The death of Ziggy . . .
This meant the birth of a new Bowie image.  Could Bowie survive his rapid change?
Of course he could . . . For a while.
"Diamond Dogs" came to life in 1974, and the tour lasted throughout '75, resulting in a live album entitled "David Live [from the Philadelphia Tower]."  David admits to never have listened to the album.
One memorable moment was at the Grammy Awards ceremony at the Uris Theater in NY, where and when Bowie presented the award for Best Female Soul Singer to Aretha Franklin.  Bowie admits that this was one of the only times he had ever been present at such an awards ceremony.
This year, Bowie and Cher also get together, as performs on her show, and makes a couple of performances later on.
