Everyone knows David Bowie's contributions to the music industry. In his heyday he was a glam rock, gender-bending mega star. He brought us tight clothing, rock anthems, and Ziggy Stardust. But before he was famous, he was an adorable child.

Above are pictures of the rock legend back in 1955 while studying at at Burnt Ash School located in a suburb of London. He was nowhere near donning makeup or wearing outrageous outfits, but he still had those folded ears. You know, Bowie recently put out an album, after ten years of no new material, entitled "The Next Day" that went to no. 1 in the U.K. Even at 66 he's not slowing down.
