Rumors have been spreading about a potential David Bowie/ Placebo performance at the upcoming Brit Awards 1999 (UK annual music awards show scheduled for February 16 - London's Docklands Arena). The rumor was partially started by BowieNet on December 10th and perpetuated by the newspaper "The Sun". The Sun article claims that David and Placebo will be teaming up for a duet, performing T-Rex's classic 20th Century Boy, (a track Placebo contributed to the Velvet Goldmine soundtrack). Placebo was one of the opening band at the Bowie's 50th Birthday Bash, and Bowie has called Placebo's album Without You I'm Nothing one of the best of 1998. As far as the rumor goes, "When we hear more, you'll hear more"!
