David Bowie’s music and attitude were unique, making millions worldwide. However, there is still a question left unresolved about Bowie; was he a vegetarian?
Bowie was never a vegetarian, as he loved to eat all kinds of meat. One of his favorite dishes was the English breakfast, which includes bacon, blood sausage, and eggs.
It’s hard to be completely sure about Bowie’s diet, as he was known for being an unpredictable person. But something we know for sure about Bowie was his talent in music.
Food Parlors In His Honor
David Bowie is an inspiration for thousands of people, including gourmet vegan chefs. There’s a vegan restaurant in Seattle named after David Bowie’s song Life on Mars.
This vegan restaurant is also a bar, which makes it the perfect place to grab a drink and enjoy good music.
One of the main highlights of Life on Mars is its delicious local beers. If you want to enjoy a healthy meal and listen to some glam rock, then head out to Life on Mars.
Talking about Bowie’s music career isn’t an easy task; the singer had one of the craziest lives a rockstar can have. Bowie was a pioneer and helped create glam rock as we know it today.
Bowie’s music career started in the early 60s with his band, the Konrads. After leaving the Konrads, he quickly tried to find a new band, though; the Konrads weren’t taking their music careers as seriously as Bowie.
Yet again, Bowie and his new band didn’t last long. He then decided to launch his career as a solo artist, which didn’t work at the beginning either.
It wasn’t until the release of “Space Oddity” that Bowie reached his long-awaited fame. “Space Oddity” shows us a new persona played by him, as it was common for the artist to create characters in his work.
Bowie’s third album was yet another success, reaching top sales across the UK. This album featured a more feminine-looking Bowie; he even started wearing dresses.
But Bowie became the legend we know when he released his album “Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars.” The album featured a new character, this time named Ziggy Stardust.
Ziggy Stardust became one of Bowie’s favorite alter egos, as he often played him offstage. After the enormous success of the Ziggy persona in the UK, Bowie moved to America.
In America, Bowie started experimenting with Funk and soul music. He found new inspiration in his new home in Los Angeles, releasing his unique album called Diamond Dogs.
Ziggy wouldn’t be the last persona Bowie created, as he made characters for his upcoming albums. In “Station to Station,” Bowie created an interesting character named Thin White Duke.
Bowie loved to play new characters and enjoyed the freedom that the stage had to offer. This love for playing characters made Bowie interested in becoming an actor.
One of Bowie’s favorite characters on the big screen was Jareth from the movie “Labyrinth.” Bowie’s acting skills in “Labyrinth” made the movie gain popularity, making it a cult film.
Labyrinth wouldn’t be Bowie’s last cult film, as the movie “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me” had the same impact.
Bowie’s last role as an actor was in a 2009 movie, making a cameo of himself. Bowie’s last album “Blackstar” became an instant hit and a critically-acclaimed album.
Family and Death
Bowie’s first marriage was with Maria Angelica Barnett in 1970. The marriage didn’t last long, as Bowie started doubting his sexuality.
Before divorcing Maria Angelica Barnett, Bowie had a son with her. Although he wanted to call his son Zowie, he decided to name him Duncan.
Nowadays, Duncan is a professional movie director, as his debut movie “Moon” was a total success. Duncan keeps making movies and he shares the same creativity and dorkiness as his father.
David Bowie then married again, and this time with a Somali-American model Iman. Bowie had a daughter with Iman, who they called Alexandria Zahra Jones.
Although Bowie lived in New York City, he also had a house in London. On top of that, he owned an apartment in Sydney and a house on the island of Mustique.
David lived his last days with his wife and daughter in his house in New York City. Unfortunately, he passed away in 2016.
The Legend Remains Alive
Bowie’s legacy in music and films has inspired countless artists. Although Bowie isn’t with us anymore, we will always remember him for the rockstar he was.
