David Bowie (Mini Episode): The occult, cocaine, orgies, arrests, exorcisms, a weird flirtation with fascism and a dead body.

Tuesday, 9 February

No musical artist better personified the hedonism of the ’70s than David Bowie. He captivated the imaginations of music fans all over the world with a dizzying array of creative alter egos; Major Tom, Ziggy Stardust and the Thin White Duke among them, and his obsession with occultist Aleister Crowley drove him down a dark, excessive hole filled with cocaine, orgies, arrests, fascism, death and madness that very nearly destroyed him. This is a mini episode of Disgraceland. To listen to the full episode as well as all archived episodes of Disgraceland, episodes on The Rolling Stones, Cardi B. Ozzy Osbourne, Prince and others follow @disgracelandpod on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
