The album Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars was first released on 6th June 1972, which, as Blammo points out above, makes today its 29th birthday. Only one more year to wait until our special '30 years' celebrations in 2002!
Check out the Bowienet Ziggy Stardust section in Chronology, for audio clips and much more, or try the Ziggy Stardust Companion website, which has just been updated for June. New features there include an original RCA promotional T shirt from 1972. I also very much enjoyed last month's feature on fan pilgrimages to Heddon Street.
