It's been more than 30 years since the legendary rock performer created the gender-bending Ziggy Stardust, and produced the now classic album, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars. With it, Bowie helped invent glam-rock. Over the years he has produced albums for Lou Reed and Iggy Pop and collaborated with Brian Eno. He also starred in the films The Man Who Fell to Earth, Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence and Basquiat. Bowie has a new album, Reality. The interview continues throughout the end of the show.
