Ziggy has left the building!
I have adored this man and his music since his Ziggy Stardust days! Always innovative. Always pushing that envelope. Never boring. I recall back in high school, a friend and I was trying to come up with a plan to get into the Tower Theater for one of his concerts. Why were we "trying?" Because waaaaaay back then you had to be a at least 18 to get in. We were only 15. :( Never did come up with a plan. No amount of make up, stuffing of the bra or high platform shoes could make us look legal. Oh, well. So we stayed home and listened to The Man Who Sold the World and Life on Mars. I remember when he used to come to Philly to record at the world-famous Sigma Sound Studios. Crowds would wait to see him pull up and rush into the studio. Rest in Peace, Ziggy and thank you.. You truly are golden stardust now.
