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.

Review:

"Dazzlingly pulls together all the vibrant strands that made up the star-spun cloth of Ziggy. Goddard is the aficionado." (Gary Kemp)

"Does for David Bowie what Greil Marcus's Lipstick Traces did for the Sex Pistols... Big, bold and refreshingly original... It's Ziggy as experienced from the alien inside" (MOJO Magazine ****)

"If 2013 is shaping up to be The Year Of David Bowie then Simon Goddard's glorious fantasia on the theme of Ziggy Stardust should be its key text... A tremendous account." (Q Magazine ****)

"If you’ve been enjoying David Bowie’s comeback, you’ll relish Simon Goddard’s offbeat paean of man-love to his earlier incarnation. Goddard offers a thrillingly unusual slant on how Ziggy Stardust...came into being" (The Observer)

"A great deal of research has gone into Ziggyology... Ziggy becomes a forcefield of fabulation, an imaginative cartography through and to whom all manner of ley lines pass...ingeniously and entertainingly (rendered)" (The Guardian)

Book Description:

The most ambitious and important book on Ziggy Stardust ever written, released to mark the 40th anniversary of Bowie's notorious Ziggy 'retirement concert'
