamentally a child from the sixties: I admire and follow with no restrictions only three artists: The Beatles ,The Stones and DB. All I want for him is to BE HAPPY and to keep daring(but never dare to quit making music). Happy birthday Joao jlucas@iis.com.br Edwin and Ria Dodde, Groningen, the Netherlands Happy 50th Birthday David! Keep the good work going!! Live long and prosper. Edwin and Ria from Holland

Happy 50th Birthday David! I really don't know where to begin. Your music, and career, has had such an impact on my life. I look foward to all your future endeavors, and may we all be blessed by having you around another 50+ years. From the very bottom of my heart, and depths of my soul-I Love You, and Happy Birthday! Thanks for the kiss, I'll remember that day for the rest of my life.
Evan Long, Toronto Canada
Yeah, as if I'm going to be able to come up with less than 80 words with which I am to send a birthday greeting to one of my biggest heroes. I could plan this letter for years and never get it just right. Mister Bowie, have a happy 50th birthday, thank-you so much for all your music, and here's looking forwards to 50 more years (I'm greedy)! Humbly, Your fan from Toronto, Evan Long. Man - what a sucky letter.

Jessica N.
Well, a happy-wacky b-day to the coolest (not to mention most beautiful) man in the world. I regret that I've no picture to send you, but you'd know me if you saw me. Je vous adore! ]_zero\/3 zero]\[ Y/-\, Jessica N.

David Tiburcio
Dear David, just trying to write something short and interesting is quite hard, so I just wanna say that my name's David too and I like your music (Fav.: Hunky Dory, Heroes, Scary, Black tie) and I wish you a very Happy Birthday!!!
Mike Hughes Happy 50th Birthday David! Without you life would be dull, music would have rotted into the wastelands and not too many boys would wear makeup. The music you've made and are continuing to make is great! Hope the next 50 are as good for you too! And I guess Andy Warhol was wrong about everyone having their 15 minutes of fame! You've had at least 25!!

Happy Birthday David!

It was one sunday afternoon back in ´72 when I had to join my parents for a visit at my grandmother´s. Being 15 with nothing to read, nothing to say I was allowed to turn on the radio. There it was: Hazy cosmic jive. Ever since I´ve been an admirer of your work and you´ve always been an inspiration to me.

Thank you for everything, keep on paddling your own canoe - I´m happy, hope you´re happy too.

KEVIN MORRISON; NEVER TO BE REMOVED Well, here we are for brief moment. You have given me endless decibles and colorful canvases to blow down any closed doors there could've been. my only regret is that I haven't had the chance to return the favor, But there is still plenty of time. Anyway, Bon anniversaire Mon ami. Keep Listening and recording with care. I'm sure you would'nt have any other way--Later Brother
Aimee, New Jersey, USA (monkee430@aol.com)
I've tried to come up with something really clever and memorable to say, but... everything seemed either too trite or too pretentious. So, here it is...have a lovely 50th birthday! Stay as ageless and mysterious and wonderful as you've always been! You've been my favourite for as long as I can remember - I don't expect that will ever change! I look forward to another 50 years of your music, art,....and everything else you create. Lots of love, aims (monkee430@aol.com)

greg stephens CA, USA
Hey David! Are the rumors true? Are there no more free steps to Heaven? Is it because you've used the all yourself? Well, that's OK, then. For making such music as you have, as much music as you have, you certainly deserve them! Celebrate! Paint a song, sing a picture! Whatever-- just have a Very Happy Birthday! Arild Eriksen Happy 50th Birthday David! We look forward to another 50 years of jawdropping music!!!(Never quit Tin Machine!!!!!)
Pepijn and Marijn Dave, happy 50 from the Netherlands. Hoping you will keep visting our country on a regular basis, as you did last year. Your show in Utrecht was great, but you outperformed yourself in Rotterdam. Glad to see you (still) enjoy performing that much. Jennifer (Anomie@Juno.com) Lincoln NE A very happy birthday wish to one half of the greatest couple on earth. Your dedication, devotion and self-respect have inspired me to remain true to myself and my goals. I only wish I could express the sincerity and strength of my respect for you and your work. As I am probably not going to have the chance of communicating in a way that could reach you again, I would also like to wish you a good millennium.

You look great for 50.Ziggy changed my life, NOT! Strangers...Meet is my fave and I think I'll cover it at every concert(once my band gets underway). I Believe that listening to your music makes kids smarter.That is what's wrong with public education.Sheesh,I learned a lot about sex! I looked up libido in the dictionary after listening to All the Madmen at 12.

