Retro : BBC – David Bowie – Story Of Ziggy Stardust

Marking the 40th anniversary of the release of David Bowie’s most iconic album ‘The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust‘ the BBC presented a really enthralling programme. Though it did not actually feature some new interviews with the man himself or much input from the late Mick Ronson it did give a different insight to the others in the ‘The Spiders From Mars‘. That being Mick Woodmansey on drums, bassist Trevor Bolder and Mark Garson who tinkled the keyboards. What was interesting was how he got this stage of his life nurturing his alter ego and how his then wife Angie pushed him.  Even I did not realise how prolific he was during the early seventies with a whole succession of albums released. With each release the changes, no pun intended, were very evident. It also showed how he interacted with other musicians like Iggy Pop and Lou Reed. There is no need to speak about the music as that really does speak for itself. So enjoy this documentary with contributions that included Elton John was stated he was in awe of Bowie’s new creation.
