    This Might Be The Most Epic '90s Alt-Rock Photo Of All Time

    And really, ONLY David Bowie could have brought all these people together!

    On Jan. 9, 1997, David Bowie celebrated his 50th birthday in the most fitting way possible, by throwing a concert/birthday bash at Madison Square Garden.

    And, David also invited a few of his famous rockstar friends to his birthday party -- which lead to this one EPIC photo:

    Here are some of his friends that were able to come and wish him a happy b-day:
