"If I'm aspiring to have any career, it's to have one like David Bowie. When I'm in my 50s, I'd love to look half as good as he does, still have a 29-inch waist, a wife that looks as wonderful as Iman and be able to drive around in a Rolls-Royce and still be considered somewhat punk rock."

"I always admired David Bowie on record. I don't sound anything like him but I loved how he could sing so many different ways and sometimes sound nothing like himself! His voice had so many different textures. I think that's really cool."
Stone Temple Pilots by Ian Gittins

" 'STARMAN' by DAVID BOWIE changed my life. I was about 15 and I'd moved out to Southern California. One of my best friends had an older sister with a good record collection. This was at the height of punk rock, and there was a real hardcore scene - but we were listening to Bowie. This was when I first start smoking weed. A friend and I would share a joint and we'd just chill out and listen to this song. I could always picture it being written for children."

"I do love that album. But what fascinates me the most is the 'plastic soul' period, after the raunch 'n' roll of Ziggy. That was a real cool period for me. Young Americans is one of my favourite records."

"I loved his lyrics. What I think is amazing about Bowie is that his lyrics sound poetic but not too intentionally so. The words make sense. It's not overly stream-of-consciousness. And his melodies... you can hear the influence of vaudeville and Tin Pan Alley. You don't hear that a lot in rock'n' roll. That's one of the things that attracted me to him. I tried to pull a bit of that out when I made my solo record."

I was introduced to him by my natural father. My mum and dad split when I was a kid, and I'd spend the summers with my real dad. He was pretty hip. He had a great record collection. I used to listen to his copy of Hunky Dory when I was about 11. I remember really connecting with that record. Then years later when I was a freshman in high school, I rediscovered Bowie. I'd moved out to Southern California. I was about 15 at this point. This was at the height of punk rock, early 80's. There was a real hardcore scene in Southern California. But I was listening to Ziggy Stardust.

Actually my favourite is the Thin White Duke period; post Ziggy Stardust. There was that famous show in Hammersmith, the final show of the Spiders From Mars tour, where he announced that it was all over. Then he moved to LA. That was around the time I believe John Lennon had separated from Yoko and had moved there as well. I think some of the Stones were there also. There was a real drug thing happening in LA at that time.

He went through that period of living on cocaine and milk, and being so paranoid that he wouldn't fly on airplanes; he would travel in the back of a limousine, strung out on coke. He evolved into that authoritarian character, the Thin White Duke. Almost like a fascist icon in a sense. I can really relate to that. You know, you're playing in front of all these people, and your mind's getting twisted by the paranoia from the cocaine.

There are five guys who, if I threw them into a cup I would call that cup the holy grail of rock and roll. They're James Brown, David Bowie, Jim Morrison, Iggy Pop, and Mick Jagger. The only one I haven't met is Bowie. He's probably my greatest icon, not just as a frontman but as a musical artist. He's grown older gracefully, and he continues to raise the bar. He's a style icon. I've always respected the way he takes fashion to the level of an art form. That's something I try to do. Rock-and-roll clothes are fun, but that's just one aspect of my appreciation of clothing and fashion. My meeting with Jim Morrison was on a psychic level while I was high on opium.
