“Not only is it the last show of the tour”
So this is the contest we mentioned in our ’David Bowie and the beauty of three’ item recently.
We have a handful of signed, specially pressed single-sided vinyl 45s of David Bowie’s Farwell Speech/Rock ’N’ Roll Suicide, which is pictured top left in our montage.
The audio is from the final date of the Aladdin Sane UK tour which took place at Hammersmith Odeon on July 3rd, 1973, and was immortalised for the Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars Motion Picture.
We’ll be asking three questions on the theme of three over three days. The first of them is below, but you don’t need to do anything aside from ponder until further instructed.
So here’s that first question…
David Bowie’s backing band had been considerably expanded by the time of the Hammersmith Odeon show on July 3rd, 1973.
But what were the real names of the three original Spiders From Mars who backed David Bowie? You can include nicknames if you like.
Stay tuned for the remaining questions and instructions on how to enter over the next couple of days.
