The Rebirth of David Bowie
* Prices displayed are in Australian Dollars and, where applicable, GST inclusive
Floating in a most peculiar way - this work details the fall and rise of a rock superstar. This is the first biography of legendary rock alien David Bowie to focus in detail on the star's comeback - and including the most exhaustive Bowie discography ever pit on paper. By 1987, David Bowie was at a creative, critical and commercial low. His most recent album dismissed by the music press, his latest tour an unmitigated embarrassment, everyone's favourite spaceman was landing with a thud. Almost 20 years later, Bowie has re-established himself at the peak of his profession in one of the most extraordinary comebacks in rock history. His 1995 release of the astonishing 1. Outside album has been followed by equally groundbreaking efforts. He is a content family man married to a supermodel and one of the richest musicians in the world. While most Bowie biographies still focus on his early years, Hallo Spaceboy is the first to chronicle the comeback in detail. Drawing on extensive interviews with fans, colleagues and associates, it's also the eagerly anticipated follow-up to Thompson's legendary Moonage Daydream, widely hailed as one of the best Bowie-ographies ever written. With its inclusion of the most comprehensive Bowie discography ever committed to paper, Hallo Spaceboy is an absolute must-own for any serious Bowie fan.
