David Bowie has been called upon by his fans to return to the road. The Ziggy Stardust performer turned 65 on Monday, January 9, 2012 prompting his supporters to reach out to him.
Several notable fans, including Boy George and Gary Barlow, sent their birthday wishes via Twitter.
Comedian David Baddiel added that he remains hopeful for a Bowie comeback:
“I know David Bowie is 65 today but god I wish he’d come out of retirement.”
A poll on digitalspy.com asked readers to vote on the top ten Bowie tracks of all time. “Life on Mars?” topped the poll with “Heroes,” “Ashes to Ashes,” “Let’s Dance” and “Starman” rounding out the top five.
Bowie’s last album, Reality, was released in 2003. For his part, the Thin White Duke did not comment on the internet buzz surrounding his birthday.
