Pop legend David Bowie has splashed out a staggering $1.16 million (GBP725,000) on a mountain in New York state.

The THIN WHITE DUKE reportedly fell in love with 64 acre (26 hectares) TONCHE MOUNTAIN near Woodstock in upstate New York while recording his latest album, 2001's HEATHEN, in a recording studio at the top of an adjacent peak.

Despite the hefty price-tag, Little Tonche's doesn't have any buildings.
