He came from Outer Space...It 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.
