 Key People involved in Ziggy Stardust

Trevor Bolder

Bass player in The Spiders From Mars. His stage name for the Ziggy Stardust concerts was Weird (see lyrics to "Ziggy Stardust" and credits on The Rainbow Flyer). With Mick (Woody) Woodmansey he was a member of Mick Ronson's earlier band called The Rats and later Ronno. Along with his famous plucking style of bass playing Bolder was also notorious for his very long sideboards which he variously dyed red, white and silver.
