On 31 July 2000 David Bowie’s website www.davidbowie.com was awarded Best Artist Site of the year at the Yahoo! Internet Music Awards. Bowie accepted the award on behalf of BowieNet from Sandra Bernhard at a ceremony at Studio 54 in New York. He also accepted the gong for 2000 Online Pioneer Honoree, which was presented by Public Enemy’s Chuck D.
Bowie gave amusing acceptance speeches for each award, but the highlight of the evening was his live performances of two classics. Along with Mike Garson on keyboards, he performed breathtaking versions of both ‘Wild Is The Wind’ and ‘Life On Mars‘.
