Product Description

Review

"Pegg eloquently catalogues Bowie's proclivity for making radical jumps from one musical and fashion motif to another." - Publishers Weekly 

"All Bowie books must now be measured against Nicholas Pegg’s The Complete David Bowie ... ‘It is not only a pleasure to dip into, but also one of the few reference books that can be read cover to cover. Pegg’s encyclopaedic structure mirrors the cut-up, mix-and-match nature of Bowie’s own career, making one reconsider the very notion of a conventional rock biography." – Times Literary Supplement

“An indispensable guide for all serious collectors of David Bowie’s music.” - BowieNet

“Absolutely thorough, absolutely definitive and absolutely entertaining.” BBC Radio 5 Live

From the Publisher

The career of David Bowie has been one of the most colorful and intriguing in modern rock history. In The Complete David Bowie, now in an updated edition, Nicholas Pegg chronicles the star’s every move—from his first appearance as balladeer Davy Jones in the 60s, and his spectacular, gender–bending turn in the 70s as Ziggy Stardust, to his starring roles in films like “The Man Who Fell to Earth.” This definitive reference also includes a detailed production history and an analysis of all of Bowie’s albums; hundreds of entries with facts and anecdotes about all his songs, including unreleased rarities; and set lists and histories of every live show. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
The Complete David Bowie is definitely the best account of David�s work, presenting in the first part of the book each and every song he has ever written or sung and continuing with his albums, singles, movies and live appearances.
Don�t get me wrong, Nicolas Pegg has done a great and painstaking job and the book is a great source if you�re going to write a thesis on Bowie(!), but I wouldn�t call it fun reading, mostly because of its structure, which is similar to that of a dictionary or encyclopedia! However, there are many interesting facts and quotes that will draw your attention, and you get to hear the explanation of many of his songs from David! �e.g. I didn�t know what the theme of Heathen (The Rays) was and why it brought tears to his eyes in one of his concerts�
I think it�s a very good and detailed piece of work, as long as you know what you�re getting!

Format: Paperback
As a collector of Bowie's music, I found this book invaluable. It filled in some gaps in my understanding of the great ones music and cleverly clarifies the evolution process from one Bowie phase to the next.
The book makes reference to many rare and unreleased songs which is vital to a serious collector.
It is written plainly and factually with no hint of worship.
If you are only concerned with Bowie's music then this is the book for you. Essential.

Format: Paperback
The best book about David Bowie, in a non-bio way.
The meat of the book are its song by song chapter, and album by album chapter.
The song by song covers every Bowie song, taking about its form and whats its about.
The album by album chapter covers each album in great detail.
The book also has chapters about Bowie's art, acting, videos, ect. In all it has nearly everything you'll need to know about David Bowie's career.
