David Wins German Readers Poll 1999

on December 28, 1999

The end-of-year accolades are beginning to pour in, and the current German issue of Rolling Stone magazine (January 2000) has placed Mr Bowie at Number One in their 'Solo Artist Of The Year' section.

The poll also has DB at a healthy No.4 with 'hours...' in 'Album Of The Year', and a magnificent placement of No.2 in 'Single Of The Year' with 'Thursday's Child'!

This particular poll will mean more than many others to David, as it is voted for by the readers themselves, and what impeccable taste they have.

Here are the first five in each relevant category:

SOLO ARTIST:
1. DAVID BOWIE
2. BECK
3. BOB
