Bio of David Bowie - a True Rock Enigma
casino blog
30 March 2010

Almost impossible to describe with any one adjective, rock enigma David Bowie has been a world famous singer and actor for nearly five decades. Born January 8, 1947 in London as David Robert Hayward Jones, Bowie is perhaps the most famous glam rock entertainer of all time, sharing the title with - and earning it because of - his alter ego Ziggy Stardust.

David grew up in Brixton, a poor part of London, and claims to have decided on his career at a very early age. Bowie would turn to music for an escape, but unlike many who share a similar story, David’s musical tastes were perhaps more eclectic than any other music star in history.

By the time Bowie was a teenager, he was already on the music scene and trying out different bands. He fronted such bands at the King Bees, Mannish Boys, the Konrads and the Lower Third. David was also acting in small stage roles and working in advertising, and this reflected in his varying musical tastes.

08 October 2009

Currently the largest and leading auction house on the planet, Christie's deals primarily in fine arts and has an extremely impressive resume, boasting world records for sale prices and revenue. There is also a shroud of mystery surrounding Christie's. Many have speculated that the auction house is full of corruption, and various investigations have been conducted in attempts to prove these allegations true.

Today, Christie's locations can be found all over the world. The company's main salesroom is headquartered in London on King Street in the St. James's quarter of the city, and has been in the same location since 1823. There's also a London salesroom in South Kensington, opened in 1975.

Christie's currently has 85 offices around the world. Not all offices are official salesrooms, but all are pertinent to the auction business. These offices can be found in New York City, Los Angeles, Amsterdam, Paris, Moscow, Geneva, Berlin, Spain, Milan, Rome, Hong Kong, Tel Aviv, Dubai, Mexico City, and many other locations. Christie's was also the first auction house to exhibit works in Beijing, China, breaking the international barrier.
