David Bowie as “Halloween Jack”, jamming to “Rebel Rebel” on ToPPoP, 1974. There are a bunch of photos and GIFs of this amazing performance floating around, but you really need to see the video! It’s just David miming, but man is it hot! 

(And for the record, that’s all David’s guitar work on the studio recording he’s miming to, too – I don’t think he gets NEAR enough credit for this crunchtastic riff and overall vibe, all-time peak glam in my book.)

Stick around for David receiving the Edison Award for the Ziggy Stardust album, a very endearing exchange with the Dutch presenter backstage.
