When Ziggy Played Guitar - David Bowie, the Man Who Changed the World

Author(s): Dylan Jones

Music

On 6 July 1972, David Bowie, with a flame-orange cockade quiff, lavishly applied make-up, wearing a multi-coloured jumpsuit that looked as though it were made from fluorescent fish skin, and carrying a brand spanking new blue acoustic guitar, made his third appearance on Top of the Pops. It was this performance that properly resonated with Bowie's audience, and caused a seismic shift in the zeitgeist, embedding the Ziggy Stardust persona into the nation's consciousness. In When Ziggy Played Guitar, Dylan Jones looks back at one of the most influential moments in pop history, and the birth of an icon.
