David Bowie 1947 – 2016
David Robert Jones, better known as David Bowie, was a singer, songwriter and actor. He was renowned as a leading figure of innovative and popular music from his first album in 1967 until his death in 2016. In a fight over a girl, he was punched in the eye resulting in an injury that left him with a fully dilated pupil giving the false impression of a change of colour in the iris. This was later to become one of Bowie’s most recognisable features.