I just wanted to say that I was 9 when you changed my life forever! I used to watch this kooky video show hosted by Richard Blade back in '82 or '83 & like many of those older than me at the time, I'd always wait for "China Girl"! Now I'm 22 & I've had a chance to really explore all your wonderful masterpieces. INSPIRATION... Can't Wait For "Earthling"!
Robin Shannon, London ON,Canada Happy Birthday David! Like a fine wine you keep getting better with age. I've been a fan for the past twelve years; since being introduced to your music at the impressionable age of 13 by a friend's older,cooler brother. I just want to thank you for adding a soundtrack to my life. Best wishes on your 50th, and I hope the next 50 are as productive as the first.
SherryeLyn
Yassassin, David! My artwork consists of a T-shirt I painted with ballpoint paints in 1976, photographed and "giftwrapped" with last year's Christmas paper. From the first time I saw you at the Tower with the Spiders in 1973, I realized I was the recipient of a tremendous gift. I've since attempted to relay the gift to others, through vision, dance, lyric, dream and ritual. Happy Birthday Hugs (Forever and Ever)

Biff Jones
Happy 50th Birthday David! I saw the interview you did on the TV and you came across as a decent bloke! Please check out my band The Phobics soon to be available through j-birdrecords.com I think you will like us. Best wishes for the future. Biff and The Phobics uri d to david bowie. you might have sold the world but you have also given this little world of ours a chance to meet your own great world of sound and vision. thanks for the original, powerful and great songs. happy birthday. uri dotan israel

Don Becker, sans feature...errr, picture.

Happy 50th David!

As a child of the 80's I sat in awe at "Ashes To Ashes". 16 years later, I'm still in awe that one man can produce such a diverse catalogue of material for so long without becoming a parody of himself.

Your music led me to explore other artists, and I owe my appreciation for The Beatles, Roxy Music, and Brian Eno to you.

Can't wait to hear what you've got in store for us on Earthlings.

--Don Becker

Happy 50th Birthday! On my 16th birthday, a ticket to see u in concert for the "Serious Moonlight" tour was my birthday present! And 14 yrs. later, I can honestly say, that u have inspired me so. Not only musicaly, but the fascination for u hasn't worn off. As long as u have someone such as myself that finds u quite fascinating; may the fascination of the fascination himself live forever! W/ much love, Stephanie Bruna ... "I'm happy, hope you're happy too"
Claudia Raven de'Lioncourt Rothschild Loves YOU Happy 50th Birthday David! Dear David, I think you're the greatest, don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Keep on performing, and I look forward to your next album. Love always, Claudia Grant Mandarino I have just started to enjoy your music. I like most of your old stuff the best, but I find myself really liking most of anything you have written. I have just recieved "The Man Who Fell To Earth", and I found that it was really rather boring. I would like to know what you personally thought about it. I hope that you are open to questions. Have a good birthday !

Will Cullen

I wish you and your family the best. Happy Birthday, Will. Maise from SC Happy, happy birthday David! I hope this one is the best for you yet. Remember we all love you!

Hope to meet you some day, or at least to see you perform in Sweden again! Love from Christer in Sweden LEGO11 in GA stu5232@westga.edu Tis another day in the life of the great David Bowie. I'm sure that you feel much different now that you have officially turned another year older. Time is artificial, my unknown friend. Sort of like the artificial colors and flavors that make life so interesting. Everyone likes sweet-tarts. Why is time our enemy? O.K. Enough. May this be another year to remember, if it suits your fancy.

Just a few days from Epiphany, your birthday is a holiday to me. I treasure that baseball you signed. Too much? "Only God, my dear could love you for yourself alone." (And I believe He does laugh at your jokes.) Happy birthday, David!

Happy Birthday! You know, people say that we look very similar. Oh, who am I kidding? This is actually a picture of you. I thought maybe I could fool you if I darkened it a little. Admit it, you were fooled. David, thank you for everything, and thank you in advance for every future project. Always remember -- you'll always have the fan support, no matter what direction you wish to travel. Best of luck, and don't forget to have fun!!

