Vandalised already:

"Feed the homeless first"
Aylesbury’s David Bowie statue has been vandalised less than 48 hours after it was unveiled on 25 March. The words “Feed the homeless first” have been spray-painted on the ground in front of the statue, while “RIP DB” has been painted on the wall behind the statue.
Hmm... almost a form of acceptance.

The Hazel O'Connor Story
In a busy career of 15 albums, Hazel had some misadventures in her youth, but after earning an Equity contract after an assignment in Tokyo, she secured the career-making role in Breaking Glass, and worked with frequent Bowie producer Tony Visconti on the soundtrack. In fact, Bowie himself offered to do some songs, but Hazel was able to turn him down as she'd written the rest herself. He did promise to see her at a gig, which happened to be on a bad night when she felt like quitting the business. But things turned round, and Bowie gave her good advice about dealing with fans, to make them feel important too. Interviewer Iain McNay remarked that Bowie was always striving to adapt and improve, hence many changes of image. Hazel had contract troubles with a record label, and kept her head above water, though knowing she would never make it big again.

Urban Myths - When Bowie Met Bolan
A meeting of minds in a mid-1960s office for a small-time manager, with David Jones and Marc Feld finding they had more in common than at first appeared. The whimsical attitude to the truth reached its apex when Feld splashed paint across Jones' face - the exact splash of Ziggy Stardust. Amusing, if slight.
