Definitely need to know your stuff for that one - I scored 10 but in all honesty was only confident on 5/6

Good quiz - thanks for posting

Your score: 9 / 15 :geek:
Under Pressure...
Not bad, but not amazing either. There's still more about Bowie for you to learn – do it by listening to Bowie Five Years On to commemorate the fifth anniversary of David's death.

A lot of those who post on this thread may be aware of this but in case anyone missed it, here's a link to Mark Radcliffe's Bowie tribute radio show from Sunday.

I'm listening now and recommended if you haven't already listened. :)

7 but I guess that's OK as I know next to nothing about David Bowie and guessed all but one - and that was only because 2 of the 3 answers made no sense.
