"Moonage Daydream is the most complete, detailed exploration of one of rock 'n' roll's greatest creations: Ziggy Stardust. Featuring more than 600 photographs selected from Mick Rock's vast archive, Moonage Daydream takes the reader from the early English concerts where Ziggy and the Spiders from Mars made their name, to Ziggy's final swansong, the flamboyant 1980 Floor Show." "Alongside Mick Rock's reflections on these incredible images, David Bowie adds his own thoughts: discussing Ziggy's origins and giving unprecedented insight into the stratospheric two-year career of his alter-ego. These include reflections on his collaboration with mime artist Lindsay Kemp; the breakthrough tour of the USA; the massive sell-out UK tour that culminated in Ziggy's official retirement; and the recording of Pin Ups in Paris." "Mick Rock's camera caught more of the Ziggy legend than any other and followed Bowie into hotel rooms and dressing rooms, on the road and socializing with musicians and friends including Lou Reed, Iggy Pop and Mick Jagger. Also included are formal studio sessions for the Pin Ups album sleeve and the four pioneering music videos that Mick directed and filmed for Bowie."--BOOK JACKET.
