As everyone’s favorite London-based weirdo/rock god, David Bowie was great at being himself. And, as it turns out, he was shockingly good at being otherpeople, too.
Arecently surfaced audio clip hears the Thin White Duketaking on the personas music’s biggest artists. If imitation is the most sincereform of flattery,these celebrities are almost certainly blushing today.
