Shortlisted for the NMEBest Music Book Award 2018 THE SUNDAY TIMESBESTSELLER 'The definitive book on Bowie' The Times Dylan Jones's engrossing, magisterial biography of David Bowie is unlike any Bowie story ever written. Drawn from over 180 interviews with friends, rivals, lovers, and collaborators, some of whom have never before spoken about their relationship with Bowie, this is the definitive oral history of his remarkable rise to stardom and his unparalleled artistic path. Tracing Bowie's life from the English suburbs to London to New York to Los Angeles, Berlin, and beyond, its collective voices describe a man profoundly shaped by his relationship with his schizophrenic half-brother Terry; an intuitive artist who could absorb influences through intense relationships and yet drop people cold when they were no longer of use; and a social creature equally comfortable partying with John Lennon and dining with Frank Sinatra. By turns insightful and salacious, DAVID BOWIE is as intimate a portrait as may ever be drawn. It sparks with admiration and grievances, lust and envy, as the speakers bring you into studios and bedrooms they shared with Bowie, and onto stages and film sets, opening corners of his mind and experience that transform our understanding of both artist and art. Including illuminating, never-before-seen material from Bowie himself, drawn from a series of Jones's interviews with him across two decades, DAVID BOWIE is an epic, unforgettable cocktail-party conversation about a man whose enigmatic shapeshifting and irrepressible creativity produced one of the most sprawling, fascinating lives of our time.… (más)

Thought initially it was a good read but it is so repetitive that it just wears you down. Gave up. ( )

Idol, contemporary and hero, when David Bowie died it was like saying goodbye to a dear friend. Jones' choice to use oral histories to tell David's story is a good one - especially since he was so many things to so many people. It is also nice to get so many perspectives - the differences actually made for a more inclusive narrative. There are many especially memorable bits that I've only seen in this book - having read many of the other books on Bowie. More importantly, having so many people relate their own story about an event helps make Bowie into a human being. This was a man who could turn being the icon on when he donned a costume and moments later relate to people with charm and humor - unfettered by his fame. So many books focus on the albums, that it's nice to have perspective on what he was doing between the tours, his artwork, his interest in literature and incessant curiosity about what was currently happening in the world. This is a saga worthy of a true renaissance man. He made "intellectual discovery glamorous." "We're all just students that join in along the way and help him create the idea of David Bowie." ( )
