Overrated? Genius?

Genius.

Greater or lesser than the sum of his phases: Newley phase, Dylan phase, glam phase, Soul phase, Berlin phase, mainstream 80's, etc.,

What are you talking about?

Only as good as his collaborators: Eno, Visconti, Slick, Ronson, Alomar, Soupy Sales' kids, etc.,

What are you talking about?

Just an opportunist constantly jumping trends or a leader setting trends?

Definitely a pioneer.

a pop star in rock star clothing?

Surely some mistake.

Discuss.

Yes of couse Bowie is a genius. Jim Bowie. He invented the Bowie knife you know.
