Clairol Air Brush - Man’s fastest hair dryer, 1971 ad by Tom Simpson

David Bowie, 1971 ad for his pre-Ziggy Stardust 1971 singles, “Oh! You Pretty Things” (a hit for Peter Noone of Herman’s Hermits), and “Moonage Daydream”/”Hang on to Yourself,” (later released on Ziggy). And in most of the world, The Man Who Sold The World (not MEN as the ad states) was released in April 1971. Just a few reasons why 1971 was so pivotal, and so busy, for our boy Bowie.
