Bowie Odyssey 72 (collector's edition)
The third volume in the Bowie Odyssey series places the reader in the screaming front rows of Ziggymania as Simon Goddard continues his entrancing journey through the decade Bowie changed pop forever.
Changes, 1972. Rock is now glam, kids are now droogs and David Bowie is now Ziggy Stardust – the first openly bisexual rock’n’roll idol crashlanding into the gloomy blacked-out Britain of the three-day week. Perfect conditions to finally realise his dream of becoming the ultimate singing star, blowing minds, stages and TV screens as he liberates a generation with tight satin, lip gloss and the irresistible wham-bam of his Spiders From Mars. Music, fashion and the old codes of gender will never be the same again. But as his runaway fame quickly blurs all lines between fantasy and reality, neither will David.
