I copied John Lennon; I copied a bit of David Bowie. It’s such a shame, and I’m so glad that now young girls have so many different role models in all different walks of life.

Val Kilmer

It’s fun to look at people that are so good at acting that aren’t actors, like David Bowie creating a mystique about rock n’ roll. I’ve listened to ‘Ziggy Stardust’ as much as any rock n’ roll fan – I don’t really know what it’s about, but it sure is fun to think about David Bowie as this mad creation.

From a musical standpoint, I was inspired by ’90s hip hop, with a lot of drums and the tempos. I’m always inspired by David Bowie and Prince.

Trent Reznor

I would love to be looked at some day – and I’m not ever saying I’m at this level – but I’d love to be mentioned in the same breath as a Bowie or an Eno. Those are the people that I admire artistically, their career trajectory, the integrity throughout their career, the bravery of their career.

Trent Reznor

Now U2’s not my favorite band, but I do respect them, and in the same way I respect Bowie: They change without fear of change.

Tricky

I grew up in a mixed-race family in Bristol. My cousin was this white guy who was interested in Parliament, Marc Bolan, Bowie. His friends were football thugs and while I was getting ready for bed, they’d be listening to all that music. When I was older, I’d go to a Jamaican sound system and there were no white people.

Toni Basil

Toni Basil

People don’t connect the girl that sang ‘Mickey’ with the girl who was one of the seven original Lockers or the same girl who was in ‘Easy Rider’ or the same girl who choreographed David Bowie, Tina Turner, and Bette Midler tours. It’s like I’ve led five lives.

Tilda Swinton

Tilda Swinton

My whole relationship with Bowie started when I was 13, and I bought a copy of ‘Aladdin Sane’ when I didn’t have a record player. I had this record for a year before I could play it, and it was the image – not the sound – that I was attracted to. I just saw this image and thought he was my cousin.

Tilda Swinton

I was talking recently with a friend of mine who’s determined to never meet her heroes, and I have another friend who’s been horribly disillusioned a couple of times.
