10 Things You Didn't Know About David Bowie

1. He doesn't have different coloured eyes. They're both blue

Despite popular opinion that Bowie is in possession of individually coloured irises, the truth is thus: he suffered a serious injury in 1962 when his schoolfriend George Underwood punched him in his left eye over a girl. After four months hospitalisation and fears his left eye would lose sight full time, doctors rested on a prognosis. Bowie would permanently suffer from faulty depth perception and a dilated pupil. Hence the discolouration. Despite the fracas, the pair remained firm friends, with Underwood creating the artwork for Bowie's early albums.
