Ziggy Stardust

September 2, 2013 11:40 AM

My late entry in the Bowie Summer Challenge. Pretty much like my original idea, but of course it’s never quite like I imagined. Here’s what I ended up with. At least I did it, I never even started the last one.

That tolling bell at the beginning... I need one of those. Nice arrangement!

Morricone meets Stardust! Heh! Very nice.
The good, the glam and the ugly? I like it!

Thanks so much, glad you like it.

The good, the glam and the ugly?

I’m pretty sure I used to hang out at that club, ’86-’89, somewhere around then? It’s all a fog...

Don't worry, be Bowie.

The Good, the Glam, and the Sparkly, I meant! Sorry, but the word "ugly" has no place in these comments. This is a great take!

yeah, that's a great interpretation of one of my favorite riffs. And I dig the B section a ton. I kinda want to hear King Missile talking over this.

Couldn't ever have imagined this. Really cool arrangement. Just when I start to think there's not enough Ziggy in there something of the original comes through. This is like nothing else!

This is exactly what needs to be done.
