Publisher Comments:

Bowie on Bowie presents some of the best interviews David Bowie has granted in his near five-decade career. Each featured interview traces a new step in his unique journey, successively freezing him in time in all of his various incarnations, from a young novelty hit-maker and Ziggy Stardust to plastic soul player, 1980s sell-out, and the artistically reborn and beloved elder statesman of challenging popular music. In all of these iterations he is remarkably articulate and also preternaturally polite as almost every interviewer remarks upon his charm. The features in this book come from outlets both prestigious—Melody Maker, MOJO, New Musical Express, Q, Rolling Stoneand less well-known—the Drummer, Guitar, Ikon, Mr. Showbiz—but no matter the renown of the magazine, newspaper, or website, Bowie lets us approach the nerve center of his notoriously creative output.

Synopsis:

From breakthroughs in recording technology to a songs political repercussions, this electrifying collection will have music fans debating for years.  Edited by Sean Egan, a writer for such major magazines as Billboard and Goldmine, this decade-by-decade review covers events, people, performances, and every imaginable genre: classical, opera, country, folk, rock, spirituals, blues, jazz, and stage musicals.  A superb selection of critics weighs in on key albums, singles, and songs, along with biographies and commentary on the impact of major artists. Celebrate the riots that greeted the first performance of Stravinskys Rite of Spring, the spectacular explosion of punk, the creation of the moog synthesizer, the untimely death of icons, and the first breakdance.
