David Bowie – The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars | This Day In Music

Written by on April 14, 2021


14 April 1972, David Bowie released ‘Starman’ as a single in the UK, which became his first hit since 1969’s ‘Space Oddity’ three years before. The song was a late addition to the album The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars included at the insistence of RCA’s Dennis Katz, who heard a demo and loved the track, believing it would make a great single. The lyrics describe Ziggy Stardust bringing a message of hope to Earth’s youth through the radio, salvation by an alien ‘Starman’. https://www.thisdayinmusic.com/classic-albums/david-bowie-the-rise-and-fall-of-ziggy-stardust-and-the-spiders-from-mars/
