David Bowie – Space Oddity (Live on the Midnight Special in 1973)

David Bowie – or, more accurately, Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars – on Burt Sugarman’s Midnight Special. Performing a spot on version of “Space Oddity”. Bowie has Mick Ronson with them, rock face guitar god of the day, in a lovely white satin outfit. Bowie is all decked out in his best Ziggy Stardust finery. And the bass player has the most serious sideburns I’ve ever seen in my life. They shock me every time I see them.
