DEFINITIONS OF DAVID BOWIE FAN TYPES:
11th Floor Resident - These fans tend to watch others cruising around following David Bowie.
Absolute Beginner - Own 'Let's Dance' on CD and have two old 8-track cartridges from their grandad's old Ford Granada MK2 glovebox. They also have that "first" album - you know the one with "that Major Tom song on it."
Anorak - These even know the Japanese catalogue number of 'Can't Help Thinking About Me' on the Pye label.
Art Decadist - These lot think they can paint like Bowie when in actual fact they are about as good as Paul McCartney. Give it up for Christ's sake!
Astronette - You can curse at this bunch. And they just stand there all steel like.
BNutter - Nutters who eat bees. Well what else could it be?
Baalist - Scruffy bunch who don't often wash much. Like looking at female anatomy.
Believer - These preach Bowieism as their chosen religion and bow down in his mere presence. They pray to the light machine every single evening for a new Bowie album or DVD to be released.
Big Brother - Usually have younger sisters and watch every move they make.
Black Country Rocker - Usually hail from the Birmingham area and quite like Ozzy Osbourne and other heavy metal crap.
Bowiephile - These tend to be manual workers who are good with their hands. They have their own Bowie Tool Box and yes you guessed it they refer to their rasp file their 'Bowie phile'. Sadder than sad.
Bureau Supplier - Ageing men and women who reckon they first saw Bowie, I mean Jones, at The Bricklayers Arms in 1965.
Candidate - Will do anything for a box chocolates on the first date.
Cat People Person - These weird lot got into Bowie after watching the movie 'Cat People'. Amazing what a soundtrack can do.
Chameleon Watcher - Also known as drunk couch potatoes. They are simply content to just buy and listen to his music and watch videos. Usually employed as tabloid journalists and always refer to David Bowie as a Chameleon. For f**k's sake be original and STOP calling him that. Bowie ain't green, he ain't a lizard, he doesn't eat flies and he doesn't change colour to match his background.
Ching-A-Linger - Also known as ching-a-liggers. They try to get in anywhere for free.
Cig Dimp Collector - A collector of Bowie dimps. Searching for Bowie Marlboro cigarette dimps from hotel ashtrays, even scouring the gutters in the street. Then carefully placed into a jam jar labelled 'Bowie Butts'. Now obsolete. Will start selling their spares on eBay shortly no doubt.
Diamond Dog - Beware of these lot. Can be usually found hidden behind a tree and they eat lots of eggs.
DJ'er - Own 'The World Of David Bowie' and secretly prefer to play The Village People's 'YMCA'.
Dodo - These lot are really weird but you didn't hear it from me.
Earthling - Not of this earth... what colour is the sky in your world?
European Cannon - Live in Europe and have big balls.
Future Legend - These usually have lots of downloadable mp3 songs that they've produced in their bedrooms.

Heathen - They don't know if they believe in God, so they preach Bowieism instead.
Hyper - They pretend to be huge hardcore David Bowie collectors and let it be known to all and sundry that they have the original Letter To Hermoine... not the song - THE actual letter. When really all they do have is the 'Singles Collection' and an original copy of 'Ground Control To Major Tom' on the Phillips label.

Hero - Tend to go to every show Bowie performs around the world and hang on every word he utters from that immortal mouth.

Sound and Visioner - Listen intently with each new recording that Bowie makes trying to suss out the lyrics without much success.
Space Boy - From an early age these types wanted to be astronauts. Then they discovered Bowie, dreams unfulfilled, ended up with a job at MacDonalds. They are just sleepy now.
Spider From Mars - These tend to continually live in the past. Buy Heathen and get a life.
Starman - As Moby says: "We are all made of stars."
Suburbian - Usually ex Pet Shop Boys fans who can't make their minds up.
Suffragette - Most live in Manchester. Originals were members of the National Society for Women's Suffrage which was formed there 1867. Their first ever meeting was held at the Free Trade Hall in 1868. One hundred and four years later - Bowie played there. Latter ones attended the gig or they did in their dreams.
Super Creep - These are real creeps, but hardly classed as Super.

Ziggyite - Like Marmite... you either love 'em or hate 'em.
Ziggyphile - These lot have already pre ordered 5 copies of the Moonage Daydream book. Rich bastids!
