After the loss of David Bowie, something emerged that showed a side of him that most of us didn’t know: Dude did KILLER impressions. In 1985, Bowie was recording the soundtrack to Absolute Beginners at a London studio. Just for fun, he scribbled down some lyrics and performed them in the style of Bruce Springsteen (who recently paid his own tribute to the late music legend). Then he went on to take a turn as Iggy Pop, Bob Dylan, and more. The sound engineer kept the tape rolling and thus, we have a little comic treasure to remember Bowie by.
