David Bowie: The Rise And Gall of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars
Sporting one of the longest titles for an album that is also an all-time classic, David Bowie’s 1972 masterpiece, The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars, is the work that broke Bowie worldwide as a music superstar.
Ziggy Stardust was the first character that Bowie adopted as a fashion statement and alter ego, beginning a long trend of Bowie’s chameleon like ability to come up with striking personas to inhabit on stage.
The songs on Ziggy Stardust are superb, including Five Years, Starman, Hang On To Yourself, Soul Love, Suffragette City, Moonage Daydream, Ziggy Stardust, and the incredible Rock ‘N Roll Suicide.
Of all the rockers we have lost in the past few years, I miss David Bowie the most. He certainly left us a myriad of treasures to enjoy for as long as music is played.
