David Bowie Wiki

The DJ is a character mentioned in the song "D.J." from the album Lodger.


The DJ first appeared physically in the music video for "D.J".

He is first seen entering a what's been suggested as a recording studio or a radio station. The video quickly cuts to him destroying his stereo with a hammer, and then back to him normally working.

He is later seen walking through a crowded street, interacting with the people around him as they try to get close to him. Two people, a man and a woman, both manage to kiss him on the cheek, separately.
