David (Jones) Bowie is Notable.
Rest in Peace & Rise in Glory

Bowie was a major figure in the world of popular music for over four decades, renowned for his progressive innovation in the 1970s. Bowie was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996.

He was born to Margaret Mary "Peggy" (née Burns) and Haywood Stenton "John" Jones. At the age of nine, his dancing during the newly introduced music and movement classes was strikingly imaginative: teachers called his interpretations "vividly artistic" and his poise "astonishing" for a child.

Bowie married Mary Angela Barnett (also known as Angie Bowie) on 19 March 1970 at Bromley Register Office on Beckenham Lane, Bromley, London. They had a son together, Zowie Bowie (now known as Duncan Jones, film director), and divorced on 8 February 1980 in Switzerland.

On 24 April 1992, David Bowie married Somali-American model Iman in a private ceremony in Lausanne. The wedding was later solemnized on 6 June in Florence. They had one daughter, Alexandria "Lexi" Zahra Jones, born in August 2000.

David died 10 January 2016 after an 18 month battle with liver cancer.
