ziggy played guitar


i have been hearing this ziggy stardust clip all over the place this past week. over and over again catching snippets of that one line. i wouldn’t have thought much of it except that  just as i was about to write about something else – which i will get to in a minute – that david bowie song was just on the radio. hmmm what does it mean? does it mean anything? is there a coincidence i should be paying attention to? so i decided to look up the complete lyrics and here they are….you tell me what it all means.

 “Ziggy played guitar, jamming good with Weird and Gilly
The spiders from Mars.  He played it left hand
But made it too far
Became the special man, then we were Ziggy’s band
Ziggy really sang, screwed up eyes and screwed down hairdo
Like some cat from Japan, he could lick ’em by smiling
He could leave ’em to hang
Came on so loaded man, well hung and snow white tan.
So where were the spiders while the fly tried to break our balls
Just the beer light to guide us,
So we bitched about his fans and should we crush his sweet hands?

Ziggy played for time, jiving us that we were voodoo
The kids were just crass, he was the nazz
With God given ass
He took it all too far but boy could he play guitar

Making love with his ego Ziggy sucked up into his mind
Like a leper messiah
When the kids had killed the man I had to break up the band.

Oh yeah
Ziggy played guitaarrrrrr”
