Overview

DAVID BOWIE is now into his fiftth decade of making music. From his first hit single, 'Space Oddity', to his vital 21st-century albums Heathen and Reality, he remains the most influential rock star of his generation. Strange Fascination chronicles Bowie's career against the colourful backdrop of post-Beatles pop culture, taking us from the glam-era gender-bending of the early 1970s, through plastic soul, the Berlin period, Scary Monsters and the huge international success of Let's Dance right the way up to his most recent collaborations and his poineering use of the Internet. It's a story of amazing creativity, of huge, showboating theatricality and of a never-ending quest to remain relevant and at pop's cutting edge.


David Buckley's unique approach to unravelling the Bowie enigma, via interviews with many of the singer's closest associates, biography and academic analysis, makes this unrivalled biography a classic for Bowie fans old and new. This revised edition of Strange Fascination comes at a time when Bowie is, once again, on a creative roll, and captures exclusive details about the tours, the making of the albums, the arguments, the split-ups, the music and , most importantly, the man himself. Also including exclusive photographic material, Strange Fascination is the most complete account of David Bowie and his impact on pop culture ever written.
