"Bowie turned us on. Ziggy broke the mould." The Dogz play songs from the Ziggy era and beyond, without being a tribute
Now top of his game, Phil Murray began serious performing in 1968.
He achieved his first success in U-Boat, with Spider from Mars Woody Woodmansey, during the seventies, before becoming Mickie Most's prediction for stardom in the Eightie's. "From Newcastle, I gave you The Animals in the Sixties, and now I present another Geordie, and predict the Eighties as Phil Murray's decade!"
Phil was renamed Blackie by Mickie, because of his long dark hair, and appeared on RAK Records with Suzi Q, Hot Chocolate, Smokie, Racey & Exile, along with 2 of his own records, Making a Bad Boy Good, written by Alan Tarney at the same time as he wrote We Don't Talk Anymore for Cliff, and For Your Love, written by Gloria Macari for Suzie Quatro, but nabbed by Mickie at the last minute for Phil
Three albums and numerous singles on, Phil returned to his love of that magical David Bowie time period of the early Seventies, to perform nationwide, the Spirit of Ziggy Stardust show with his band The Diamond Dogz.
Phil recently had two songs included on the new Bowie tribute album The Many Faces of David Bowie, along with Mike Garson, Tony Visconti, Mick Ronson and Ian Hunter
