Back in 1965, a fresh-faced, 18-year-old Bowie was known as Davy Jones, but he changed his stage name (which was inspired by frontiersman Jim Bowie) so as not to be confused with a certain member of the Monkees. (Photo: Redferns)

I felt the need to bring up David Bowie in my conversation with Chris back when I met him in 2013 . Regarding the glam side of IAMX ,the glitter , the makeup and how it all reminded me of the early Ziggy Stardust era . He smiled and kind of agreed with all I was stating…. but we quickly moved on to Prince ( lol)

Anyway next to Chris , David was it for me. He inspired my art , shaped my fashion and taught me all I know about music and surprisingly film ….
Physically , in certain angles and light , I have always seen a resemblance between Bowie and Corner. From their sharp jaw lines to their thin crooked smiles. Not to mention the similarities between their glamorous fashion , extravagant make up and androgynous style . As for the music they are both unique in their own ways. Regardless of past interviews the early Bowie years had a huge effect on Chris and his art there is no denying that .

Rest in power Starman.
