David Bowie 1973

Dissatisfied with his stage name as Davy (and Davie) Jones, which in the mid-1960s invited confusion with Davy Jones of The Monkees , Bowie renamed himself after the 19th-century American pioneer James Bowie and the knife he had popularised . [23] His April 1967 solo single, " The Laughing Gnome ", using speeded-up thus high-pitched vocals, failed to chart. Released six weeks later, his album debut, David Bowie , an amalgam of pop, psychedelia , and music hall , met the same fate. It was his last release for two years. [24]
