Young David Bowie Was The Cutest Boy Scout Ever (PHOTO)

Not only can David Bowie crank out some the most iconic rock 'n' roll numbers of the last 50 years, he can also start a campfire and pop a tent.

That's right, before his Ziggy Stardust days Mr. Bowie was a Boy Scout. And we have the adorable photo to prove it.

This black-and-white gem, which we spotted on Retronaut, captures a younger but just as blonde Bowie at home in the great outdoors. Although he looks great in his Scouts uniform, we can't wait for him to discover his first skin-tight onesie.

Now that we've got you in the mood for all things Bowie, check out BOWIEVIRUS -- an art exhibition based on the androgynous rocker -- in the slideshow below.
