Episode Description

Before Madonna discovered cone-shaped bustiers, before Marilyn Manson ever applied kabuki makeup, David Bowie shocked the world with glitter and gold as the androgynous glam-rock icon Ziggy Stardust. Who'd have thought the ultimate rocker from London Town--the man who made man-makeup cool, brought us "Under Pressure" and "Space Oddity," and married supermodel Iman--found his calling while listening to Little Richard's "Tutti Frutti" and blowing on a plastic saxophone? We'll explore a half-century's worth of artistic achievements both musical and otherwise, including a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and acting roles ranging from Jim Henson's Labyrinth to Scorsese's The Last Temptation of Christ.
