Angela Bowie – The Prettiest Star

One thing is certain:
No Angie – No Ziggy…
It was in fact Angela Barnett Jones, David Bowie’s former wife who liberated the shy young musician and gave him the push over the top that he needed. Angie introduced David to many unconventional people and ideas whose style and influence helped shape the various personae he soon adopted. Angie was the first to outfit David and his band the Spiders From Mars, designing and sewing all the costumes for his shows at the Roundhouse…David’s song about Angie, ‘The Prettiest Star’ appeared on his album Aladdin Sane (1973).
