The ch-ch-ch-changes David Bowie made to his lyrics, scratching out words and scribbling in others, together with his stage costumes and instruments, will be on show at the V&A's major Bowie exhibition opening in March 2013. As well as personal items, the show hopes to demonstrate the living legend's creative individuality and influence on music, fashion and art through photography, film, music videos and album covers. Expect Ziggy Stardust bodysuits, excerpts from 'The Man Who Fell to Earth' and set designs from the Diamond Dogs tour among the 300 exhibits.
