David Bowie

Overview

David Bowie is the most innovative and influential musician of the last forty years. From the glam rock of Ziggy Stardust to the plastic soul of Young Americans—and its US number one single “fame”—he has refused to stand still. Not content with pioneering heavy metal on The Man Who Sold the World and challenging audience expectations with the austere synthesizer minimalism of his Berlin years, Bowie also found time to star in The Man Who Fell to Earth and Labyrinth, among many other films, and also played crucial...

Overview

David Bowie is the most innovative and influential musician of the last forty years. From the glam rock of Ziggy Stardust to the plastic soul of Young Americans—and its US number one single “fame”—he has refused to stand still. Not content with pioneering heavy metal on The Man Who Sold the World and challenging audience expectations with the austere synthesizer minimalism of his Berlin years, Bowie also found time to star in The Man Who Fell to Earth and Labyrinth, among many other films, and also played crucial roles in the success of his friends Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, and Mott the Hoople. Early explosive comments about his sexuality, a drug habit that saw him exist for months on a diet of red and green peppers, and controversial political statements (later denied), ensure that he will always be one to watch—and listen to.

Bowie being Bowie, with each musical change of direction has come to a distinctive, fresh look—and sometimes even a completely new character. Nearly forty years later, the outrageous orange mullet and kabuki-style outfits of Ziggy Stardust are as strong in the memory as the music.

Health problems may have curtailed his last stadium tour bur rumors of new material, new projects, and new ideas continue to circulate. One thing is certain: even in his seventh decade and revered as one of the elder statesmen of rock’n’roll, David Bowie will not be looking back. He only has eyes on the future.

    wow very impressed must say

    As a fan did not know anything about it. Very Comprehensive. Tremendous sets photos from all Eras. Great photos with peer rock stars like Keith Moon, Rod Stewart, Pete Townshend, Various Rolling Stones, Bobby Zimmerman, Bono & Eno, Lou Reed, and Michael Jackson, and many other Celebs. Very linear in the narrative and goes current -- includes great snapshots of the early stuff, the Spiders tour, Diamond-Soul-MWFTE, Isolar tours, the Eighties--Serious Moonlight, Glass Spider, Tin Machine, Nineties onward -Earthling, Meltdown, Reality. Lots of photos I've never seen before. It's a great celebration of the most Original Tremendous Rock Personalities ever, who deserves his peaceful dignified retirement. Thanks for the songs and may you live very well Mr. Jones.

    If you love David Bowie, you need to get this book.

    David Bowie has always been as much of a visual artist as he is a singer, so this book, full of beautiful color photos which span his long career, is a must for fans. There are a lot of pictures in the book I had never seen before. I was delighted with the large format, and enjoyed the text. It's a nice overview of the career of the man who changed music forever.
