Actor, author, podcaster and filmmaker Stephen Tobolowsky (Silicon Valley, Californication, Groundhog Day) joins me for meditative episode on David Bowie’s classic concept album ‘The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars’.
Why is rock’n’roll really all about death? What is the real emotional story of Ziggy Stardust? How does Rock’n’Roll Suicide preach Bowie’s message of inclusion? What was Bowie’s best performance as an actor?
Plus, Stephen tells great stories about a marathon trip he took to see Bowie live, an anecdote from the set of Californication involving Sex Pistols legend Steve Jones, and the time he stepped on Bob Dylan.
