Angie Bowie

I never found Angela Bowie's androgynous looks all that appealing, but there was something glittering and wonderful about her and David in the early to mid 70's, wasn't there?  I haven't read her books yet, but she has always struck me as an ultimately tragic figure, which is perhaps why I find something intriguing about her life. She met David Bowie when she was 19 and spent her young adult life traveling around with him and being his female counterpart of sorts, but never really attained any real fame or celebrity by her own merits. Maybe it's the song "Golden Years" (which always makes me want to burst into tears), written about her, that seems so heartwrenching. Alas.  Enjoy these scans, and please credit if you repost. <3

Hi there. I'd love to, but I'm a bit discouraged to post Marianne pictures anymore because people keep taking them and posting them as their own on other sites. :(
