BowieNet is pleased to announce our new partnership with barnesandnoble.com. In the coming weeks, David will select books of his choice and write a review. The reviews will range in topics from art, music, history, culture and more.
As David's first book review, he picked the timely new release - Glam!: Bowie, Bolan, and the Glitter Rock Revolution by Barney Hoskyns. David has been approached by many media sources to get his "take" on that peroid of cultural history and now our members will be the first to read his exclusive review! Look for the posting next week in "What's New".
The Embassy of the Democratic Republic of Congo (formally known as Zaire) has officially denied the creation of the Bowie Stamp. Democratic Republic of Congo officials state that "no new stamps have been issued in the last 18 months since the revolution." (Ed. note: Any new stamp issued by the Democratic Republic of Congo would not be issued in the name of Zaire).
The stamp was found up for auction on the e-bay site. (Sorry, Bidding is closed for this item).

Legends "David Bowie"
VH-1 will be re-running David Bowie's 'LEGENDS' show on December 10th at 9:00 PM EST as part of their 'Legends' Week - December 7-11.
(Profile) From cult stardom in the 1970s to superstar status in the 1980s and 1990s, David Bowie established an enduring name for himself as a musician and artist.
As predicted by Bowie in his journal entry from October 29th, 1998, painter Chris Ofili has won this years prestigious Turner Prize.
Bowies' sometime producer, co-producer and long time friend, Tony Visconti is releasing his enigmatic 'Inventory ' C.D. at long last. Says Tony: "Inventory is a 13 track album recorded around the time of Bowie's Heroes, in 1977. I used many production techniques from that period so you will detect a sonic similarity. Just before I mastered it Bowie and Iggy Pop listened to it and gave me sage advice about which tracks should stay on and which shouldn't. The total running time of this CD is over 70 minutes!"
Two delightful surprises are songs that Mick Ronson played guitar on and were never
