Fame, fascination, the evolution of the rebel rebel, along with the ch-ch-ch-changes Bowie made to his lyrics, scratching out words and scribbling in others, come under the spotlight, together with the Brixton lad's stage costumes and instruments, in the V&A's major show for spring 2013. Exploring Bowie's career as musical innovator and mercurial cultural icon, the exhibition looks at his influence on music, fashion and art through the decades through some 300 objects. Bowie as photographed by the likes of Brian Duffy and Terry O'Neill will provide a focus, along with more than 60 stage cosutmes including 'Ziggy Stardust'-era bodysuits, set designs for the 'Diamond Dogs' tour, sketches, scores and diary entries.
