A Journey Through the 12 Ages of David Bowie


Ziggy Stardust

Three decades on, and still the definitive Bowie persona as far as a lot of people are concerned. It was also Bowie’s most extensive exercise in creating a background and actual character to go with his image, so much so that for a while, at least, Ziggy and his creator were largely indistinguishable. This, of course, made it all the more shocking when Bowie consigned the character to rock ‘n’ roll suicide.
