Musical persona used by the Undisputable greatest musical artist of all-time, David Bowie, which was created in the late 70's. The Thin White Duke was Bowie at his musical peak, clouded by a cocaine-induced haze in which he recorded the album, "Station to Station," but claims not recalling doing so, due to his excessive cocaine use. Arguably the most controversial and darkest of Bowie characters.
Guy who knows nothing about music: "Hey, wouldn't you agree that Eminem's Slim Shady character is the greatest musical persona of all-time."

Guy who knows music: "Hell no, shithead, the Thin White Duke is far more abstract, musically talented, and creative. PWNED!"
