Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars ( The Movie)
Here is the classic 1973 film for all your glitter rock loving needs. Ronson was a mountian of ALIEN FuZz guitar back then.
Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars: The Motion Picture was a 1973 documentary and concert movie by D.A. Pennebaker. Who also made - Dont Look Back with Bob Dylan, Monterey Pop, Sweet Toronto. It features David Bowie and his backing group The Spiders from Mars performing at the Hammersmith Odeon, July 3rd 1973. Bowie had taken the stage persona of "Ziggy Stardust", a science fiction based, theatrical, enigmatic, androgynous bisexual character and produced two albums during this period. This evening was the last show in the concert tour promoting Bowie's 1973 album Aladdin Sane and the 60th gig in a tour of Britain that started on May 12th. At the end of the evening, aptly just before the song "Rock 'n' Roll Suicide", Bowie announced that, Not only is this is it the last show of the tour, but it's the last show that we'll ever do. To the audience it was unclear whether he meant as Bowie or as Ziggy but he had at that moment killed off his Ziggy persona.
