In this candid memoir, Woody describes the Spiders' early years when money was so tight that the band - Woody, Mick Ronson, Tony Visconti and, later, Trevor Bolder - all lived in Bowie's flat. He takes us through the period of intense creativity as they recorded 'The Man Who Sold the World', 'Hunky Dory', 'The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars' and 'Aladdin Sane', and reveals how Bowie transformed them from down-to-earth Yorkshiremen to velour-clad rock gods while bringing the legendary red-haired Ziggy Stardust to life.
