About this song

Pivotal song on "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars" (1972) which tells the central story of Ziggy Stardust's rise and fall. It was recorded in November 1971 at London's Trident Studios. "My records were selling and I was being a man in demand. I thought of Vince Taylor and wrote "Ziggy Stardust" - Bowie (1976). Special recordings of this song were broadcast on the Sounds of the Seventies (January 1972) and on Top Gear (May 1972).
