David Bowie FAQ:Personal Life:|
Having failed the 11-plus, Bowie studied art and graphic design in the Bromley
Technical School. Traditionally, non-academic teenagers attended Technical
Schools in England at this time. He left school in 1963 with just one O-level
pass, in Art.
Owen Frampton was his Art teacher. Owen's son, Peter Frampton, who was studying
in the same school, and is three years younger than David, was a member in the
band that played behind him in the Glass Spider tour (1987). They used to sing
Sons Of The Silent Age as a duet.
