BOWIE: STARDUST, RAYGUNS & MOONAGE DAYDREAMS
By Michael Allred, Steve Horton and Laura Allred
In life, David Bowie has been one of the most magnetic icons of modern pop culture, seducing generations of fans with his music and counterculture character. In death, Bowie's cult only intensifies. The only musician, Bowie's legacy is remarkable, but his place in the popular imagination is due to much more than his music. As a visual artist, he challenged the classification with his psychedelic aesthetic, his larger-than-life image and his way of hovering at the border of the surreal.
BOWIE: Stardust, Rayguns and Moonage Daydreams tells the story of Bowie's career from obscurity to glory; and parallel to the rise and fall of his alter ego as well as the rise and fall of Ziggy Stardust. While Mars spiders implode slowly, Bowie fights with his character Ziggy. The outcome of this internal conflict will change not only David Bowie, but also the world.
