The Starman comes crashing down to earth.

After 182 live shows - David Bowie said he was calling time on performing on stage on this day (3rd July) in 1973.

It turned out he meant the persona Ziggy Stardust was retiring - not Bowie himself.

Only his guitarist Mick Ronson knew about the planned announcement which shocked the rest of the band and the crew.
