David Bowie & Mick Ronson, Train To Aberdeen, 1973 by Mick Rock
“[This was] taken on the train up to Aberdeen, Scotland for the first gig of David’s final Ziggy tour, 15 May 1973. Another image that got lost in [my] archive until it finally surfaced in "Moonage Daydream." I have a slew of photos on the train and in the stations of David in that amazing jacket. But the favorite one for fans is this one.
Of all my limited edition fine art prints, this may be the one that has sold the most. Maybe it’s got something to do with the ridiculously ‘glam’ look of the magic duo and the obviously mundane nature of their British Rail lunch – lamb chops, boiled potatoes, peas with the bread rolls and pats of butter. But also perhaps something to do with the warm conspiratorial way they are looking at each other. They had the rock scene by the horns and they were savoring it!” - Mick Rock
