David Bowie changed his original name to avoid confusion with which famous “Dave”?
- Davy Jones:Before becoming one of the most influential musicians of his era, David Bowie was known as David Jones, a young London singer in a local band who was fascinated by American culture. He was born David Robert Jones, but he changed his name when he was 18 to avoid confusion with another British musician of the same name, Davy Jones, who would later become the frontman for The Monkees. Bowie once quipped that his manager had told him “Nobody’s going to make a monkey out of you.” The singer adopted the name David Bowie in 1965 in homage to Jim Bowie, the Texan rebel played by Richard Widmark in the 1960 film “The Alamo.”
