What Did David Bowie Do At Your Age?


Bowie at 14


Bowie is back with a new album at 68, he is a legend, a superstar and close to a god for many people. The mystery grows with each new videos he releases, whether it is an intense 10-minute movie for ‘Blackstar’ or this new one for ‘Lazarus’, where he lies blindfolded on a hospital bed and rises from the dead. They are as amazing as they are weird and disturbing.

Supbowie is a website that allows you to check what Bowie was doing at your age. it’s very simple, you enter your age in the box and it tells you what Bowie had already accomplished at the same age… and when I say accomplish,… you’ll see, it is obviously extremely depressing to compare yourself to Bowie.

At 12? He started playing the saxophone. He plays the instrument on the “Steeleye Span” album, “Now We Are Six”.

At 15? He formed his first band, “The Kon-rads”. Rad indeed.

At 17? He released his first ever release, “Liza Jane/Louie Louie Go Home” in June 1964, under the name of “Davie Jones with The King-Bees”.

At 20? He released his self-titled debut album “David Bowie”.

At 25? He put the finishing touch to the look of his character “Ziggy Stardust” and released his 5th studio album “The Rise and fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars”.

At 36? He released the album “Let’s Dance”, co-produced by Chic’s Nile Rodgers. Selling at least 7 million copies, the album became the most commercially successful album of his career.

At 50? He created “Bowie Bonds”, financial securities he backed with royalties from his pre-1990 work. Bowie issued the bonds in 1997 and earned $55 million from the sale. The rights to his back catalog were returned to him when the bonds matured in 2007.

At 60? He made a special guest appearance on the SpongeBob SquarePants episode “Atlantis SquarePantis” as the “Lord Royal Highness”.

And it goes on and on, Bowie never stops to amaze you year after year, and Supbowie is at his image, playful, surprising, mysterious… knowing that 6 girls asked him out on Valentine’s day at the age of 14, tells the whole picture: many were already under the spell when he was just a teen! Of course he married his clone, Angie Bowie, when he was just 23, had a son at 24, became an extra-terrestrial at 25 but fell to Earth at 29, was hit by Lou Reed at 32, but hit Broadway at 33, played Bertolt Brecht at 35 and danced on 7 millions of albums at 37…

There is not a year when Bowie was not busy at recording music, reinventing himself, staring in a movie or playing theater, launching his own internet service, refusing an offer of knighthood by the queen,… Bowie has done it all and this site is the perfect bio… try it, you will be depressed or amazed.
