This final #AlphaBands entry is waiting in the sky, he’d like to come and meet us but he thinks he’d blow our minds, Z for Ziggy Stardust.
It feels good to close out this project with a portrait of an electrifying, paradigm crushing, human zeitgeist who harnessed the raw, strange and terrifying sexual power of music and changed the course of a generation of young people. In the early ‘70’s Bowie as Ziggy was making music obsessed with the future, with pushing us forward as a species, asking us to change fundamentally into something stranger and more beautiful than we’d ever seen on this planet. I feel the best music affects us this way, opens us up to a journey, changes us in some way, augments our reality. In this spirit, keep on rockin’, AlphaFriends.
