Happy Birthday, David Bowie!

David Bowie shares a birthday with Elvis Presley. He was born January 8, 1947, which means he is turning 69 years old. It’s been an eventful life so far, and he’s done something substantial every year of it. You can find out exactly what at the generator What Did Bowie Do At Your Age? Just enter your age (or any number) and see what he did that year. I entered my age and was a little shocked.
When David Bowie was 57

He got struck in the eye by a lollipop during a gig in Oslo, Norway. The lollipop was lodged there until removed by a member of his crew. David Bowie continued with the show.
Yes, there’s a picture, but I took the high road and went with a photograph of Bowie at age 15 in 1962 instead. Check out many of his years if you like -they're quite interesting. (via Metafilter)
