Ziggyology by Simon Goddard
“This is Ziggy – his rise to fame and how that success destroyed the very creation. Long live Ziggy.”
‘Ziggyology’ was the greatest invention in the history of pop music – the rock god who came from the stars – which struck a young David Bowie like a lightning bolt from the heavens.
When Ziggy the glam alien messiah fell to Earth, he transformed Bowie from a prodigy to a superstar who changed the face of music forever. But who was Ziggy Stardust?
And where did he really come from? In a work of supreme pop archaeology, Simon Goddard unearths every influence that brought Ziggy to life – from HG Wells to Holst, Kabuki to Kubrick, and Elvis to Iggy. Ziggyology documents the epic drama of the Starman’s short but eventful time on Planet Earth… and why Bowie eventually had to kill him.
Moving effortlessly through Art Rock to Glam Rock, to Post Punk, Pop and Electronic, Bowie is the subject of dozens of books. We are lucky enough to feature some of the best in our collection. The Terry O Neil limited editions, the biography Ziggyology by Simon Goddard or the Golden Years, a day-by-day account of Bowie’s life from the start of 1970 to the end of 1980 are among the options we have to offer.
