David Bowie

Lives of Musicians

Robert Dimery

$17.99

David Bowie was a restless innovator, scoring chart hits that broke radical new ground. His image changed with almost every album, influencing high streets and catwalks alike. He became an acclaimed actor, while his androgynous aura and ambiguous sexuality proved liberating to those uncertain about their own. This book charts his evolution in the sixties, his euphoric reinvention in 1972 as Ziggy Stardust and the excessive lifestyle that nearly cost him his sanity. It revisits his artistic rebirth in Berlin, the global stardom he achieved with Let’s Dance in 1983 and his triumphant farewell, Blackstar.

Robert Dimery is a writer and editor. His previous publications include 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die, Rock ‘n’ Roll Heaven and Cult Musicians: 50 Progressive Performers You Need to Know. He has also worked for Time Out, Vogue and Guinness World Records. He lives in London.
