David Bowie: Down-to-earth Starman.

What qualities do you bring to the party?

My hard-won ability to know when to go home.

Tell us about the best party you've ever been to.

For the Sultan of Solo's birthday. Nine of his daughters played flutes and danced for us as rain seeped through the grand, but dilapidated, roof of his 12th-century palace.

Can you recommend a top non-alcoholic beverage?

I live on Starbucks' French Roast coffee.
