Follow @cultboxtv and RT for a chance to win one of 3 x ‘Ziggyology’ books about David Bowie – Info: http://bit.ly/12RJaEx #ZiggyCB
Part evolutionary detective story, part glam rock gospel, Simon Goddard traces the epic genesis of Ziggy Stardust through the ages – the Starman in the sky of our earliest ancestors, shaped by history through the influence of everyone from Beethoven and H. G. Wells to Elvis Presley, Stanley Kubrick and Iggy Pop. The book also documents in detail the saga of Ziggy’s brief but eventful time on Planet Earth and why, after finally triumphing over his rivals to steal the hearts and haircuts of a glitter-cheeked nation, he decided to commit his infamous act of Rock ’N’ Roll Suicide live on stage before his adoring fans.
Forty years on, the light from Ziggy Stardust still shines bright in the world around us, from the stadium pop theatre of Lady Gaga to the dancing Ziggys of Danny Boyle’s Olympic Opening Ceremony. Now, Ziggyology – the book that fell to Earth – comes as the ultimate, star-spangled salute to his, and his creator’s, enduring brilliance.
