Bowie Zowie

Dave Laing, Let It Rock, June 1973

WHAT YOU THINK of Bowie depends on your idea of rock-and-roll. It's no good criticising him for falling short in what he's trying to do, because he's right there. The point is – is Ziggy Stardust Like A Rolling Stone, does he belong in Heartbreak Hotel or in Strawberry Fields, does he Let It Rock?
