** He was set to reprise his role from ''Film/TwinPeaksFireWalkWithMe'' as Phillip Jeffries in the 2017 revival of ''Series/TwinPeaks'', but his death prevented it from happening.

* AwesomeDearBoy: Inverted -- he turned down the role of Max Zorin in ''Film/AViewToAKill'' because he hated the script and didn't think it would be fun to work on ("I didn't want to spend five months watching my stunt double fall off cliffs"). Played straight with several of his film roles, which he usually picked over other, more conventional star vehicle offers because he wanted to work with their directors, performers, or simply liked the concepts.

* WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants: On many albums, Bowie went into the studio with a few chord changes and wrote the songs on the hoof (""Music/{{Heroes}}"" was being written as it was recorded). Averted, however, on ''Music/HunkyDory'' on which Bowie carefully crafted the songs on the piano before entering the studio.

* BreakthroughHit: "Starman". In the U.K., his ''Top of the Pops'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v342TST9tFw performance of this song]], complete with some FauxYay between him and guitarist Mick Ronson, is as fondly recalled as a superstar-making moment as Music/MichaelJackson's performance of "Billie Jean" on ''Motown 25'' is everywhere else. His U.S. breakthrough was "Fame" in 1975.

** Bowie had long teased writing an autobiography, and apparently made several attempts throughout his career. One such project was ''David Bowie: Object'', in which he would have told his life story through 50 objects. The project ultimately fell through, but found a spiritual successor in the ''David Bowie Is...'' exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. Bowie was not involved with that project, but did allow its curators access to his extensive personal archives, and apparently most of the items that Bowie had set aside for ''Object'' wound up being selected for the exhibit.
This list shows the last 10 events of 160. Show all.
