2012 – David Bowie(Ziggy Stardust)is being commemorated on Heddon Street on This Day in Rock Music History!
Heddon is London’s trendiest shopping district. It will celebrate the 40th Anniversary Ziggy’s album “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars” by placing a plaque to commemorate the street corner used in the Cover shot for the famous album, released in 1972.
“It was cold and it rained and I felt like an actor,” Bowie recollected. “We did the photographs outside on a rainy night and then upstairs in the studio we did the Clockwork Orange look-a-likes that became the inner album sleeve.”
