The Spiders From Mars were David Bowie/Ziggy Stardust's three-piece rock band from 1971 to mid 1973, however they were only officially known by this name following the album's release in June 1972. Bowie has said that the inspiration for the name came when he was writing the song "Ziggy Stardust". The band consisted of:

Mick (Ronno) Ronson (Band leader, guitar, piano and vocals)
Mick (Woody) Woodmansey (drums)
Trevor Bolder (bass)

"'re the blessed, we're the Spiders From Mars..." 'Hang Onto Yourself' (Bowie)
