This is the third part of The David Bowie Story, a BBC documentary series about the life and times of one of the greatest and most influential artists in popular music. Listen to the previous parts here: Part 1: The Apprenticeship, Part 2: One Man Against the World.
Part 3 of the David Bowie Story focuses on Bowie’s fascination for America, an “alternative world” that catches his imagination. But it was getting harder and harder for him to get out of the Ziggy Stardust persona, which had became an easy way to escape from reality. He ends up retiring Ziggy and goes to find other sources of inspiration, especially from american musicians. But the heavy use of drugs starts to really affect his personality.
