David Bowie spiraled into an obsessive fear that a crazed fan would off him following the murder of John Lennon, according to an upcoming unauthorized biography. Due in July, "Starman: David Bowie" also explores the Thin White Duke's bisexuality and his band the Spiders from Mars' ties to Scientology. After Lennon's 1980 assassination, Bowie suffered from "visceral, all-encompassing fear," says author Paul Trynka, and "started to rethink every aspect of his relationship with his fans." He even hired an ex-Navy SEAL to guard him and "took a course" on how to deal with stalkers and killers.
