David Bowie – Rebel Rebel (Leaping Ahead #162)

Leaping Ahead Project 2016 #162: 160610

[Favourite 70’s tune (6)]

Originally written for an aborted Ziggy Stardust musical in late 1973, ‘Rebel Rebel’ – completed in January 1974 and released the following month – was Bowie’s last single in the glam rock style that had been his trademark. It was also his first hit since 1969 not to feature lead guitarist Mick Ronson; Bowie himself played guitar on this and almost all other tracks from Diamond Dogs, the album from which it came.