Belated Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

Harry Williams: Melbourne, Australia
Remembering the good laugh we had over the Australia-Paris satellite link (around Tin Machine II time) about Reeves and his vibrator-induced solo technique, I can still recall the excitement of talking to you in person… At 34, I still get excited everytime I come across new tour news, albums or interviews. Thanks for doing what you do best, (writing and singing,) and for staying away from Graphic Design (for the most part…) That gives me something to do!
Robot Monster, Suburbia, Anywhere USA
Birthday greetings. I'm busting up my brains for the words, you understand. Underneath this rough exterior and mass of circuitry lay a simple beast in love with your music. I can still recall each time the needle hit another fresh slab of vinyl containing your work that my allowance could afford. Thanks for inspiring countless fits of giggling and snickering over the past ten years. Bring back Vic!
Deon Filmer Hey David - Happy 50th! Thanks for the years filled with great tunes, I'm looking forward to many more! Boys keep Swinging Happy 50th Birthday David! May this milestone in life bring you happiness and joy! Paul c/o njhomes@ix.netcom.com

Elizabeth A. Allen the concupiscent creator What can I say that will be different from everyone else's message?

I don't obsess on you but on a character you played, Jareth. I have a
web page with Labyrinth fiction on it among other stuff. I could listen to you sing anything, I've always loved the sound of your voice. I love Outside and Hunky Dory. You look a lot like my father's side of the family, which always made me feel I knew you a bit. Happy 50th, maybe I'll get your 60th birthday message up before your birthday.

Josie Jones, Philadelphia
Happy Birthday David! I admire your sense of style and innovative nature. You are a true artist, Mr. Bowie, and as a fellow musician, I aspire to be all that you are. Here's to fifty more years!

Happy Birthday David, from your two biggest fans down-under. Hope you get to tour Australia early next year so we can offer our best wishes in person. You were in Australia during your 40th year. So it's only fitting that you come on down again for your 50th.See you then.Love always.Julie and Bruce. P.S.Maybe we can have a "Fosters" together again. Charlie Sutherland Congratulations, David! Happy 50th, and I hope your new projects are all going well. Your music has taught me a lot and if you are ever in need of a good keyboard player, I'd love to help out. Again, happy birthday and I'm looking forward to "Earthling" and whatever follows!

Guy Polak Happy BD DB! Hope you enjoy the day and continue to pump out the music well into your next half century. Take care and I can hardly wait for the new CD. Antonio Morey David,it's great to be inside the Teenage Wildlife. But nothing compares to knowing your career and whatever came out of it. I truly think you are not from this Earth. I saw you in Brazil in 1990, but this was just a small part of you when I remember of "Space Odity", "The Jean genie", Labyrinth sound track, and works like "Black tie..." and "Outside" albums. I just love you and whatever you do. Happy birthday! Long live the King Bowie!
Richard Guerin Happy 50th Birthday David! Dear David; Briefly, I flew from Edmonton, Canada to New York for the famous celebration and got stranded at the Toronto airport due to a storm. We arrived to the show directly from the airport. I sadly missed evreything but the last half of "Jean Genie" and "Space Oddity". A dissapointment I'm not over yet. Happy Birthday David.

Years ago, fallen angel into hands received. Cannot imagine, cannot feel, hurt, desire, need, cry a tear so hard, so hard. I explode into everything and 2 inches away you do not connect the chain, yet eye to eye I was given everything. Greet me when the stars dance above my head. Thank you for helping me find directions I didn't know existed. Thank you for being the inspiration. Happy Birthday, see you next visit. Lucas Merino Pedro Llobell Happy 50th Birthday David! I just hope that you have a happy life from now on, enjoying everithing that sorrounds you, from your family to us, your fans and, of course, your present and future works. Best wishes Pedro Llobell

David; I imagine I've met you, had intimate conversations with the sun. Felt you heat and squinted at your brightness. That I've touched the flame and did not burn. I've seen the hero look in your eyes, haunted with fear yet drenching me with seduction. I stray into different realms of your immortality and am comforted by the thought. As I hope you are. To you I bestow my greatest compliment. Mr. Bowie you inspire me to be creative. Thanks, MS.

David, I'm overwhelmed and have spent hours (days, weeks) agonizing over this message. I just want to thank you for the way you've changed my life and say: "Happy 50th Birthday!" I love you more than you'll ever know, you inspire, intrigue, and make me think (smile, cry...) with your music!:-) I hope this card lets you know how really important you are to all of us (or at least gives you a few laughs!!) ALL MY LOVE, SARA

In the early 70's I used to listen to a local radio station called "Stereo X". They played a lot of your music, "Space Oddity", "Changes", "Ziggy Stardust" and more. Your music struck a chord within me that resonates to this day. You are now 50 years young, creating music that continues to challenge the senses, music that is vital, relevant, innovative and stimulating. Thanks for being true to yourself and loyal to your long time fans. Happy Birthday David!
