David Robert Jones (later David Bowie) was born on January 8, 1947, in Brixton, London, the son of Margaret Mary Pegi, an Irish woman who worked as a cashier in a movie theater, and Hayward Stanton John Jones, an Englishman of English nationality who was a clerk in the personnel department of a charity. It would later be discovered that David was born on the same day as his idol Elvis Presley, exactly 12 years after him. Both musicians were Capricorns by zodiac sign, and according to Chinese astrology their patron saint was the Boar.
At the time of their son's birth, David's parents lived in a common-law marriage, and only eight months later they legalized their relationship. From an early age the future rock musician showed his interest in music, and in preparatory school established himself as a talented, goal-oriented and intelligent boy. At the same time, he was a rather naughty child with a cocky temper, which did not prevent him from getting high grades in school.
In 1953 David Bowie's family moved to Bromley, where he entered Burnt Ash Primary School. During his high school years, he began studying music, attending choir and music circle, where teachers noted his phenomenal ability to interpret. After the first time he heard the compositions of Elvis Presley, David decided he had to become a pop star. He persuaded his father to buy him a ukulele and built his own bass so he could participate in skill sessions with his friends. His passion for music had a negative impact on his grades at school, as a result, Bowie failed his final exam and went to technical college.
In college, the future rock star discovered modern jazz and became obsessed with the idea of becoming a saxophonist. Then he had to work part-time as a longshoreman at the local butcher shop to buy his first pink plastic selmer saxophone, and a year later his mother gave David a white alto saxophone for Christmas.
At the age of 15, Bowie had an unfortunate accident when he got into a fight with a friend in college and suffered a serious injury to his left eye. The musician spent the next four months in hospital, where doctors performed a series of operations to prevent him from going blind. Alas, they were unable to fully restore his vision, as a result of which the singer has partially lost the perception of color, and the eye after the transformation began to see everything in brown. In addition, for the rest of his life the musician remained with signs of heterochromia, the color of the iris of the injured eye remained darker.
By college graduation, the future rock music legend could play many musical instruments, which included guitar, saxophone, keyboards, harpsichord, electric guitar, vibraphone, ukulele, harmonica, piano, koto and percussion. Given that the singer was left-handed from birth, he uses musical instruments as a right-handed person and plays right-handed guitar.
