Interest in the life and times of David Bowie has exploded since his death in January, and it’s easy to see why.
Bowie was one of the most important characters in the history of rock. Combine that with the fact that he started making records in 1964 and you have a lot of biographical material that needs to be mined.
There are other Bowie bios, but this is a good one. It’s simply called Bowie: A Biography and goes through everything the man did from the 40s up to about 2010.
What makes it more interesting is that the author talked to a lot of famous people upon whom Bowie had a tremendous effect. And not the usual suspects, either. Ricky Gervais, for example. Bowie: A Biography by Marc Spitz. It’s available through Random House.
