bowie and jt

I was playing "Hey Day" this morning, and my 7 year old daughter said that "the singer guy sounds like the guy that played the Goblin King in the movie The Labyrinth." She was referring to David Bowie.I was wondering if you've ever been compared to Bowie before, and how does that feel to get that comparison? Lisa

JT SEZ: "I'm sure David Bowie would be very happy to know that he's recognized for his role in Labyrinth! Yeah, I've been compared... as a singer he's probably the biggest influence that I've had - and as a writer too. So, yeah, there's bound to be similarities"
