The Organic Pick of the Week

David Bowie

Each week, a different artist is spotlighted as "The Organic Pick of the Week." Hourly segments of "The Organic Pick" feature the artist's music along with bio information and sound bites.

He was born David Robert Jones, but changed his name to David Bowie so as not to be confused with Davey Jones of the Monkees. Known as the "Thin White Duke," he was something of a renaissance man; beyond his immense talents as a singer-songwriter, Bowie was an actor, painter and record producer.
