Ziggy Stardust Spot Marked With Heritage Plaque

08:01 AM Wednesday 3/28/12 | |

London authorities have put up a plaque to commemorate a small street with a big place in rock history.

Spandau Ballet star Gary Kemp on Tuesday unveiled the plaque in Heddon Street, 40 years after David Bowie stood on the spot for the cover photo of his album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.

Photographer Brian Ward’s picture of a guitar-toting Bowie, in futuristic jumpsuit, standing in the lamp-lit alley helped establish the British musician as a mold-breaking star.

Messianic bandleader Ziggy Stardust was one of several personas he adopted.

Kemp, a longtime Bowie fan, said Ziggy offered a dash of glamor in a “much darker, more impoverished London” than the city of today.
