I had no idea that there was a not-Ziggy before there was a Ziggy, The Arnold Corns. I'm only fifteen minutes into the BBC 4 Story of Ziggy Stardust and I'm already in a wiki snit fit, all indignant that I didn't know this.
I need to find a reputable Bowie biography to read. And then read Angie's book after so I can tell what's dirt and what's mud.
I'm glad this never went anywhere so that the song could really grow up.
