    Listen To David Bowie's Surprising Interview About His Alter Ego, Ziggy Stardust

    “I never really felt like a rock star.”

    In 1988, David Bowie sat down for an interview with music executive Joe Smith to talk about his experiences as a musician.

    In the interview, Bowie opened upon his iconic, flamboyant alter ego, Ziggy Stardust...

    ...and how the persona was the only way he could write for himself.

    One surprising revelation he gave during the interview was that even though he was the ultimate rock star, he never really felt like one.

    The animated video and interview is part of the PBS Digital Studios' ongoing series Blank on Blank:
