David Bowie

Good Genes or Good Docs?

10/4/2009 1:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David Bowie never goes out of fashion.

Here's a 26-year-old David Bowie back in 1973 (left) -- 36 years later, the 62-year-old version at a film festival in New York City (right). 

He must have his own "Tin Machine."

To A.B. - if you are referring to the eye with the dilated pupil then that would be his LEFT eye and NO he is not blind in it. He addressed this issue years's just a quirk which I'm sure has a medical term but I can't remember what the term is.

Forget the genes and 'bout that great colorist!

David Bowie is coooel. Although I liked his old teeth. They were part of his edgy persona.

Well of course he's a legend, in music,etc. but he's a human 1st. I met him before he was Bowie, In England, & his teeth were rotten & black...also morbidly skinny.....he looks great now! I wish I had his money for DR's that can DO that! Rock on David!

1. The answer is always "GOOD DOCS".

2. The eye condition is Horner's Syndrome.

You really need to add a NEITHER catagory to most of these. He looks his age.

Wow, some of the comments on here are ridiculous and badly informed. Someone said he did an interview where he admitted having plastic surgery. He's never said that at all! What interview is this? You're mistaken, he actually gets annoyed when people say he's had something done. He HAS admitted to having his teeth fixed; that's all. And to the person who says his teeth used to be black and rotting; show me a photo of that. His teeth were very crooked and sometimes stained with nicotine, but there's NEVER been a photo in his 40+ year career showing him with black, rotting teeth. To the person who says he has Horner's Syndrome; have you even looked up what that is? He has one sympton of that, an enlarged pupil; the rest of the symptons of Horner's is not present. In fact he has an eye injury from when he was 14 and was punched during a fight. So to the other person who says he's on something, you too are wrong. Geeze people, do some homework. For the record, he actually looks his age if you look closer at him, but that doesn't mean he doesn't look good. He looks a hell of a lot better and way more handsome than other 62 year old celebrities and that's just down to good genes.
