Travel: St Louis to Nashville

David Bowie and Mick Ronson travelled from St Louis, Missouri, to Nashville, Tennessee, on 12 October 1972.

Bowie and the Spiders From Mars had recorded ‘The Jean Genie’ on 6 and 7 October. Keen to release it as a single, Bowie and Ronson mixed it at RCA Studios in Nashville on the following day, along with tracks recorded in Boston for a mooted live album.

The rest of Bowie’s band and entourage travelled to Kansas on this day, where the Ziggy Stardust Tour resumed on 15 October.
