The Legendary Stardust Cowboy
In words and music, this page will hope to explain the wonders and mysteries surrounding the career of The Legendary Stardust Cowboy. While these pages have the blessing of Mr. Stardust (see the letter below), there is nothing commercial or "official" about what you see here. It's just an attempt by a lot of friends and fans to bring The Ledge to life.
Here's a small sample of the song that started it all (a 1980's version): Paralyzed (240K .au sample). We've also provided a clip of the Ledge reciting some of the lyrics(200K .au).
In His Own Words: The legendary autobiography of 1969Filmaker Tony Philputt is just finishing his tribute to Mr. Stardust, Cotton Pickin' Smash!
Come back soon (early April?) and we'll have all the news from and about the Ledge!
Read about the Ledge in the book Songs in the Key of Z by Irwin Chusid, which has an entire chapter devoted to our favorite obscuro musician….as well as many others, such as the Shaggs!
