A good read and an insight for those of us too young at the time,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: When Ziggy Played Guitar: David Bowie and Four Minutes that Shook the World (Hardcover)
Unfortunately I was only 4 years old at the time of the titular 4 minutes (Starman on TOTP) and as such didn't see the clip first time around. I got into Bowie in the early 80s specifically after seeing an edit of this clip on another TV show.
The book is very well written, as you'd expect, and offers a compelling narrative which alternates between the author's own experience and a broader oversight of the impact of Bowie on popular culture since Ziggy's inception.
I've just finished the book having only started it yesterday, which isn't bad going for me as I'm quite easily-distracted when reading.
Some great photographs in the book also!
