Overview

Hallo Spaceboy: The Rebirth of David Bowie by Dave Thompson

By 1987, David Bowie was at a creative, critical, and commercial low. His most recent album was dismissed by the music press, his latest tour written off as a disaster. Fifteen years after becoming the most colourfully controversial superstar in recent rock history, Bowie was seen as a spent force.

Almost twenty years later, Bowie has re-established himself at the very peak of his profession in one of the most extraordinary comebacks in rock history. His 1995 release of the critically-astonishing 1:Outside album has been followed by equally groundbreaking efforts. He is a content family man, married to super-model Iman, and one of the richest musicians in the world.

While most biographies on Bowie still focus on his early years, Hallo Spaceboy: The Rebirth of David Bowie is the first to chronicle the comeback in detail. Drawing upon exclusive interviews with fans, colleagues and associates, it is also the long-gestating follow-up to Dave Thompson’s Moonage Daydream (1987), widely hailed among the best David Bowie biographies.

The Rebirth of David Bowie is a truly entertaining tale of the return of David Bowie to the music scene. I am pleased to say that Mister Bowie has compilated a new album titled "The Next Day", with more than ten brand new songs for the next era. This book has many great photos of the rocker and memorabelia of concerts like ticket stubs and many other things. It is a true tale of a man who has finally came back to Earth but still manages to dance out in space. Nice Job... K. Turner, San Diego, CA. May 11, 2013, 2:13 PM.
