Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery -- especially when it comes from David Bowie.
Listen to the late singer throw down impressions of Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan (some say Marc Bolan), Iggy Pop and other bigs you might recognize.
Mark Saunders, a sound engineer in August 1985 when Bowie walked into London's West Side Studios to work on the "Absolute Beginners" soundtrack, writes in the YouTube description that Bowie wrote lyrics for a Springsteen impersonation. Then the singer moved on to mimic other known performers.
He was quite the card.
