10. David Bowie
While David Bowie is certainly one of the greatest musicians of his generation, he is also a full-fledged intellectual with widespread interests. In the 1970s, one of those interests was the occult.
Of course, he fostered an image of being an “otherworldly” person onstage, but many who knew him say that he was also engaged in supernatural activities offstage.
In 1975, Bowie became increasingly addicted to cocaine, which let him work and make music almost nonstop. The drug allowed him to beat back sleep while he was touring and making albums. But soon, the side effects of the drug began to overtake him, and he developed cocaine psychosis.
At the same time, Bowie began to eat up information on the occult. Whether he was suffering from the effects of cocaine or was actually under assault by the spirit world, Bowie began to fear that he was being invaded by demonic spirits he had summoned.
With his cocaine addiction fueling his obsession with witchcraft and the occult, Bowie was afraid that witches were attempting to steal his semen. He believed they wanted to make a child for sacrifice. It was at this time that Bowie was recording Station to Station, an album that makes frequent occult references. He admits that he can’t remember making the album, such was the extent that cocaine had ravaged his mind.
Those around him began to fear for his mental state. Although he was just as productive musically as he’d always been, his psyche was falling apart. However, one of Bowie’s friends convinced him to allow a white witch to perform an exorcism on him and his home. Bowie later said that the exorcism had worked. However, this coincided with his quitting cocaine, which could be more than a coincidence.
