(b Brixton, London, 8 Jan 1947). English rock singer, songwriter and producer. His career has witnessed a large number of musical changes. His influence on a succession of styles and their attendant subcultures – glam and punk in the 1970s, new romanticism in the 1980s and Britpop in the 1990s – has made him arguably the most important British recording artist since the Beatles.

He began recording in the mid-1960s
