If you could ask Bowie any question?  

What would it be?

My questions are rather stupid but I've always wanted to know:

1. What does he see image wise when he looks out of his right eye only?

2. If shows like Pop Idol, American Idol and X Factor were invented in the 60's when he was trying to "make it"....would he have auditioned?

Bowie would have auditioned for every one of those shows if he could when he was starting out. He'd answer yes to that. Not sure about the other question though.

Presumably normally, considering that's his undamaged eye.

But talking of the left eye, he "has stated that although he can see with his injured eye, his colour vision was mostly lost and a brownish tone is constantly present." (Ta Wikipedia). Presumably his vision through that eye is also very blurry in normal light, as the pupil cannot adjust to differences in lighting levels.

At some Australian gigs, Bowie joked with heavy handed irony that he could see something as small as a badge on a person in the far back rows. I do recall an interview maybe from the early 90s where he said that beyond a certain distance, his vision of the audience is very much a blur.

Which would suggest he simply needs glasses.

Well, he played in that Maltese song festival in 1969.

It's LABRYNTH, idiot!

Handsome is more important than vision. No glasses please. No contact lenses, either. It's the only way to be sure.

Also, on topic: "Would you like to suck me off again?"

I've ponder this question for years. I probably end up asking him how long the 1972 remake of Holy Holy goes on after the fade out.
