The Bowie Phenomenon

I can still remember the first passing comment "Has anybody ever told you, that you look like David Bowie?"

It was during a furniture trade show at the NEC Birmingham August 2003 and it became a constant comment echoed throughout the four day event.

Neither my wife or I could see any resemblance and why now at the age of 45 should total strangers be saying that I looked like an Icon whose career has spanned several decades.

Over the past two years, I have come to terms with the fact that I seem to be daily looking more and more like David.

It has been a life changing experience, I attend some great functions and have had the pleasure to meet some fantastic people along the way.

Not only do I now resemble David in looks but it seems we have the same voice tones when speaking and singing. I have even started to write songs and with the help of Dec Cluskey of The Bachelors may one day even get something in the charts (well here's dreaming).

Although I have always loved Bowies music I never really knew much about the man. With all that was happening I did a bit of research (not hard, just typed in Bowie Biography into a search engine).

Well I could not believe what I was reading Born in Brixton London as was my Grandfather. Next a very quick search on a genealogy web site and discovered that circa 1850 a Mary Spratt married a Jones in Brixton.

Now I'm not saying we are related, but if anyone out there has some time on their hands and would like to search further drop me a line.
