FSOTD #35/Blue Jean (1984)
Love him or loathe him, David Bowie is undeniably a central figure in the big, bad story of rock music. The Wiki article puts it all together in a concise (yet by no means brief) offering. There was one short paragraph that pretty much said it all: In the BBC's 2002 poll of the 100 Greatest Britons, Bowie ranked 29. Throughout his career he has sold an estimated 136 million albums, and ranks among the ten best-selling acts in UK pop history. In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine ranked him 39th on their list of the 100 Greatest Rock Artists of All Time.
