David Bowie, a Chronology [ePub]

by Kevin Cann

The life of David Bowie has been the subject of much colourful analysis and speculation. This is a chronology of the facts from his earliest childhood, through his schooldays (where he was a contemporary of Peter Frampton), early bands, flops d'estime and to the days of Ziggy Stardust, cracked actor, sometime Berliner, sometime New Yorker, sometime Orient-obsessed and continually shifting in persona.

Extraordinarily detailed information - ranging from Bowie's first known use of hair dye, when he was at school, to his first gig, the Beckenham Arts Lab, places where he played as an unknown, then later his first associations with Iggy Pop, Andy Warhol and Oona Chaplin - is meticulously recorded. Bowie's entire career and the pivotal aspects of his private are simply and illuminatingly presented, supported by extracts from Bowie's rare interviews.

.....The chronology concludes with the most complete discography - for both singles and albums - ever compiled. As a work of reference this is the most thorough study of the life of Davy Jones a.k.a. David Bowie ever produced.
