When David Bowie Became Ziggy Stardust
"We went on holiday to Cyprus and the plane got hit by lightning," Woodmansey says. "He went white and fainted. He was so emaciated from the hard work, you could see the veins on his face. He didn't fly after that.
"In the early days, we'd have a laugh, go clubbing – but later on it became apparent that he'd gone into character.

He had turned into Ziggy Stardust." more on this story
