It was 53 years ago this very day that a seconds old David Robert Jones first exercised the lungs that would make him a Globe-Straddling Rock God, and while that particular moment was not recorded for posterity, (as far as we know at least) the event was reported by CELEBRATION! magazine here in the UK.
We have reproduced the front of this priceless publication from the only copy known to survive, stumbled upon in a dusty old junk shop in South London by our super-sleuth Total Blam Blam. What do you mean it's most likely a fake then?

I'm sure every single member of BowieNet will join us in wishing David a very special birthday and wewould like to take this opportunity to show our gratitude to the man for letting us share in his work overthe last 35 years. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVID and much love from everybody at BowieNet.
