Flashback: Klaus Nomi, Singer, Performer, and Weirdo Extraordinaire

Some people were born fabulous, and others turn themselves into legends through sheer will alone. Klaus Nomi, a German-born singer (countertenor, to be exact), went to New York City in the '80s and, while doing odd jobs like making pastries and chopping vegetables, invented a character so odd and interesting, he became an underground hit. With black pointy lips, a hairdo that accentuated his receding hairline, and a tuxedo that wouldn't have looked out of place on The Jetsons, Nomi even landed a gig singing backup for David Bowie for a brief time. He's no longer with us, but his crazy songs and videos are.
